Turning Bears into Fat Dogs
Changing bears into "Fat Dogs"
In the study group's fifth year at Greendale, the Save Greendale Committee had to come up with a theme for the upcoming Mid-Term dance. Annie left the dance planning details to Jeff, Duncan, Shirley and Chang. Chang came up with the theme of "Bear down for Mid-Terms". The others rejected his idea at first but changed their minds when Chang began to cry. Neil eventually revealed that the source of Chang's inspiration was a news report about a recent bear attack at a child's birthday party. The committee quickly re-purposed all the bear decorations they completed into a new theme, "Fat Dog". Chang also created a song and dance to try and legitimize the phrase further. "Fat Dog" was first heard in the Season Five episode "Analysis of Cork-Based Networking."

Lyrics:

There's a brand new dance based on an old phrase.

It's called the Fat Dog and it will amaze.

You've heard this expression your entire life.

It's not made up!

It's not made up!

There's a brand new dance based on an old phrase.

It's called the Fat Dog and it will amaze.

You've heard this expression your entire life.

It's not made up!

It's not made up!


TriviaEdit

  • A real life Wikipedia page about "Fat Dog" was created the next day after this episode aired in reference to Shirley and Duncan having created a Wikipedia page about the term on the show. The Wikipedia page was eventually removed with a redirect left behind to another article. The original page can be seen HERE.
  • The song "Fat Dog" is used as background music for a special feature on the Community The Complete Fifth Season DVD. It plays over a montage of outtakes of various episodes from Season Five.
