The opening sequence is traditionally played before every episode of Gumball Drama. Gumball usually recaps the previous episode first, and then the theme song begins. It is played to the tune of I Wanna Be Famous By Graeme Cornies and Dawna Toews. In 3 season 5, 6 and 7 intros are shortened.
Dear Mom and Dad I'm doin' fine, You guys are on my mind. You asked me what I wanted to be and now I think the answer is plain to see, I wanna be famous.
I wanna live close to the sun, Go pack your bags, 'cause I've already won, Everything to prove, nothing in my way I'll get there one day. Cause, I wanna be famous!
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na! I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be famous I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be famous (Whistling in tune) Shortened version (season 5-7) Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na! I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be famous I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be famous (Whistling in tune)
In the Gumball Drama Island theme song, the song begins with a total of four spotlights and cameras coming out of random places, such as out of the grass or from a tree, the last two knocking down a beaver and a squirrel. Then a clapperboard clamps down, and the camera starts moving through Camp Wawanakwa and past the host of the show, Gumball Watterson, who is drinking coffee, and commanding the camera crew from a folding chair. It then goes to the top of the cliff and then down it, where Patrick Star is seen in the water, farting and knocking out a fish with the smell. The scene pans over to Lincoln and Lori, in the lake on Bridgette's surfboard, flirting. However, the smell reaches them, and they look disgusted. As the unconscious fish reach the surface, an eagle flies by and and picks it up, dropping it somewhere in the forest, where Wubbzy is seen sitting in the forest with two birds, a chipmunk, a skunk, a frog, two squirrels, a turtle and a bunny. Wubbzy seems to get along well with them until the dead fish drops right in front of him, startling the animals and causing them to attack him, so Wubbzy screams and runs away. SwaySway and Buhdeuce is seen laughing at Wubbzy's misfortune, until they notice the pie throws at SwaySway by Luan who laughing funny. The camera then goes through the forest to where Lola and Lana are seen slap-fighting in a rubber raft that falls off a waterfall, since they were not paying attention. Once they fall by, SpongeBob SquarePants is seen practicing martial arts moves on a log stretched across a gorge behind the waterfall, up until Lynn, who is riding motorcycle, wears a football helmet, use hockey stick hit into a tennis ball, crashes into him, sending them both flying back into camp, where they crash into the confessional and knock a half-dressed Jelly and Ed out of it, revealing her pink panties, with Luna playing rock music. Darwin Watterson is then seen in the kitchen, stirring a pot of food with his bare hands. He then looks at Lisa, Daizy and Plankton, who are tied up together at the counter. They briefly glance at each other nervously, before the camera pans over to Lucy who is reading poem. Eddy holds Lily who wears stinky diaper. The camera moves out the window and pans over to Leni, who are sitting near the beach on some stairs, a genius Edd, who is working a toaster and fix it done. A seagull, with a fragment of net wrapped around its neck, is seen sitting on the water as a shark jumps over it and eats a trout in mid-air. The seagull appears to be safe until a mysterious tentacle grabs it, and pulls it under the water. Jimmy is then seen when the camera moves over to the Dock of Shame, where she is twirling fire batons in her hand. Jimmy then tosses the fire baton in the air and it switches to night. Luna and Sarah are now seen, sharing a romantic moment at the campfire pit, sitting next to each other and leaning in closely while smiling, until Ed, and puts his arms over their shoulders. The camera then zooms out, with Sarah who is mad at Ed and Luna looking awkwardly at an oblivious and smiling, Ed while the rest of the campers are seen gathered in a circle around the fire while whistling the tune of "I Wanna Be Famous!" A wooden sign with "Gumball Drama Island" painted onto it is then seen, and the words flash briefly before the screen fades out.
In the Gumball Drama Action theme song, the song once again begins with spotlights and cameras appearing out of various places, bringing up a rat from the sewers and knocking a raccoon out of a tree, before a clapperboard clamps down in front of it. The camera then makes its way through the abandoned film lot, where Gumball Watterson is seen driving a golf cart. The camera goes through some fake prop sets, and then a rack of clothing. It then goes up the replica of the 1,000-foot cliff, and then down into a small pool. Patrick Star is seen swimming in it, with a shark approaching him from behind. However, Patrick Star farts into the shark's mouth, propelling himself away and disgusting the shark, making it cough. The camera then goes up to the beach movie set, where Lola is evading the seagulls that SwaySway is shooting at him while he stands on the surfboard. However, one hits him in the face and he falls off into the pool. SwaySway is then seen laughing at Lola's misfortune, with Buhdeuce happies at him from behind. SwaySway then turns around and SwaySway and Buhdeuce share a duck hugs, then grin evilly at each other. The camera passes through them, and through a Sasquatchanakwa wearing a bra and a pink wig to a large metal door opening, revealing a big flash of light. Wubbzy, Daizy and two more sharks are now seen relaxing on beach chairs on the beach set, wearing sunglasses. The camera zooms in on Wubbzy, Luan and Daizy, who smiles it. Also shows that Luan has no longer wearing braces. Eddy is then seen in the confessional, getting his make-up done. He turns around, only to get sprayed in the eyes by some kind of spray at it. Lori and Jelly are then seen on top of two platforms, fighting each other with giant Q-tips. Lori and Jelly fight back and forth, until Jelly knocks Lori's hair off her head. The wig falls into Darwin's pot of soup in his kitchen. Darwin Watterson notices it, but simply shrugs and hands it to Lana. Lana then puts some Momma's Spice into the stew, tastes it, and smiles in delight. The camera pans over to SpongeBob SquarePants, who is in the control tent. SpongeBob presses a button, which makes a building visible on the screen explode. A bear is seen standing where the building was moments earlier, its fur charred. Ed then runs right up in front of it and waves at the camera while smiling wildly. The angry bear roars at Ed. However, Ed roars back at the bear, making it run away. Ed chases the bear throughout the film lot, and past the Lame-o-sine. The rear window of the Lame-o-sine rolls down, revealing Edd and Lucy inside, where she smiles at the camera. Lynn then opens the door for her while she smiles at him. He gestures with his arm at the red carpet behind him, and the camera follows. Multiple pairs of arms are seen leaning in front of the camera with cameras of their own, wildly taking pictures and with camera flashes everywhere, and the camera eventually comes to the stage, where Gumball is standing at the podium with a blue tuxedo. Gumball opens an envelope, and Chef, in a pink transparent dress, hands him a tray of Gilded Gumball Awards. Luna smiles at Gumball with Darwin look at Luna while Gumball and Darwin simply rolls his eyes and looks back at the camera. The image of Gumball, Darwin and Luna then becomes slightly more static-like, and the camera pulls back to reveal that this is on a giant screen. Below the screen, Lincoln and Lisa are sitting on a couch in the middle of the stage in the aftermath studio, about to kiss. But they realize that everyone is looking at them and stop, looking at the camera with shocked expressions with Lisa shoots his head like nod no. The camera pulls out to reveal all of the twenty-four contestants from the first season, sitting in the bleachers on either side of the Aftermath stage. The screen above them then changes from Gumball, Luna and Darwin to the logo for Gumball Drama Action.
Just like all the other theme songs, several spotlights and cameras appear out of strange places, then kicking a raccoon from the jet's engine, and then from a suitcase, finishing with a clapperboard clamping down, indicating the start of the episode. The camera then rushes through the Gumball Drama Jumbo Jet's first class section, through the cockpit, past Darwin, while Luna playing Rock n' Roll music and Gumball jumps out of the way. After flying out of the plane, over the CN Tower, the camera leans down and drops from the sky, passing by a familiar island and landing in a familiar lake. Patrick is seen underwater, smiling at a fish. The smile then turns into an embarrassed look as he realizes that he has lost his swimming trunks, therefore covering up his "kiwis." Above the water, SpongeBob SquarePants is practicing karate moves on top of a hut on a basket canoe, but gets knocked off by an oar thrown at him by Jimmy, who is in the same canoe, alongside SwaySway, who is also paddling along. Alligators are seen swimming around them, leaping into the air repeatedly as they paddle by. The canoe then paddles off-screen and the screen briefly shakes, implying a crash. The camera pans over, and shows that the canoe had crashed into an orange inflatable raft, which Lola is standing on. Jimmy gives Lola a flirty smile before her raft starts to sink. Jimmy leans out to try to help her, until SwaySway glares at him and he turns around and sheepishly grins at her. The camera then goes up to the sun, with a bright flash transitioning from this scene to the top of the Statue of Liberty, where Wubbzy and Daizy is helping Leni up onto a beam, smirking while doing so. Leni simply glares at him. Lynn then runs past with Jelly and Eddy in a baby carriage, until he trips on a crouching Ed. This causes Eddy and Jelly's carriage to roll right over to the edge, where it crashes into a sign, when Jelly splats by the sign and sending for Eddy flying out of the carriage, off the statue, and into the Luan, where he falls into Jelly's arms. Luan seems pleased and squirts water on Eddy's face, while Eddy seems horrified. A couple of feet behind Eddy and Luan is Edd, holding a picture of Luna, trying to remember who she is. However, he then notices a polar bear behind him, and drops the picture, running off in fear. The polar bear removes its mask to reveal Plankton, who laughs at his prank, before he is attacked by an angry baby seal, which bites her on the arm, causing him to run off in panic. Elsewhere, in the ocean, Lucy, Sarah, Buhdeuce and Cowabunga Buhdeuce are surfing, with Lana who swimming and even waving at the camera with a smile, while Buhdeuce seems a bit nervous. They eventually collide, and are knocked off their boards into the water. Lori and Lincoln are then shown crossing the famous Abbey Road crosswalk in In England together, and then ducking to avoid getting hit by the Gumball Drama Jumbo Jet as it swoops in low. The camera then cuts to the top of the plane, where all the contestants are arranged in a human pyramid. Then, the plane is shown flying through several locations, such as Paris, London, and Australia. The camera cuts back to the top of the plane, where contestants (still in a human pyramid) are singing the lyrics of the theme song and dancing, with the camera cutting to Ed at the top with Wubbzy and Daizy on his shoulder, then Cowabunga Buhdeuce and Lucy glaring at each other, then Edd at the bottom right corner, who gets hit in the face by a seagull. Then, in the cockpit, an annoyed Darwin Watterson turns the plane sharply, causing all of the contestants to fall off. While most of them use parachutes (except Ed who is being held by Lincoln) and land safely, Lola falls flat on the ground, while Lana and Edd land on their rears, the latter looking scared and is holding his head. The plane pulls up behind the group, with the season's logo on a piece of metal on the side. As it stops, the piece of metal shifts and slightly falls out of place. Eddy then falls flat on his face in front of the group, visibly shocking Lori, Leni and Eddy, and then the theme song ends.
Like the ones mentioned above, it first starts out with spotlights coming out of multiple places. The first light appears to be bent in many places, the second light has cobwebs around on river with Scuba Bear to look at camera, the third light pops out of a toxic waste bin, and the fourth light comes out of a hole in a tree with a tentacle around it. A clapperboard clamps down, and the camera goes out to Camp Wawanakwa where a creature is shown to the right side of the water. While it goes in the camp, four internsare shown carrying a tiki totem with a toxic logo on it, which appears to be too heavy for them. Gumball is on top of it with a whip, whipping them to go faster. The camera then goes through the trees, up to the top of the cliff, and dives down into the lake. Miracle Star is underwater, apparently drowning while a school of piranhas gathers around him. He is lifted up by his underpants with a fishing rod. The camera goes to the surface of the water and shows that Tripple Z was the one who pulled him up. He is shown fixing a fishing rod machine until its power flings Miracle Star up into the air, with his underpants falling onto Tripple Z's face. The camera then pans over the forest where Jo is punching a punching bag until Miracle Star falls into her arms. She sees Brick run past, so she drops Cameron and races after him. Still in the forest, Miracle Star's Frog Brother is meditating with many animals around her. Then a large, mutated groundhog pops out of the ground and roars at her, causing Miracle Star's Frog Brother and the animals to flee. The camera goes over to the waterfall where Miracle Star's Mom and Dad are in a raft; the former noticeably mad while the latter is acting like his alternate personality, Svetlana. Then their raft goes over the edge of the waterfall, and they fall out. Lightning is repeatedly lifting a massive log like a weight while he stands on a larger log that is spread out over a gorge. The raft falls past behind him while Miracle Star's Mom and Dad land on the log that he is lifting. The weight of all three of them causes the log underneath Lightning to break, and they all fall off-screen. Scott, leaning against the confessional, laughs at their misfortune until Fang comes out and scares him off. The camera then moves over to Darwin's kitchen where he pulls a pair of earmuffs out of a pot of soup, quickly putting them on before looking behind him with an annoyed expression. The camera pans over to Staci at the counter, babbling away until Darwin shoves a spoon into her mouth to shut her up. Next to her, Anne Maria is seen with six used bottles of hair spray around her. She appears to be on her seventh, spraying it on her hair until she realizes that the camera's there, which she sprays angrily. The camera then goes over the beach where Jo wins the race against a noticeably exhausted Brick. The camera then pans over to show Sam playing one of his video games on the Dock of Shame. Sasquatchanakwa taps his shoulder and makes him turn around, then takes the handheld system from his hands. Once Sam sees what happened to his game, he unsuccessfully tries to get it back, as Sasquatchanakwa starts playing his game. Dakota then grabs the camera and moves it over to her, where she kisses the lens, leaving a pink lipstick stain. An intern briefly appears to wipe it off. Dakota then starts texting on her cell phone until the paparazzi arrives, and start taking pictures of her while she poses. Then a bucket of water is dumped on her from above, and when she looks up angrily, it is revealed to be Gumball on a jet pack. The burst of fire from his jetpack transitions the scene from day to night, where Mike and Zoey are holding hands until Darwin comes over in a HazMat suit, holding a pair of tongs that holds the Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom. Mike and Zoey quickly retract from the dangerous marshmallow, and the camera zooms out to show the entire cast around the campfire. Everyone is whistling the theme while staring nervously at the marshmallow. The camera shows the season's title on a wooden sign, which flashes twice before the screen fades to black.
Like the next season, the intro for Gumball Drama: Bikini Bottom is shortened. It begins with equipment popping up from random places around the island. The first two are spotlights, the first one appearing near a waterfall and, the second one swinging out by a tree. The next two equipment pieces are cameras; one camera appears underneath a lily-pad that had a frog on it near Scuba Bear (from Gumball Drama: Revenge of the Island Intro is the second time), while the other appears from the inside of a rock, knocking a seagull off of it. A clapperboard then clamps down and the camera starts moving through Bikini Bottom as it passes by SpongeBob, who is being pushed aside by Gumball. The camera then enters the woods, where Patrick is plucking berries off a flower before Miracle Star dumps a bucket that is full of them on his head. When Patrick turns around, he sees Miracle Star, who is on his knees, presenting him with a bouquet of flowers. Annoyed, he knocks the flowers out of his hands. The scene shifts to Miracle Star's Frog Brother, Lana, and several animals listening to Lola singing. An irritated Lana pushes Lola off the cliff edge, causing all the animals to attack her, while Sky watches in horror. Down the cliff, Squidward, Larry the Lobster and Mr. Krabs are on top of a tree, watching Lola being saved by a flock of birds. The camera then shifts to Lola being annoyed by Lana making sound effects and Darwin "casting" a spell. Nearby, Evil Lola watches as Lola laughs evilly and activates a robot. The robot; however, malfunctions and begins to short circuit, scaring Lola, while Evil Lola opens up an umbrella to protect herself from the sparks. The robot explodes and as soon as the smoke dissipates, the scene shifts to Jasmine and Shawn sitting next to each other at the Campfire Ceremony. Darwin pops up in between them kissing by Lola, the camera zooms out and reveals the other contestants whistling to the tune, while Lola has an awkward look on her face. The season's title is seen above them on a wooden sign that flashes briefly as the screen goes black.
This intro is noticeably shorter than previous seasons as it skips the first two verses, resulting in half of the song being truncated, and instead cutting straight to the chorus of "I wanna be famous." Like the past four sequences, it starts out with various equipment, from cameras to spotlights, appearing in different places. The first one appears with a price tag on it, while the second one has a sleek shine on it. The third one pops up, knocking out a toilet paper roll in the process. Next to the spotlight is a spray bottle. The fourth spotlight comes out of a tree, with a bar of soap and a brush popping out beforehand. It then shows a pair of hands closing a clapperboard and has the camera zooming in from right to left. The camera shows both the McLean Brand Spa along with the regular cabins, the communal bathroom, and a squirrel. The camera then goes to the cliff, showing Gumball and Darwin in a helicopter in the process; the former is shown holding a case with a scared look on his face and Miracle Star looks at Gumball and Darwin. When the camera reaches the top off the cliff, it dives off into the lake. In the water, Lola and Lana are shown fighting over a treasure chest until they both get shocked when the chest opens, revealing Wubbzy, a bunch of McLean-Brand Gumball Heads, and Mr. Coconut inside. In the background, Luna is seen swimming away from Fang, with Daizy hanging onto his tail. The camera then goes above the water, where both teams are shown battling each other with jousting sticks. Lynn is shown fighting Leni and effortlessly taking her down, Lightning taking down Tripple Z in the same gesture, Evil Lola taking down Lori, and then SwaySway and Buhdeuce both battling Cowabunga Buhdeuce, who is armed with a burning jousting stick, and is glaring at the couple with a devious grin on her face. The camera then zooms in closer to the top part of Cowabunga Buhdeuce's jousting stick, which transitions into the Campfire Ceremony. In the ceremony, Jimmy and Sarah are about to kiss until Leni sneaks up on them, and takes a photo of them. Shocked by the flash of the camera, they turn around and cover their eyes after the picture is taken. While the picture gets taken, the camera zooms out showing the rest of the contestants and Gumball, with all of them, minus Lola, Lana and Gumball, either having an angry or confused face. Gumball is shown smiling while Lana is shown smirking. The camera shows the season's title on a wooden sign, which flashes twice before the screen fades to black.
Like the previous season, the intro for Total Drama: Pahkitew Island is shortened. It begins with equipment popping up from random places around the island. The first two are spotlights, the first one appearing near a waterfall and, the second one swinging out by a tree. The next two equipment pieces are cameras; one camera appears underneath a lily-pad that had a frog on it near Scuba Bear (from Gumball Drama: Revenge of the Island Intro is the third time), while the other appears from the inside of a rock, knocking a seagull off of it. A clapperboard then clamps down and the camera starts moving through Pahkitew Island as it passes by Topher, who is being pushed aside by Gumball. The camera then enters the woods, where Samey is plucking berries off a bush before Amy dumps a bucketthat is full of them on her head. When Amy turns around, she sees Rodney, who is on his knees, presenting her with a bouquet of flowers. Annoyed, she knocks the flowers out of his hands. The scene shifts to Sky, Sugar, and several animals listening to Ella singing. An irritated Sugar pushes Ella off the cliff edge, causing all the animals to attack her, while Sky watches in horror. Down the cliff, Jasmine and Shawnare on top of a tree, watching Ella being saved by a flock of birds. The camera then shifts to Dave being annoyed by Beardo making sound effects and Leonard "casting" a spell. Nearby, Scarlett watches as Max laughs evilly and activates a robot. The robot; however, malfunctions and begins to short circuit, scaring Max, while Scarlett opens up an umbrella to protect herself from the sparks. The robot explodes and as soon as the smoke dissipates, the scene shifts to Jasmine and Shawn sitting next to each other at the Campfire Ceremony. Gumball pops up in between them wearing a zombie mask, which scares Shawn into running away. As Gumball takes off the mask, the camera zooms out and reveals the other contestants whistling to the tune, while Jasmine has an awkward look on her face. The season's title is seen above them on a wooden sign that flashes briefly as the screen goes black.
Unlike the opening sequence of Gumball Drama, the opening sequence for The Ridonculous Race is instrumental. The intro begins with an overview of the Earth before a hand holding a Travel Tip appears. The camera zooms in, revealing all eighteen teams running in three rows, six teams in each row. The scene shifts to a map of the world, showing the visited countriesbeing highlighted. The next scene then shows photos of some of the visited countries. A Travel Tip then cuts the scene into three sections, each showing a different mode of transportation that are used throughout the Race; a train, a plane, and a bus. A taxi stops by and opens its door as the camera zooms in, showing pictures of all eighteen teams. In the end, the scene cuts to the main logo of the Ridonculous Race with a plane that flies across the screen, spinning the N.
