"Kookaburra" was a traditional nursery rhyme. Trish Webber sang it to calm her daughter Chloe whenever times got tough. The song's effect on Chloe subdued a monster based on a drawing of her father. (TV: Fear Her)

Trish was heard to sing, in part:

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra!
Gay your life must be

Behind the scenes Edit

  • A loop of the song plays in the "Art Attack" game on the Defending the Earth! website. The audio itself originated from "Barney and Friends".
  • The song is strongly associated with the Girl Guides, since writer Marion Sinclair originally wrote it for a Girl Guides song competition in Australia. This makes it likely that audience members Chloe's age in Britain would have recognised the song on transmission several parts of the English-speaking world. The song has no particular tradition, however, in the American Girl Scouts, perhaps lessening the impact of the song on American audiences.
