Top 15 Children’s TV Themes
Inspired by a twitter message by a certain Mr. Darragh Doyle, where he announced the contentious notion that Fraggle Rock was the greatest theme song from a children’s TV show, I have decided to share my Top 10 15 Children’s TV Themes. Now these are a personal choice and I’m sure many of you will disagree with me. The collection reflects the fact that I was a child of both the 80’s and 90’s and have a fond affection for shows from that time.
Number 15: Pole Position
80’s synths and drums were never more effectively used.Number 14: James Bond Jr.
It’s a cartoon Bond theme!!
Number 13: Count Duckula
The creepiest of all cartoon themes.
Number 12: Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors
If Celine Dion did Cartoon themes, then this would be it.
Number 11: Danger Mouse
Short, sweet and ultimately unforgettable.
Number 10: Swat Kats
No words, just hard rock.
Number 9: The Muppet Show
No list would be complete without some Muppets.
Number 8: MASK
Unbelievably cheesy and I still sing it to this day.
Number 7: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Michaelanglo is a party dude, and so am I!
Number 6: Animaniacs
If it’s good enough for Spielberg it goes on the list.
Number 5: Thundercats
I’m not a cat person but this show and specifically this was one of my faves growing up.
Number 4: Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds
By far the longest theme on the list, but one you’ll happily sit through time and time again.
Number 3: X-Men
Not a week goes by when I don’t start humming this randomly and for absolutely no reason. Infectious stuff.
Number 2: Fraggle Rock
Sorry Darragh, almost but not quite.
Number 1: Mysterious Cities of Gold
Slow to start but magnificent once it gets going. Nothing comes close.
Batman, Chip and Dale, Ducktales, Pinky and The Brain, Sharky and George, Sonic the Hedgehog, Spiderman, Tail Spin, Taz, The Littlest Hobo, The Real Ghostbusters, Tiny Toons, Transformers, Trap Door
