"My Man Stanley" is the theme of the 2001 Playhouse Disney (later Disney Junior) series Stanley. It was performed by the Baha Men, known for their hit "Who Let the Dogs Out?" as well as "Best Years of Our Lives" from Shrek and written/composed by Peter Lurye. The song also includes several spoken comments from Stanley, as well brief singing from Stanley's pets Harry and Elsie. The Baha Men are featured courtesy of S-Curve Records. A Playhouse Disney music video of the theme was released, featuring the Baha Men with Stanley, Harry, Elsie and other animals animated into the video.

The song was included as track 25 on the original Playhouse Disney album release.

In the special Stanley's Dinosaur Round-Up, the song was performed as "Cowboy Stanley," with the group Riders in the Sky performing the lead vocals and a group of cowboys performing the spoken parts, but with Harry, Elsie and Dennis also performing at the end.
