This time around I’m going down memory lane all the way to the sixties. The following are some of my favorite TV shows from that time with pretty memorable intro, the ones that make you feel warm and fuzzy remembering the good old days. They are listed in chronological order.
The Saint – original theme, Edwin Astley (1962)
Sleek, suave Roger Moore in an epic role! I’ve always liked him better as Simon Templar (he’s not my favorite James Bond).
The Addams Family – original theme, Vic Mizzy (1964)
Fencing, rose pruning, arm wrestling with Thing, watching Uncle Fester with a lightbulb in his mouth… such a fun family to be around! All this introduced by a very catchy tune.
I Dream of Jeannie – original theme, Hugo Montenegro (1965)
Light hearted and funny adventures of a genie let out of the bottle with a nice cartoon intro and happy theme.
Star Trek – Original Series theme, Alexander Courage (1966)
Who hasn’t dreamt to boldly go where no one has gone before? To be part of the crew of the Enterprise (but not a red shirt!) and visit strange worlds… Good times!
Batman – original theme, Neal Hefti (1966)
Well, I don’t think that this one needs any introduction: NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA Batman!!!
