2 more theme songs that are NOT my favorites,are the one for the "Petticoat Junction" episodes WITHOUT the late Bea Benaderet.,when June Lockhart took over.It goes like this:"There's a little hotel called the Shady Rest at the Junction..Petticoat Junction...It (singer's voice gets annoyingly high)is run by Joe(Uncle Joe)Come and be his guest at the junction.Petticoat Junction..Here's our lady MD she's as pretty as can be at the Junction.PETTICOAT JUNCTION"Yucko.I like the earlier theme used in the episodes WITH Bea Benaderet a LOT better.Another one I DO NOT like is the vocal theme (why did they change it from the instrumental themes used in earlier seasons,which I liked a LOT better)used for the final season of "That Girl".

I lot of folks seemed to really dislike the final version of the "That Girl" theme song w/ the lyrics.

Diamonds, daisies, snowflakes, That Girl!
Chestnuts, rainbows, spring time, (inserts drum beat) is thaaat girrrrrlll!
She skips a lot of treeeees
It's everything that every girl should beeeeeeee
Same ol' popcorn, white wine, that girl
kingdom, blue birds, Broadway...is that girrrrrrl!

That version?

I'm the opposite, I love that version while I'm not too buzzed over the earlier ones.

My most hated one is "Friends." The series itself is bad enough, but the theme song is worse. Second would be "Two and a Half Men." It is the same as "Friends"-- bad enough series, worse theme song.

I guess that would explain why Friends was on for 10 years, and Two and a Half Men has been on for what's it been, 7 years now?

I have to say that I got a little sick of "I'll be there for you", too. I'll watch the 1st scene, then when they go into the theme song, I change the channel.

I actually like the "Men" theme song, especially when they got Charlie, Jon & Angus lip-syncing it.

I didn't like the Rosanne song either!

Oh man, that's SO true! I have most of the DVD seasons and on EVERY show they have the theme song! I noticed on the Joan of Arcadia Season 1 DVD, the theme song (which I love by the way!) is only on the first episode. That Full House song does get annoying after hearing it 20 or so times; even the chopped up versions!

Other ones I never cared for are Growing Pains and Family Ties, but I loved both shows!

I liked the theme when it was just instrumental. When lyrics were added, I couldn't listen to it anymore.

Hopefully, when the show has been on for a few years, they'll decide to ditch the intro and just start showing the opening credits during the first scene.

If the "Two and a Half Men" opening theme floats your boat, it's all good. What you do about "Friends" is something that I would do if I enjoyed the series, which, of course, I, for one, do not. You don't happen to have any of the DVD releases of that series, do you? The reason I ask that is that, if you had the DVD releases, when you heard the first bars of that song, you could probably skip ahead to the next scene (unless I'm mistaken). Is that true?

Good Times. Temporary layoffs, easy credit ripoffs and scratchin' n' surviving are NOT "Good Times".

I'd stopped watching Happy Days a long time ago, and never even knew that version existed... that version definitely belongs in the pantheon of bad TV theme song performances... wow, was that ever bad!!
Amen to Happy Days final season. What were they thinking? They should have left well enough alone. Also, although it wasn't bad, there was no need to change the Diff'rent STrokes theme for the final season, either.

Not necessarily DISLIKE, but the second season variation of the Muppet Babies end music makes me rather sad because it retained the music (VERY 80s music) from a practically non-existent show (Little Muppet Monsters) at the end. It disturbs me slightly to think that I've been hearing a montage of a theme to a show that basically did not exist for 20+ years. I did catch the pilot for LMM on YouTube and I thought it was rather weird for a kids' show. No wonder it didn't work out.
