Default Great Cartoon themes

Bugs Bunny and Friends has been mentioned in the forum. I also liked the opening/closing themes to Beany and Cecil, Linus the Lionhearted, and especially George of the Jungle. And Roger Ramjet.

I like the opening and closing themes for The Flintstones! I also like the opening theme for Scooby Doo Where Are You?

Well, I'm partial to the animated series/cartoons that aired when I was a kid, in the late 1980's to early 1990's, so my favorites are the themes from:

Jem and the Holograms
She-Ra: Princess of Power
The Thundercats
He-Man: Masters of the Universe
Gummi Bears

Yogi Bear
Huckleberry Hound
Magilla Gorilla

I grew up in the 80's so the obvious choices are these and it's a shame that the themes at times turned out better than the actual cartoon for some of them:

G.I.Joe A Real American Hero
He-Man & The Masters Of The Universe
Jayce & The Wheeled Warriors
Spiral Zone
The Centurions
Challenge Of The GoBots
The Super Friends (including all incarnations)

Some of my favorite cartoon themes are:

Gummi Bears
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (original cartoon)
Garfield and Friends (second theme)

"Awesome" ends in "Me".


I think not.

I barely remembered this one from when I was a real little kid. It wasn't until Youtube that I found it again.

Jonny Quest (1964-65, man did those musicians really had to work overtime composing that theme! lol!)
The Flintstones (both versions)
The Jetsons (especially its 1962-63 version)
Scooby Doo (all themes before 1979, although the one from 1984 was pretty catchy in a way)
Superfriends (all of them, especially the 1977 theme since it had that Jonny Quest-like vibe to it too!)
Josie and the Pussycats
Hong Kong Phooey (one of those shows where I liked the theme song way better than the show itself)
The Snorks (mostly the Season 2 theme! That song kicked azz! The 3rd theme was good too but it plastered over the S1 and S2 themes in syndication and cable reruns and gets old at times)
The Bugs Bunny Show ("This Is It")
G.I. Joe Real American Hero (1983-87)
Transformers 1984-88 (Especially the S2 theme, which IMO is vastly underrated of the G1 Transofrmers theme songs)
Jem and the Holograms
Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears
The Alvin Show (sure the 1983-90 Alvin and the Chipmunks are good, but this original theme song from 1961 was just as catchy and awesome, IMO).
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987-96, mainly the pre late '90s theme)
George of the Jungle
Spider-Man (mainly the 1960s and the Spiderman and His Amazing Friends theme from 1981-84)
Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers
Darkwing Duck
Tale Spin
Pinky and the Brain
Freakazoid! (Funny theme song and very underrated show!)
Superman: The Animated Series (1990s)
The Centurions
Pokemon (Especially the original 1998-99 theme song)
Teen Titans (No, not the blasphemy that is Teen Titans GO!, but the 2003-06 series' theme. Also one of the few 2000s cartoon themes and shows I loved)
Phineas and Ferb (one of the few 2010s cartoons I liked)
Inspector Gadget
Ren and Stimpy (such a catchy theme song for a '90s cartoon!)
South Park (before they hammed it up and remixed it)
King of the Hill
The Simpsons
Hey Arnold
Spongebob Squarepants (another show where I like the theme song more than the show itself these days)
