We are looking for slide shows, animation, live action, a combination of all of these or maybe you can come up with something totally new and incredible. So put on your thinking caps and your creative shoes, get your class or family or your afterschool program together and make a video based on one of the following Bill Harley songs!

The Songs:


Pizza Shake There Goes My Brother Again
Love of the Game There's A Pea on My Plate
I Wanna Play Monsters in the Bathroom
Barbie's Head is Missing I'm Busy
Mom and the Radio Wacka Wacka Woo
I Don't Want to Wait Havin' A Party
Pirate Song You're Driving Me Crazy
Moving Day  

We are asking for your video to be a Bill Harley song for the simple fact that most of Bill's stories are too long! If you have a favorite song that's not on the list please let us know.


  • Send us an email with your top three choices and we'll let you know which one(s) we'd love for you to create (we want to make sure all the songs are chosen!)

Who can participate?

Anyone! This is an activity perfect for a group, whether it be a class, a family or an after school organization.

Last year a group of third graders made a video based on Bill's story Battle of the Mad Scientists- it's a RIOT - too long for us to put up in one piece - but here are the links if you want to see it to get inspired.

Battle of the Mad Scientists (Part One)
Battle of the Mad Scientists (Part Two)

What you have to do:

There are tons of ways to make a video: you could make a slide show (a series of drawings or photographs set to Bill's song); you could make a cartoon drawing pictures or using a computer program to make drawings; you could act out the song and video tape yourself doing it; you could combine any or all of the above; or maybe you can think of something that we haven't!


Please note the best formats to put your video in are .mp4, .mov or .avi.

Once you're done:

Mail the finished product to
