    Default TV Theme Music - whatís the best ever?

    Iím in the U.K. and I love TV theme tunes which, in general, I feel are very underrated. I have so many collected and stored on CD and in iTunes. (I have a pretty large music collection of all genres collected over the last 60 years - somewhere in the region of 1,700 albums and many more singles, cassettes and mp3ís. My family think Iím bonkers! lol)

    What is YOUR fave TV theme tune and why?

    Iíll love looking up the ones you mention Iíve never heard of.

    Thanks.
    Luv n stuff, Dave

    The show only lasted one year 1964-1965 for a total of 26 episodes. (Maybe only in the USA?) As a young boy at the time, the show really piqued a sense of wonder, excitement and adventure in me. Jonny Quest was a boy whose father was a scientist and he didn't attend school like a normal child would but instead he got to travel all over the world and found himself in a lot of great adventures. The show was really well done and I think it's still a lot of fun to watch. I think they tried to bring him back many years later after the original but it just wasn't the same. I don't know why the original only got one year. I think its quality deserved a longer run.

    I love TV theme songs too. I don't have a favorite, but these are theme songs I really like: Cheers-Where Everybody Knows Your Name, M*A*S*H-Suicide is Painless, Mickey Mouse Club March, Secret Agent Man, Gilligan's Island, Game of Thrones intro and the Big Bang Theory.

    This is the theme song from The Medic - Blue Star, from 1955. I'd bet that nobody else would pick this song!

    Found it while viewing videos of Japanese surf bands; it's also been recorded by the Shadows & Ventures.

    Some great suggestions there people. I've had fun listening to them - some of which I'd never previously heard of here in the UK.

    In my original post I neglected to mention MINE lol.

    Two of my favourites are the classic theme from 'Thunderbirds':




    and a British adventure series from the 70's/80's called 'The Professionals':
