Yakkity Yak is an AustralianCanadian animated television series created by Mark Gravas that ran on Teletoon in Canada and on Nickelodeon in Australia from November 9, 2002 to December 12, 2003.

Theme song

A modified version of the 1958 song Yakety Yak by The Coasters (in which children sing some portions) is used as the series' theme song.
