If you don't think i'm nuts yet, you must still be a child inside somewhere (like myself).

Music is everywhere, and theme music is just as influencial as songs on records (some more than others).

I never got tired of this one:


And this is from my favorite show when i was 4:

<sniff>where's the happy tears smile already?</sniff>

My mother wouldn't let me watch this when i was 4; so i went to my friend's place to watch it. I bought the full disc set when it came out on DVD. I would play this theme live on stage:


I feel sorry for the younger peeps in here. They didn't get to see 80's cartoons. They all seem to be on YT though.

Notma I am loving your work on Ulysses what a show. I just had a flashback of being 8 munching on a 10p mixup.

I add :




The outro really but what a show: (AKA Yakety Sax)

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know", Alice answered. "Then", said the cat, "It doesn't matter.”

I'd buy THAT for a dollar!

I don't know what's cooler... Kit? or the theme to Knightrider?

And Lion-O was the original pimp: "Thundercats, Thundercats, Thundercats... HO!" he said as his magic sword got longer lulz! And i think Cheetara may be somewhat responsible for my fetish of freckles. That theme is seriously rocking!

I saw Ullyses when i was a pre-schooler.

These are awesome memories. And heres another:

The Gonk was originally used for advertisement and tv shows, but George A. Romero made it famous in his movie "Dawn of the Dead". So even the cheesiest themes can get their break when least expected.

The war on terrorism didn't start in 2001, it stated in 1985.



This is probably how W. heard the theme whenever he was strung out on coke:

Crashing through the sky, comes a fearful cry... Allah! (Allah!) Allah! (Allah!)
Armies of the night, Islam taking flight! Allah! (Allah!) Allah! (Allah!)
No where to run, No where to hide
Panic spreading far and wide
Who can turn the tide?

G.I. Joe! A real Ameriacan hero!

No wonder we never saw Cobra Commander's face before he was horribly disfigured. I bet it was Osama Bin Ladden!
