  1. Fresh Prince
  2. South Park
  3. Duck Tales
  4. Pokemon (Kanto & Johto seasons)
  5. Living Single
  6. A Different World
  7. Fraggle Rock
  8. Sesame Street
  9. Static Shock
  10. Tiny Toons


We went over some good nominations in this thread:

Jamie and the Magic Torch stands out for me. :slight_smile:

It was 5 at first. I forgot to change the title.


Now that’s not fair!


I changed it to five.


The Greatest American Hero
The Dukes Of Hazzard
Three’s Company
Batman '66
Gilligan’s Island


You can edit topic titles?


I have a limited form of Mod Magic ©.


I have this one on my iPod. I’ve honestly never watched the show. I downloaded it for a buddy who runs a comic show and he had William Katt as a guest one year. So he needed entrance music. I was Katt’s chauffeur that weekend too. Incredibly nice guy.


It was a comedic take on the superhero stereotype. He gets a super suit from an alien, and loses the instructions. The whole series revolved around him not knowing how to properly use the suit, but would always win in the end. I also met him at a convention years ago, and he couldn’t have been a more gracious man. One of the great ones.


Please, people. When it comes to TV themes with lyrics, there’s only one that truly counts:


Peter Gunn
Star Trek
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Adventures of Superman
Hill Street Blues



Batman '66


Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Dukes of Hazzard
Greatest American Hero

Honorable Mentions: Show “themes” that aren’t associated with the credits:
Justified - “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” by various artists
Supernatural - “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas


Does this count? I saw it does.

If the above doesn’t i’d have to go with:


Judging by this thread, there must be a lot of alternative versions of TV themes that I always thought were just instrumental :confused:


My list
Justified- Long hard time to come is the official theme song
Fall Guy
All in the family
SWAT- if you are asking about lyrics, they are DA NANA DA NANA DA NANA
Supernatural- I know the song is older than the show but even when I hear it on the radio I think of the show


This about sums up my childhood through to teenage years-
4.Fresh Prince
5. Buffy
I really miss those shows - also honourable British mentions
Penny Crayon, Danger Mouse, Trap Door and the Wombles!!
