The Amphibia Theme Song is a similar instrumental of the song Welcome to Amphibia. It appears in every episode, except Toad Tax, Prison Break, and Reunion.

Appearance

The intro consists of originally animated footage which introduces us to the characters.

  • First, we see Anne Boonchuy, Sasha, and Marcy glancing at the Magic Chest while Anne opens it. Blasting light at the three girls the chest and Anne disappears (with the Chest leaving first).
  • We then see Anne face first in a puddle than to stand up and realize she is not home. It then pans out to show a lily-pad shaped island.
  • We see creatures, Amphibians, and more as it passed to Anne ducking under The Plantar Family’s House small door then standing straight up with her hands on her hips. She then gets interrupted as a bunch of Dragonflies zoom over top her head.
  • The cam follows the Dragonflies to an upper window which opens and introduces Sprig Plantar. He trips out the window falling. We then enter a room where Hop Pop Plantar is reading and looks out the window to see Sprig falling for his life. Sprig lands in a bucket than getting hit in the air by his younger sister who uses the bucket to stay cool in her water.
  • Sprig then joins Anne and points the way. We then follow Anne and Sprig to various locations and meeting different characters. Hop Pop and Polly also appear in scenes.
  • Then we see an old printed image of the same three Human girls from the first shots with the image being subtitled with "BFFs!!" and a heart. It is appeared to be stuck in the branch of a tree while the wind blows it as it storms.
  • We then see the main characters meet in front of a pond, joined by other supporting characters, joined by random background Amphibians who appear closer to the screen.
  • The Amphibia logo appears then a shine streaks across it with nature background sounds. The theme ends there. The short version also revolves around this, though the nature sounds are absent and the camera pans differently. Behind the logo is a stone carving of Anne, Sasha, and Marcy all armed with weapons fighting against a giant toad-like creature (Possibly Grime) with flame in his hands.

Trivia 

  • If you listen closely, the instrumental theme is not the same theme as the one in Welcome to Amphibia, rather a different rendition of the same theme.
  • The Plantar Farm door and window effects, as well as the yellow terrain and the boulder effects, are animated in CGI.
  • Footage of the chest opening and the same object and three girls being transported to Amphibia was used in Best Fronds.
  • A short version of the intro is used In Toad Tax and Prison Break.
  • On Disney XD the song was shortened.
  • This version was composed by TJ Hill while Welcome to Amphibia is composed by Brad Breeck.
  • In the French dub, the "BFFs" caption is removed from the picture of Anne, Sasha and Marcy. Maybe due to France or other European countries was not LGBT friendly.

Behind the Scenes 

Early Development

  • An early version of the instrumental theme was used when the intro was first revealed at San-Diego Comic-Con 2018.
    • The intro footage animated by Yotta was slightly different in the Comic-Con version and the Welcome to Amphibia music video. Some of these differences include:
      • Some of the colors look a bit saturated and a bit vibrant in the SDCC footage and the Welcome to Amphibia music video compared to the final version.
      • Sound effects aren’t present, though they might be present in the Welcome to Amphibia music video, but were muted off.
      • The Disney text at the end of the intro is much smaller compared to the Welcome to Amphibia music video and the final version.
      • On the Welcome to Amphibia music video, a blur filter is present and the "Created by Matt Braly" is missing.
