Ultimate 1980s Cartoon Themes

OK, in honor of President’s Day here in the US, I’ve decided to do something unprecedented: I am finding my Top 10 80s Child Cartoon theme songs (Note: not all of these shows aired exclusively in the 1980s, but they are shows “children of the ’80s” will always cherish).  Also, please note, this is a personal list, so girly favorites may not be included.  Feel free to ream me out about how My Little Pony had the best theme.  Confession: Five-year-old me had quite a crush on Jem:

Ok, now on with the list!

Wife induces labor so husband can go to Bears game
Posted: Sunday January 21, 2007 4:01PM; Updated: Sunday January 21, 2007 4:01PM

PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) — Nine months pregnant and married to a fervent Bears fan with tickets to Sunday’s NFC Championship game, Colleen Pavelka didn’t want to risk going into labor during the game against the New Orleans Saints.

Due to give birth on Monday, Pavelka’s doctor told her Friday she could induce labor early. She opted for the Friday delivery.

“I thought, how could [Mark] miss this one opportunity that he might never have again in his life?” said Pavelka, 28, from the southwestern Chicago suburb of Homer Glen.

At 10:45 p.m. Friday, Mark Patrick Pavelka was born at Palos Community Hospital after close to six hours of labor.

While her husband watched the Bears play the New Orleans Saints at Soldier Field Sunday, Colleen planned to watch in the hospital with the baby wrapped in a Bears blanket — a Christmas gift from his grandmother.

The couple named Mark after his father, who wore a “Monsters of the Midway” shirt during the delivery.

“If he wasn’t born by Sunday and the Bears won, I would have named him Rex,” after Bears quarterback Rex Grossman, joked Mark Pavelka, 28.

Mark is the couple’s second son.
