"Hooray for Captain Spaulding" is a song, originally from the 1928 Marx Brothers Broadway musical Animal Crackers and the 1930 film version. It later became well known as the theme song for the Groucho Marx television show You Bet Your Life (1950–1961), and became Groucho's signature tune and was usually played when he was introduced on various talk shows and the like.

The modern version of the situation comedy radio show Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel uses this song for its opening theme.
