I'm 43 years old and just about 6 weeks from becoming 44 years old, and I still smile when I hear this.

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.

In no particular order. They are all forever stuck in my brain:

The Love Boat - "Love, exciting and new. Come aboard. We're expecting yooooouuuu..."

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - "Hey, Hey, Hey! It's Faaaat Albert!"

BJ and the Bear - "Hey there, where you goin'? Not exactly knowin'. Who says you have to call just one place hommmmmeeee...."

Diff'rent Strokes - "Now the world don't move to the beat of just one drum. What might be right for you might not be right for some..."

Eight is Enough - "There's a magic in the early morning we've found, when The sunrise smiles on everything around..."

I could go on. My brain is filled with so much useless information...

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.

It's really hard for me to limit it to just five. So I have two top 5 lists: one for kids' shows and one for the rest.

Top 5 - Kids' shows:
1. Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
2. Fraggle Rock
3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)
4. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego
5. Darkwing Duck

Top 5 - Everything else:
1. The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson
2. Perfect Strangers
3. Greatest American Hero
4. Friends
5. Psych

Fat Albert has the greatest theme song of any cartoon as far as I'm concerned.

Muppet Babies also had a wonderful theme song for a cartoon show.

Here's my top 5 favorite 'kids series' themes:
1. Digimon: Digital Monsters (Season 1, 2, & 3)
No offense to people who like the song but that made my ears bleed, it's really bad and they used the same song for the first three seasons? The original version had awesome music but I prefer the german adaptations of the songs, I prefer the german singer's voice.
Digimon
Digimon 02
Digimontamers
Digimon Frontier
Digimon Savers

I like the Tamers Opening best, but they're all pretty good.

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.

This doesn't have any lyrics (so far as I'm aware) but it's funktastic. The first 14 seconds are pretty sweet, as is the whole theme really.

All this talk about kids show theme songs and no love for 'the banana splits?'

Far Out Space Nuts by the Kroffts had a pretty sweet opening theme song. The show itself was dumber than Bob Denver's socks but had great music and pretty good effects for a mid-70's Saturday morning kids' program.
