The Background Singers are a group of singing voices that is heard throughout nearly every episode singing the name of an item Flapjack obtains or sees in an amusing melody. The background singers also announced characters such as Lady Nickelbottoms and The Businessman. It is unknown who or what it is but Flapjack seems to be aware of it for in some episodes (Foot Burn and Oh You Animal!) he is seen trying to find the voice's source. It might be an otherworldly entity that for some reason likes to sing the names of things that appear.


  • The voice actor is unknown and anything about it is unknown, although traces of Mark "Thurop" Van Orman's voice can be detected if one pays close attention...
  • It sings as a honkey-tonk choir in How the West was Fun.
