Johny Johny Yes Papa

“Johny Johny Yes Papa”, sometimes spelled “Johnny Johnny Yes Papa”, is a nursery rhyme about a young boy who is confronted by his parent for eating sugar without permission. On YouTube, the song is often featured in “amateur quality” animated music videos. On July 9th, 2009, the Shemrock Nursery Rhymes YouTube channel uploaded an animated video of a young boy who is scolded for eating sugar, featuring the rhyme sung to the tune of the children’s song “Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star” playing in the background. In the first six years, the video garnered over 2.9 million views.

On June 12th, 2012, the Turtle Interactive YouTube channel posted an animation in which a father (who strongly resembles Peter Griffin of Family Guy) confronts his child in the kitchen while singing the rhyme. On August 2nd, 2013, the ChuChuTV YouTube channel uploaded an animated video featuring the nursery rhyme. On June 1st, 2014, a thread about the animation was created on the /co/ (comics and cartoons) board on 4chan.  On November 14th, the ChuChuTV channel uploaded an updated version of the animation (shown below, left).[2] On October 9th, 2014, YouTuber EdukayFUN uploaded a poorly rendered 3D animation featuring the song, in which a father figure is angered when he catches his son eating sugar, silverware and pigs (mirror below, right).

 
 

On January 29th, 2015, YouTuber super hero kids rhymes uploaded another 3D animation featuring the superhero The Incredible Hulk singing the rhyme to a green child (mirror below).

 

2018 Revival

On August 18th, 2018, Twitter [9] user @b6ner posted a clip from YouTuber[10] BillionSurpriseToys, which combined “Johny Johny Yes Papa” with the “Baby Shark” song. The video has since been removed due to a copyright complaint. In the coming days, many videos featuring the BillionSurpriseToys video were taken down due to copyright claims by We Bros Media Private Limited, the owners of the BillionSurpriseToys channel. On August 30th, 2018, Twitter user @Slazo tweeted a screenshot of a DMCA takedown notice for one of his Johny Johny videos, followed by a message that the email contained a “huge list of other tweets and Twitter accounts they reported”. Meanwhile, the @YesPapaNoSugar[11] novelty account was removed from the site for unknown reasons.
