15 Theme Songs That You Absolutely Still Have Stuck In Your Head

Watching TV after school or on Saturday mornings was pretty much the highlight of your week. Finding that show that just captivated you completely was the best feeling in the world. The shows will probably stick out in your memory forever, especially the theme song.

They always did such an amazing job making songs that could just embed themselves deep in your mind and then latch on as if they are some kind of melody leech. See how many you remember! There is something for everyone, see if you can find the shows from your childhood below!

1. Flintstones

You knew you were about to have a Yabbadabbado time any time this song started to play. It doesn't matter how many years it's been since you saw this show last, you know each and every word, I absolutely guarantee it.

2. The Jetsons

Take a trip with the most fantastic family of the future and see what our life will be like when we all have flying cars and robot housekeepers. Seems pretty great right?

3. Sesame Street

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street? Classic, simple, iconic, and absolutely everlasting.

4. Reading Rainbow

You can be anything, if you take a look in a book! The classic show ran for years and years, each and every one brought you just so much joy.

5. DuckTales

So far the new version of DuckTales looks pretty great, but it's hard to believe that anything will ever beat the original right?

6. Inspector Gadget

Inspector Gadget might have been pretty useless, but his theme song was pretty awesome. In all honesty the theme song should have been more about Penny and Brain since we all know they were the real brains behind the whole operation.

7. Animaniacs

It was absolutely one of the best cartoons ever and their song was zany to the max. And those are the facts.

There are a lot more amazing theme songs that you will absolutely remember, including a clown, some mice, and the star of a meme! Check out the next page and see if which of your favorites you still remember!

8. The Big Comfy Couch

Get ready to clown around with one of the only acceptable times clowns were in popular media. Shes probably the only clown that didn't terrify the majority of people, not to mention her stretch was the most interactive thing a TV show would do.

9. Fraggle Rock

Who doesn't want to just dance their cares away? It would make life so much easier wouldn't it? At least they did a nice remaster of this so we can re-watch it clearly!

10. Care Bears

All you had to do was send a wish out in the dark and hopefully the Care Bears would be there for you. How badly did we all wish that this were true? Think you still remember their names? Test your skills with this quiz and see how good your memory really is.

11. The Muppet Show

It's ALWAYS time to play the music and light the lights. The show is the best. There is no one better than Jim Hensen, he's a creative genius and his work still lives on today.

12. Arthur

Open up your eyes, and open up your ears because watching this theme song will make you feel like you are jumping back into your childhood. Arthur was a lot more than a clenched fist meme, he was one of the greats that you should absolutely revisit the show to get all those wonderful nostalgic feelings.

13. Magic School Bus

Climb on the magic school bus and learn everything you missed in school. It was always so much more fun to learn from Miss Frizzle anyway, she was just the best.

14. Pinky And The Brain

Narf! They wanted nothing more than to take over the world, but alas, it just wasn't going to happen. You have to give them points for persistence though! They did manage to break out of their small part on Animaniacs and get their own show though, so at least there's that!

15. Wishbone

I may know more classic stories because of Wishbone than I do from actually reading them... With Wishbone on the trail, you will always learn exactly what's the story!
