    ...

    I loved John Barry's music; and the show.

    Interesting fact: I remember Roger Moore saying that the pictures of "him" when younger, in the Intro montage, are actually of his son.
    His former wife destroyed all early photos of Sir Roger.

    I love the way they play with the theme song. The Bollywood version was just awesome!

    Agreed, a hands down winner.

    Loved The Addams Family, Munsters and Gilligan's Island theme songs, along with:

    Quantum Leap

    (My kids also loved this show - one DD skated to this song)

    Conjunction Junction reminded me of the ice skating Schoolhouse Rock - "2 and 2 are 4, 4 and 4 are 8................" where she traced the numbers on the ice like the old school figures.

    http://youtu.be/nzycxJUjdWI It's pretty catchy, and I'm loving that she does the right loop in a spread eagle position

    That wasn't what I remembered at all, but it was neat.

    I forgot all about this--thanks for posting it. I didn't fall in love with figure skating until I was an adult.

    I'm with you. I always loved Rawhide.

    My sister lived in the Peter Gunn house for several years in the Hollywood Hills. Great house - especially on the inside.

    Whoever added Beauty and the Beast - I like that one too.

    Here is my offering for the day -

    Law and Order - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS9oNBJEtNU

    One of my local stations is showing the original episodes with Michael Moriarty on Saturday evenings. I'm enjoying them.

    I never even knew this series (The Persuaders) existed--wonderful theme.

    There was a British series that ran on PBS that was several years old when I first saw it but I was hooked anyway. It was called "The Sandbaggers" about the good old bad old days during the Cold War. Here's the theme:

    I'm really surprised nobody mentioned two of my all-time favorites

    The Cheers song [Everybody knows your name]

    and the theme from Moonlighting - probably one of the best TV themes ever - but then I love Al Jarreau.

    My kids loved the handshake and saying Nanu Nanu although they weren't even thought of when the show was aired.
