Best TV theme song? Please post a link

My favorites to sing along to:


Timon and Pumbaa

The Muppet Show

Speaking of TV themes that awakened something, the notion of girls skinny dipping in a water tower seemed deliciously naughty to me as a kid (been keeping half an eye on this thread, and I don’t think this has been posted yet):

“A wiener hot dog makes her lose control!” :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Ja, sure!

@terentii Thanks for posting The Farmer’s Daughter themes (hadn’t heard these before, except perhaps when I was too young to have remembered them). I just added the second (jazzy) version to my phone’s Space Age Pop playlist.

Glad to be of service! :+1: I like to think of Congressman Morely on TFD as an ancestor of Commodore Matt Decker.

Surprised no one has posted any of these yet (at least, I don’t think so):

The theme in this clip (The Rebel) starts at 1:44.

OMG, that last one was exciting! Phew! :relieved:

Crap! I had this one paired with Branded, but it got erased somehow. Oh, well…

… And there used to be a little box of Tide in the lower left-hand corner!

Here’s an alternate theme for The Saint, just for good measure:

some from my childhood

The Water Margin

White Horses

The Flashing Blade

Black Beauty

Quite why there is a horsey theme running through these I just don’t know.

Here’s Return Of The Saint. The 70s loved their jazzy drums.

Words of Windom. :slightly_smiling_face:

Fun fact about the “George of the Jungle” theme: George was supposed to live with identical twins: Bella and Ursula. The twins concept was dropped but the theme song was never rewritten!

I don’t know where you got that info from. The lyrics are:
“Then away he’ll schlep
on his elephant Shep
While Fella and Ursula
Stay in step”

It was a little in-joke because he would call her “Fella” constantly.

Czarcasm, you are right! I stand corrected. Link to lyrics.

Funny looking fella who never shave.

I never realized how infectious this theme is until my daughter and I were laughing at an episode of the show on PBS last Sunday. I was able to sing it without missing a beat, despite not having heard it in decades. (My daughter was greatly amused.)

The polyester industry must have been hit hard when the show was finally cancelled. :nauseated_face:

Danger Mouse always amused the hell out of me.

I love this theme:

I LOVE :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: Wallace & Gromit.

Metalocalypse’s theme song totally fucking rocks!
