Favorite TV Theme Songs

Before the days when cool pop songs popped up during TV episodes, catchy ditties and impossible-to-forget musical themes introduced our favorite shows — from the scary notes that set the tone for "Twilight Zone," to the silly song that created the mood for "The Munsters.” (Don't know about you, but I can't forget that wacky song about "identical cousins" from the Patty Duke Show. Is that even possible??!!!)

If haven't already, check out our 10 Top TV Theme Songs, featuring video clips so you can sing along. Then vote for your favorite in the poll below (you'll have to be logged in) and join the discussion. Which great theme songs did we leave off our list? Which songs have stuck with you and why?

Maybe we can all work on word equivalents for our most-treasured musical memories - like buh-duh-bum-buh-duh-bum-buh-duh-bum-buh-duh-bum-buh-duh-BUM-BUM  — can you tell which theme song that is?

Re: Favorite TV Theme Songs

One of the earliest I can remember as a kid was the "I Love Lucy" theme song.  Even little kids today know they're going to see "Lucy" when they hear that music. There are words to it, and Ricky sings it at least once in the series to Lucy.
My two most favorites are: CHEERS and GOLDEN GIRLS.

What about the original theme song to the Show Family Matters?  It was Louis Armstrong singing   What a Wonderful World.
and another farvorite is Henry Mancini directing the Theme Song from Newhart.
