Well the obvious choice is 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'. Catchy, cool, cheery.. Some other words you mentioned.

I also love 'Family Guy'. Can't help but sing along to it all of the time.

'Only Fools and Horses' is another one I think deserves a mention. Every British person should know it.

Oh and I am a huge fan of 'Bottom'. I know it's not on any more but I have them all on DVD. I am not much of a saxophone lover but got to love it for the show. It stands out and obviously what they're doing during the intro makes it even better.

I keep editing this because I think of more to add lol.

How could I forget about 'The Mighty Boosh'. LOVE the intro. So short but really gets me excited to watch the show. Just so original.

Here are my favorites...

YouTube - X-files, opening (original)

That song is a classic. I also remember this intro scaring me as a little kid. Haha.

YouTube - Rescue Me - INTRO

Great song. I actually have it on my iPod. This intro always gets me excited to watch the episode. I rarely skip it.

YouTube - FX Justified intro

Another song I have on my iPod. Gangsta Grass, how could I not like it? Haha.

YouTube - The sopranos intro

Eh, now I miss The Sopranos. Ha.

YouTube - Californication Intro, beautiful!

I like the newer one better, but couldn't it.

YouTube - The Office Season 7 Intro

Catchy little tune.

YouTube - Dexter: Morning Routine

I think this is one of the better ones for current shows.

YouTube - Scrubs Intro

Short & sweet.


I also wanted to post up a recent Bones one but couldn't find it. Temperance, Cam & Angela all in a 30 second clip with music? Oh yes. :lol:

Oh, and this one makes me laugh...


I put it in spoilers because it's definitely not G rated. Haha.

I love the Sopranos theme song.

WKRP in Cincinnati - I sang this at the top of my lungs when we drove through Cincinnati last week and my daughter was yelling at me - "aaaaugh! Mom you're making me tired!!" lol

Love the Dexter theme tune - and not just for the catchy music - the actual sequence of activity is pretty cool, although eating steak for breakfast is a bit much for me.

And the Only Fools theme is brilliant Bliss - I thought you might mention it ;)

A few themes from me include:

Dr Who: All warpy and that. Reminds me of a Muse track for some reason.
YouTube - Doctor Who Theme Tune 1963-1969 by Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire

Scooby Doo: Probably the catchiest thing I've ever heard. I actually hum it at random sometimes - I know...
YouTube - Scooby Doo Theme Song

Rising Damp is another likable opening, via clunky music only.
YouTube - RISING DAMP PIANO THEME TUNE

And as for nostalgia, I can't help but like this:
YouTube - ZZZAP!
