Best 80s Cartoons Theme Song Openings

Yesterday I discussed my favorite movie soundtrack of all time.  I also mentioned my love for that soundtrack back in 2017 when I listed my 5 favorite albums of all time.  The 80s were loaded with great bands and killer guitar riffs.

Check out this intro to the 1980s cartoon King Arthur and Knights of Justice on YouTube

Bryan Reynolds' rookie season in 2019 was really good and he instantly became one of my favorite current Pirates players.  I went out and picked up a few cards here and there of his, especially any early cards that were cheap.

These Panini Stars and Stripes Crusade cards represent my latest rainbow attempt.
The Crusade background ties in very nicely with the King Arthur cartoon.

My favorite intro though is Thundercats

Here is a Thundercats cover done by my favorite couple of cover artists Pamela RomVel and David Galardi.

What are some of your favorite cartoon intros?


  1. My favorite cartoon intro is Animaniacs. And for pure camp, all the superhero themes from Incredible Hulk And Marvel Men are awesomely cheesy.

    But my favorite cartoon SONGS are the Schoolhouse Rock classics.

  2. Ducktales is the first one that pops into my head. Super catchy.

  3. Definitely Thundercats. Also love the ninja turtles theme, ghostbusters theme, and Rescue Rangers (although that might have 90s?).

  4. Child of the '70s, so favorites are Scooby Doo, Land of the Lost, Josie and the Pussycats ("Long Tails and Ears for Hats!"), and Hey, Hey, Hey, It's Fat Albert!

  5. M.A.S.K., Starblazers, and one of the catchiest tunes was the Gummi Bears cartoon intro.
