Like Batman: The Animated Series and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men: The Animated Series was an awesome show that quickly became a staple of Saturday mornings for young superhero fans.
Not only is the show beloved to this day, its theme song has gained a cult following all its own. Simply awesome.
I can’t really break down the technical details of what makes the Thundercats theme song so good but I know that it works. Listening to the Thundercats theme gives you the sense that you’re about to witness something truly epic and fans of the show will know that it never disappointed. Thundercats, Ho!
Like Chip ’N’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Duck Tales had an amazing theme song. I’m fully of the belief that it’s 100% impossible to listen to this song without it getting stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
That beat is ridiculously catchy, the lyrics are great and it’s fun to sing along to. Basically, everything that makes cartoon theme songs awesome.
2. Simpsons Theme
Anything The Simpsons theme song lacks in flash or lyrics, it makes up in spades with longevity and legacy. The Simpsons is the longest running American cartoon series, sitcom and primetime series, all rolled into one oddly lovable package.
After 27 seasons, the theme song is still there and no other song could ever take its place introducing America’s favorite dysfunctional cartoon family.
What The Simpsons theme song did for its show, the Pokémon theme took to another level. And I’m not talking about any of the recent songs, given that the long-running series has had a multitude of them.
I’m talking the original. Back when there were 151 Pokémon, not 700. While the song isn’t as tenured as The Simpsons theme, it’s arguably just as popular and has a cult following of its own.
While other songs have come and gone in the world of Pokémon, absolutely none of them truly matched the power and pizazz of the original. The lyrics and presentation of that song perfectly captured what Pokémon was all about and its legacy lives on through the countless covers that can be found on YouTube and iTunes.
Obviously, there were far too many great theme songs for them all to make it onto the list! If there was one in particular that you felt deserved to be on the list, comment down below and let me hear about it!
