Dogtanian and Mr. Ed Speaking of insanely addictive theme songs, will Willy Fog and Cities of Gold make an appearance?


If Cities of Gold pops up I'll be dismayed if Ulysses 31 doesn't make an appearance as well .

I used to love Dogtanian .


That is a great show. i scored it a while back and pretty much watched it all it in two days with my 3 year old son, who thought it was class. In your face Mr. Tumble


Heh nice one. I've been thinking of buying it myself (as well as Mysterious Cities of Gold, Dungeons & Dragons and He-Man) but between The Muppets (including Muppet Babies), Labyrinth, the original Tom & Jerry series and Batman: The Animated Series I'm probably forcing more than enough of my childhood onto my children as it is .

Is there anyone more nostalgic than a child of the 80's I wonder?

There's no harm trying to get your children hip to some old shows, they'll waste no time telling you it's shit

For a brief time my wee man used to enjoy watching the batman TV series with me when it was on ITV4. I was so proud!

Love all the ones you've mentioned, but do you remember the children's drama about the boy who sold his laugh. Think it was a dubbed German production. It was amazing

I'd love to see it again. I don't know if it's because i was young and i'm looking back full of nostalgia, but these shows seemed so god damn EPIC.

You mean The Legend of Tim Tyler? I vaguely remember it.

The 80's and early 90's was a golden age for kids TV. As well as the aforementioned titles you had Thundercats, M*A*S*K, Knightmare, T-Bag, Chish 'n' Fips, Button Moon, Junior Kickstart, The Raccoons, Galaxy High, Captain N, Captain Planet, Gummi Bears, Why Don't You, Round the Bend, Ducktales and loads more awesome telly.

sugar sweet, i'll chase that up now i know the name, and as for T-Bag, what a show. Has anyone seen the deleted episode of Captain Planet saves Belfast, the accents are really funny and end up quite Indian sounding

Wait and see! But I'm being reminded of so many shows that I completely forgot about I think it;d be quite easy to do this list just for kids shows.

I've spent the last hour or so listening to theme tunes from 80's kids shows

I'm expecting Muppet Babies to feature highly, the intro for that is amazing.

Nope.

You really should get Dungeons and Dragons at the very least. I have the lot of them and that show is still awesome. The only problem is the lack of ending due to cancellation but it holds up. I have a soft spot for He-Man (I have some of them too) but it gets a lot of flack these days.

Mysterious Cities Of Gold is one I actually don't remember much, I must have been watching whatever was on CITV at the same time (probably Count Duckula or Danger Mouse, both of which are still cheesy fun but they were supposed to be).

Yeah, the lack of a final episode is pretty much what's been holding me back from buying it for years. And fuck the naysayers, He-Man was awesome.

It wouldn't have been either of those two because I used to watch them as well.

Ha ha, same here. I'll sometimes see another programme with an ex member of cast from Spatz and think about it, I nearly always end up thinking about Johnny Briggs then (cos Johnny Briggs' sister was in the early episodes of Spatz) and then I get the theme tune for Johnny Briggs stuck in my head.

Much like now .

Am I imagining this, or did Trevor and Simon have a sci-fi/mystery show as well as their comical stuff?

I really seem to remember something they did where they played a couple of mysterious characters hunting down certain people who all shared the same birthday.

Or did I dream this?

92. Zorro


"Out of the night, when the full moon is bright, comes a horseman known as Zorro"

Great song and I always loved the lightning bolt forming the letter Z. The show was more fun than the Antonio Banderas films.

91. Top Cat


"Top Cat! The most effectual Top Cat!"

I was surprised to learn a few years ago that there were only ever 30 episodes of Top Cat made. I dread to think what the recent film is like. Anyway, love this opening.

I was surprised to learn a few years ago that there were only ever 30 episodes of Top Cat made. I dread to think what the recent film is like.


It was actually quite rare for a Hanna-Barbera show to last more than around 30 shows. The exceptions are Scooby Doo (though the original show, Where Are You only had 41 eps), Yogi Bear (original show had 33 eps) and The Flintstones (the original show had over 100 eps) as those carried on as a franchise, spawning load of spin-offs and the like. But a lot of the shows people remember only had a handful of episodes between them. Hong Kong Phooey (16 eps), Wacky Races (17 eps), Jonny Quest (26), Banana Splits (31), Dastardly and Muttley In Their Flying Machines (17) are examples. Only The Smurfs really breaks the trend with over 200 episodes produced.

Ok, I have had flack for this before but despite being a huge Hanna-Barbera fan, I was never too fond of Top Cat. Yet I loved Bilko. I have grown to appreciate the show more now, watching it as an adult, but as a kid I was more into the H-B action or 'mystery' shows. The theme is awesome, though. And the new movie is an abomination.

See what you have started, Gimli?

I'd just like to add that I would love this list but I can't really look in this thread - I've tried twice and then it's taken hours to get the bloody tunes out of my head. Spider-man goes then the brilliant Top Cat (@Shifty) pops in.

I shall expect to see Red Dwarf. Or do end titles not count in this one?

I think the opening credits of Red Dwarf were better than the end because

1. They captured a great sense of isolation and loneliness.

2. They didn't have that godawful song.
