The opening theme is the theme song of The Amazing World of Gumball. The full introduction is aired along with most worldwide airings of the show, but the US decided not to air the full theme. Instead, the US airs a shortened version that simply plays the ending note of the original opening theme along with the title screen of the series.


The title card.

For the composing of the theme song, Ben Bocquelet asked composer Ben Locket to score the original early reel of the show in 2009.[1] Bocquelet sent Locket various production images, and Locket felt the show needed a bright and quirky theme with a good vibe to match the feeling of the colorful art styles. The arrangement was created for the early reel, but was later redone for the opening of the show.


In the United Kingdom and most other parts of the world, the opening theme music and video are played before each airing of The Amazing World of Gumball. The introduction is a disjointed display of various psychedelic images of various inhabitants of the city of Elmore, accompanied by a cheery and bright melody.

US version

In the United States airings of The Amazing World of Gumball, the theme song is shortened to a length of five seconds. A possible reason for this is the American version of Cartoon Network tends to sell as much advertising as possible to maximize profits. This is a common tactic used by American television networks that often precludes full end credits from being shown, often abridging, minimizing, or, in Nickelodeon and the USA's case, showing the credits on the lower left part of the screen as the episode is ending, to the chagrin of many viewers who may miss gags/extra bits during the credits.
