"Sounds of Christmas Day" is a song originally written for the 1972 Hanna-Barbera animated television special A Christmas Story. It is sung in the special's opening sequence, and again in the closing credits.

Hanna-Barbera used the song again five years in A Flintstone Christmas. Here, the song plays during a montage as Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble are delivering Santa Claus's presents all over the world. An instrumental version of it is also heard in 'Tis the Season to Be Smurfy when the Smurfs are decorating the old couple's home.


Sleigh bells ring
To say it's Christmas
Children sing
The song of Christmas
Santa brings
The joy of Christmas
All on Christmas Day

The sound of toy trains going
Chugga-chugga down the track
Around and then they're coming back
A chugga-chugga jumping Jack

The sound of mama dolls
Say "Mama mama mama" and
A tootie-tootie horn
And a drum that goes bam-bam

Oohs and aahs
We hear on Christmas
Squeals and yells
We cheer on Christmas

Children bring
The joy of Christmas
Sounds of Christmas Day
The happy sounds you hear
On Christmas Day
