Begone Dull Care is the third studio album by Canadian synthpop duo Junior Boys, released in 2009. The album was released on March 24 in Canada and April 7 in the United States.[6]

It is named for Begone Dull Care, a short film by National Film Board animator Norman McLaren inspired by the music of Canadian jazz pianist Oscar Peterson, which influenced the album's conception and creation.[6] The front cover gives the band name in French, along with Caprice en Couleurs, the French title of the film; the entirety of the liner notes is presented bilingually, including song titles.
