Waffles and Mochi is the puppet-based show led by former first lady Michelle Obama, as seen on Netflix. Let’s explore its theme tune…
With an almost Sesame Street feel, the series features two puppets: one waffle-covered character Waffle, and Mochi, a squishy with animated eyes.
They were both born in Land of Frozen Food, and feature as the main characters in the series’ theme song – which fans are now loving.
So, let’s explore the Netflix show’s theme song, as well as the singers and creators behind the catchy beat!
What is the Waffles + Mochi theme song?
Playing on their characters, Waffles and Mochi introduce themselves on the theme song, with the video showing them going around a supermarket.
It has a childhood-like feel, with the songs mostly spoken to a catchy tune.
Hired by Mrs. O at a supermarket, they travel from the Land of Frozen Food to learn how to become chefs, with the use of fresh ingredients.
The singing part is all done by a certain singer, but the words of Waffles uses the voice of Michelle Zamora, while Piotr Michael does Mochi’s voice.

The well-known American actress has an array of talents, including being a comedian and singer, too.
Her singing career began in the 1990s, when she was a member of the alternative rock band The Rentals, and then improv group The Groundlings.
The 48-year-old is a mother-of-four, so it’s likely that her children might be hearing their mum’s musical talents on Waffles + Mochi!
And it’s not just Maya Rudolph who left her mark on viewers, as another featured song was the tomato-based I’m A Fruit by Sia.
