The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show is a fictional show in which Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) uses his talents of being a kid to the ultimate. The J.K.S.A.M.E.S appeared in Season 7-Episode 10 of the NBC television show Parks and Recreation and had a very well-crafted farewell theme song that is worth sharing… for those that wanted a reminder and for those that never saw the show. Enjoy!
Well it’s time for us to go,
But I want you all to know
That Karate’s not about fighting
It’s about knowing who you are,
And being kind and honest
While you’re kicking for the stars.
Yeah, that’s the Johnny Karate way.
Keep Karate in your heart
And aspire to your dreams,
And always remember
You’re forever on my team.
Yeah, that’s the Johnny Karate Way.
The J.K.S.A.M.E.S also had wonderful, kid-friendly objectives for each show (pictured below). Don’t we all wish we grew up with a fun show like this? If you’d like to view the episode, you can find it on dvd, Netflix and Amazon.
The fifth Karate move to success is “To do something nice for someone.” FYI.
