"Foot loose and phalanges free...Toe-ta-lly liberating...Kanga-po-da!
Making your feet feel freeee...Toe-ta-lly liberating...Kanga-po-da!...
Kangapoda makes your feet feel free".
Perhaps it was the already fun sounding ‘Kangapoda’, but Hal immediately thought about creating a jingle. He had studied in business school how, in the 1920s, a fun jingle had rescued Wheaties from being retired by General Mills. And he thought a fun jingle could help introduce the ergonomic benefits of Kangapoda to the basically staid bedding landscape. He also thought that a shorter, reinforcing jingle could cost-effectively support and buttress the far-more-expensive-to-place infomercial that he planned on developing. So Hal wrote the words and asked his Uncle Norman (Dr. Norman Steinbaum), a retired ophthalmologist and a classically-trained pianist, if he could develop the melody. We think it came out pretty good.
