Previously nicknamed "Boy Gary" (Howard called his college roommate Dr. Lew Weinstein "boy" when giving an order; preceded by "Boy" Lee Davis at WNBC), Dell'Abate's "Baba Booey" moniker originated on ''The Howard Stern Show'' on July 26, 1990, after telling a story of his prized collection of [[cel|animation cels]]. In the course of discussing a [[Quick Draw McGraw]] cel he might purchase, he misstated the name of McGraw's [[sidekick]] '''[[The Quick Draw McGraw Show|Baba Looey]]''' as '''Baba Booey'''. As is typical of the show, the rest of the cast "goofed" on his mistake, becoming especially merciless since he was mulling the purchase of a cel of a character without even knowing the character's correct name. Dell'Abate said something to the effect that they would forget the name by the next day, yet it has remained to this day. Eventually he titled his autobiography ''They Call Me Baba Booey''.<ref>{{cite episode|series=The History of Howard Stern|serieslink=The History of Howard Stern|title=Television Triumph, Radio Tragedy|network=[[Sirius Satellite Radio]]|airdate=2009-01-02}}</ref>

"Baba Booey" as a term has become a [[mantra]] for fans of ''The Howard Stern Show'' and is often used during [[crank calls]] to live network television or radio broadcasts. For example, a call made to [[ABC News]] during the low-speed police chase of [[O. J. Simpson]]'s Ford Bronco through the streets of [[Brentwood, Los Angeles, California]], signed off with "And Baba Booey to y'all!" Sportscaster [[Al Michaels]] explained to anchor [[Peter Jennings]] the significance of that phrase. More recently, a US Olympic athlete screamed "Baba Booey" into the camera during the opening ceremony of the 2012 olympic games. <ref>[http://deadspin.com/152275/great-moments-in-al-michaels-history "Great Moments In Al Michaels History"], Deadspin.com, n.d.</ref>
