The Guitar Pickin' Chicken™ and Her Barnyard Friends

Wing Flappin', Tail Shakin', Music Lovin'

After receiving the CD of Guitar Pickin' Chicken, I immediately added it to my Novelty/Comedy records folder at After watching both versions of the animated cartoon that includes the "Watch along cartoon version" as well as the "Sing along cartoon version," I immediately delivered it to my grandson who enjoyed it very much. A great song to use for a break in the normal radio programming.

Guitar Pickin’ Chicken by William Sherry Jr. is a standout. This hilarious little tune is reminiscent of the iconic Flying Purple People Eater track, but replace the Halloween sounds with a country guitar and the starring monster with a “wing flapping, tail shaking, guitar pickin’ chicken“. Quirky, twangy, and unabashedly fun, this track will have everyone laughing and singing along by the second chorus.

The “Guitar Pickin’ Chicken” was originally created and included in an Art Box Kids package delivered to the children at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. The Art Box Kids is a non-profit started by Cleveland Browns Center Steve Everett. With no promotion, we discovered that the song received a Half Million Radio Station site plays. Prior to, and following, the music video teachers of autistic children, as well as other teachers, used the song in their classroom. From the very first play children do the “Guitar Pickin’ Chicken Dance”; that is a dance they make up.
