Your all-time favorite television theme songs. (other than Cheers, because that's a no-brainer)

I always thought Green Acres was one of the most clever. I like Curb's theme now. A tuba bass line is always funny.

I agree with the Curb theme, and I know the Green Acres them is famous but I don't know how the song goes.

I like Fresh Prince of Belair and it's theme. That was the only kind of hip hop I could actually stand.

That 70's Show is pretty good too.

I liked "The Wild, Wild West," "Hawaii Five-O," and "Mission Impossible." I liked the great jazz sign-off theme for the last couple of seasons of "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet." If we're counting borrowed music, then add "Bosom Buddies" ("My Life") and "The Huntley-Brinkley Report" (Second movement, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony) to my list.

Yeah.. instrumental themes versus lyrical themes.... that's a pretty big motzoh ball hangin' out there.

I had Batman, Hawaii Five-O, Partridge Family, and a bunch of TV show songs on 45 when I was growing up. (Google "45 rpm" for anyone new to this world)

If we're going with instrumental themes as well, "Law and Order" gets my vote

Well, can we at least all agree on The Brady Bunch being the worst ever?

Yes, "The Brady Bunch" song stunk. And I nominate "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" for runner-up. Too much corn.

The 70s and 80s are a gold mine of awful.

I like themes that have some original thought and creativity behind them.

Like the way The Munsters theme combined the "scary sounding" organ music with a typical wacky sitcom-style theme layered over it. The Adams Family sort of did that too.... or the Hee-Haw style of The Beverly Hillbillies... or the way Gilligan's Island had the short little fills to go along with the characters after their names were sung...

Full House, Whos The Boss, and most others from the 70s and 80s? Blahhhh!!!

"What would we dooo baby... without ussss...."

Anyone got a Pepto Bismol in their wallet?

Some of these songs are so bad I've blanked them out. Time for a little Sanford & Son.

Best TV theme song has got to be from The Bob Newhart Show.

Anyone caught singing "Welcome Back Kotter" will be placed on Hop Sing's "do not deliver" list! I name name!!

Please excuse Jimmy for that post. He has bursitis in his elbow and his arm sometimes makes involuntary movements.

I used to love the Looney Tunes bit where a villainous character (Daffy Duck, Wyle E. Coyote, Yosemite Sam, etc) would rig a piano to explode when a certain key was struck, but the targeted victim would always skip over the trigger key sounding an off-color note.... then the villan would run over to show them how it should be played, triggering the explosion.

Not a theme song... but worthy of mention.
