"Tu Tatuta Tuta Ta" is a 1993 electronic song recorded by Italian music group Pin-Occhio. It was the second single from its debut album Pinocchio Vai!! and was released in June 1993, following the success of its previous hit single, "Pin-Occhio".

The song used a slightly modified riff from the 1983 song "Living on Video" recorded by Canadian band Trans-X, which was itself sampled in 2006 by Pakito. The lyrics are only composed of the title which is repeated in the refrains by a male voice.

The song achieved some success throughout Europe, including France, Switzerland and the Netherlands where it reached the top 20, but it was a hit in Belgium (Wallonia) where it charted at number four, like the band's previous single. However, the song was not successful in Germany where it failed the chart. Several additional remixes were produced for a release in Italy.
