Fair warning: This is a stupid edition of “Fridays are For One Question.”
I read a Facebook status last week where someone referenced the Gummi Bears theme song. You remember it?
“Gummi bears — dancing here and there and everywhere…”
You’re welcome for that. That propelled me into a few hours of personal deliberation regarding the greatest cartoon theme song of all time. Hopefully you’re doing the same thing RIGHT NOW.

Yabba – Dabba – dooooooooooooo
Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones.
They’re the modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They’re a page right out of history.
Let’s ride with the family down the street.
Through the courtesy of Fred’s two feet.
When you’re with the Flintstones
you’ll have a yabba dabba doo time.
A dabba doo time.
You’ll have a gay old time.
I don’t know about the BEST, but the one that comes to mind is:
Duck Tales – Oooo
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
Duck Tales – Oooo
There’s a danger, look behind you
There’s a stranger, out to find you (Wha???)
What to do just grab on to some
Duck Tales – Oooo!
You can all thank me later, but a quick Google search brought up this list of Top 50 Cartoon Theme Songs of All Time
I don’t know if I agree with the picks (esp. since I hadn’t heard of some of them), but I’d vote for Flintstones or Jetsons, with Scooby-Doo coming in close behind.
Jem was truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous. I also loved the Chip and Dale’s Rescue Rangers, mostly because of the stuttering rap of “Ch-ch-ch-ch-chip and Dale’s / Res-cue Rangers.”
