Theme SongEdit

Pow Wow, the Indian boy,

Loved all the animals and the woods;

Pow Wow, the Indian boy,

Loved all the animals and the woods;

Pow Wow was a friend

Of all the animals in the woods;

If there was any trouble,

He would help them if he could;

If Pow Wow couldn't help them,

He would go to the Medicine Man,

And he would tell them stories

Just how it all began,

All began, all began. . . .
