Daddy Dewdrop is a pseudonym for American songwriter Richard “Dick” Monda.
After producing music for the American cartoon series Groovie Goolies, he released the song Chick-A-Boom, originally written for the show. Monda put together a backup band of studio musicians, including Tom Hensley, who later became the musical director for Neil Diamond, and Butch Rillera, who later became a member of the group Redbone, and recorded a version of the song, retitled Chick-A-Boom (Don’t Ya Jes’ Love It).
