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.

User Reviews

Best thing out of Nick in awhile, IMO
17 April 2006 | by scissorhands__emilySee all my reviews

This show is pretty good and a lot better than shows like 'Zoey 101' and 'Romeo!', which are completely unrealistic. Although this is a cartoon I can still relate with stuff on it (I am still in school so I can def. relate) like having friends get jealous because your new boyfriend is taking all your time away from them, although these are usually the really attached ones. It's different than a lot of pre-teen/young teen shows because it actually deals with real things apart from school bullies and the same old clichés. Even though the main char. Ginger's best friend Dodie is really obsessed with becoming popular, I don't believe Ginger is. She is just an average girl whose everything gets mixed up because the most popular girl thinks she might be okay. If Ginger was so into becoming popular she would of immediately ditched her best pals and gone and become one of Courtney's clique. This show deals with real things, including death, first time using makeup or shaving legs (I know, not such a big deal as death, but the younger audience will still relate with these changes in themselves). I totally recommend this show for anyone that is open to watching pre-teenish shows, especially when they're good like 'As Told by Ginger'.
