I Love to Singa is a Merrie Melodies animated short distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures in 1936. The short was directed by Tex Avery and is based upon a song written by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg for the feature-length film The Singing Kid. The cartoon focuses around a young owl who wants to sing jazz, but is held back by his musical parents who insist he sings only traditional classical music.

A reference to the short is made in the pilot episode of South Park. In the episode, alien "visitors" have a beam which turns people into cute, rosy-cheeked versions of themselves and makes them sing the song "I Love to Singa."
