Default TV shows that were/are based on movies

how many shows that were/are based on movies, use/used the same theme song from the movie? The ones I can think of are:
  • THE ODD COUPLE
  • MASH
  • 9 to 5

I always thought Happy Days was based loosely on American Graffitti, I may
be wrong.

I think Mork and Mindy was technically a spinoff of Happy Days--Robin Williams appeared in that character, but Pam Dawber was not involved.

HAPPY DAYS was spun off of a segment on LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE that aired in 1971. AMERICAN GRAFFITI came out in 1974.

a bit of trivia: AARON SPELLING wanted Tom Bosley for CHARLIES ANGELS, but when he got David Doyle instead, he named the character "Bosley".

Wasn't Alias Smith and Jones loosely based on the movie "Butch Cassidy and
the Sundance Kid"?

no it wasn't; you're probably confused by the fact that Columbia Pictures; whose television "arm" was Screen Gems where BEWITCHED and a lot of other shows were made; made 2 movies with premises that were similar. "Bell, Book and Candle" was one; and I forget the name of the other one.

Harry & the Hendersons
Karate Kid - Cobra Kai
Look Who’s Talking - not sure if the show was called that, it may have been something like “Baby Talk,” but I’m pretty sure Bruce Willis still did the voice.
Friday the 13th - Freddy’s Nightmare
Star gate - or was that vice versa?
Friday the 13th - not exactly the same, but same name and horror related
Indiana Jones - Young Indiana Jones Chronciles

If we were doing movies into cartoons there would be a lot more...
