Bob Merrill - That Doggie In The Window

1953 edition piano/vocal sheet with Patti Page on cover.

"(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?" is a popular novelty song written by Bob Merrill in 1952. It was adapted from a well-known Victorian music hall song. The best-known version of the song was recorded by Patti Page on December 18, 1952 and released by Mercury Records as catalog number 70070, with the flip side being "My Jealous Eyes." It reached #1 on both the Billboard and Cash Box charts in 1953. However, Mercury, the record label which distributed Patti Page's recordings at the time, had poor distribution in the United Kingdom. Therefore, a recording by Lita Roza was the one most widely heard in the UK, reaching #1 on the UK Singles Chart in 1953. It also gave Roza the title of being the first British woman to have a number one hit in the UK chart.]


The song's lyrics tells the story of a young woman who has to go on a trip to California, and wants to buy a dog for her "sweetheart" so that he will not be lonely, and so that any robbers will be scared away.

In the media

* The song's title is also the title of a book for pre-school children by Iza Trapani (author, illustrator) and Bob Merrill (author). In nursery rhyme style, the story is told of a young boy who falls in love with a spotted puppy. Trapani's watercolors illustrate the book.

* In the Wallace and Gromit film The Wrong Trousers, Gromit's nemesis, Feathers McGraw, plays a droning Hammond Organ version of "Doggie in the Window" at a loud volume on the radio, in an attempt to drive Gromit out of the house.

* It is also featured in the video game BioShock.

* It is the eleventh song in the game Lemmings.

* It is featured in an episode of the British soap EastEnders. In the 19 August 2008 episode the character Tiffany Dean storms off to her room and plays the song on repeat. Her beloved dog Wellard had just died in the 15 August 2008 episode.

* In the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, the phrase is used as one of the official mottoes of the city of Ankh-Morpork, albeit in Latin ("Quanti canicula ille in fenestra?" ).

* In season 5 of Seinfeld, Newman sings it on the way to kidnapping a dog.

* In the American sitcom, Oliver Beene, Oliver's friend Michael sang it while holding up his small dog.

* This song would be played as the theme to Dean "Bulldog" Richie on the Continuous Call Team Australian Rugby League Radio show on radio station 2GB in Sydney, Australia.

* It is also featured in an episode of the UK TV series, Spaced.

* In a 1952 Peanuts comic strip, Snoopy implores Charlie Brown to play the tune on the latter's record player three hundred times.

* In the movie Breakfast on Pluto (film) the lyrics are discussed implying some controversy between the use of the word "waggitty" or "waggley" between the characters. In spite of their fictional conclusion that it is "Waggitty", The correct answer is "Waggelly" [3], "waggitty" likely being a UK or Irish idiom where the film takes place.

Other versions

A reggae version was recorded by Barbara Jones for Trojan Records. A parody version was recorded by Homer and Jethro called "How Much Is That Hound Dog in the Window?".

The song has also been covered by many groups and is available on many children songs CDs and is considered a Children's music in many countries. It can also be found on many musical toys made since the late 60s. For example, a Sankyo music box made in the 70s played the song, as do many musical toys manufactured today.
