    ...

    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.

    One of my fav shows waaaay back in the day.
    Mork from Ork
    My kids loved the handshake and saying Nanu Nanu although they weren't even thought of when the show was aired.
