Alternate Versions

In the first 10 episodes of the show, the theme song, is sang by Cree Summer, and then, the rest of the episodes have the theme song sang by Macy Gray. However, in the USA, in the episodes with the Cree Summer theme songs, the Cree Summer version of the song was slowly replaced by the Macy Gray version (with "Of Lice And Friends" the last episode to use the Cree Summer version before the theme songs were completely replaced). Outside the USA, Melissa Disney (the voice of Ginger) sings the theme song of the first 2 episodes, the Cree Summer version used some episodes after and before the Macy Gray version, and the Macy Gray version in episodes after that, without them being replaced.

A breath of fresh air
27 June 2004 | by Djcool99555See all my reviews

While this show cannot compare to classics such as Rocko's Modern life or Ren & Stimpy, it is one of the best Nicktoons made in a while. It is one of those shows that captures your interest yet you can't explain why. Sadly, the Kid's network I grew up with is not the same as it once was, and there is little that todays kids will get to enjoy like I grew up with. However, compared to mediocre Catdog and plain awful Wild Thornberries, it is spectacular. As Told By Ginger is a small shimmer of hope in Nickelodeons future, which over the years has faded to black. One of the few good modern Nicktoons, hopefully it will fare better than the greats did.
