Much of the Renaissance seemed to be based on the idea that some or all of these things were inseparable.

Yes, but said movement also pre-dated the otherwise limited early era of TV title sequences by several hundred years. wink.gif I meant it's a relatively new thang to telly.

Pfft, ludicrous. Surely they must have had opening titles for plays?

My point was just about aesthetics in general, and for me to refer to the Renaissance. Without my degree to offer structure, I need to get my history where I can these days.

He only mentioned The Renaissance in a desperate attempt to keep the thread on-topic.

Oh, and let's not forget the one and only: Danger Mouse!

We were singing the Danger Mouse theme to my mother last night in the middle of a restaurant.
It was part of an effort to remind her of who David Jason is.


Also - on the topic of the Cheers theme - has anyone ever actually read (or listened to) the other verses of that song which weren't on the tv show?
That song has some really bizarre lyrics.

Check out this gem of a verse:
Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee's dead;
The morning's looking bright;
And your shrink ran off to Europe,
And didn't even write;
And your husband wants to be a girl;


Aussie comedy group Tripod used to sing the whole song occasionally - and in the chorus they changed the words to:
You wanna go where people write lyrics that are insane...

Has anyone mentioned Roger Ramjet? Whose name I have just realised is teh filth. Oh I could go for hours about cartoon themes. But haven't we had cartoon theme discussions before? Am I confusing my forums? Postman Pat, Animaniacs, Henry's Cat, Gumby, Superted, Thomas, etc etc. Ah, to be 21 10 again.

ETA: Don't look for 'cartoon themes' on youtube. You will lose hours from your life.
ETA2: This may be my favourite opening sequence ever.

Some guy on Edgar's MySpace blog was saying that his Dad created that show.

Ooo! I forgot The Tripods, which also had pretty good closing credits as well.

Happiest theme tune ever?

Obviously 'Arthur'!

I've just listened to it now and I'm gayly happy!

Best opening credits, obviously, 'The Sopranos'.

I voted for 'Doctor Who' in the poll, to be honest I don't remember most of them, I was born in the eighties (the eighties).

It had a good opening theme though. That often confuses people into thinking things are any good. Look at the amount of people who think Dogtanian was anything other than worthless shite.

A good theme is only part of making a good credit sequence. Starsky & Hutch - fantastic theme, but just clips of episodes.

After Erin Grey, the opening credits were pretty much the best thing about Buck Rogers.

They should've used that bit for the Fraiser spin-off.

The theme is outstanding & that mixed with the opening visuals all set the tone beautifully. It fits perfectly with the tacky charm of Buck as a series.
