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!
– Inspector Gadget
– Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling
– Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
#10 (tie) – Dinosaucers and Silverhawks (forgotten favorite)
#9 – Muppet Babies (Muppets in any form are top-notch)
#8 – He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
#7 (tie) – Tiny Toons Adventures and Animaniacs
#6 (tie) – The Snorks and The Smurfs
#5 – Fat Albert
#4 (tie) – Ducktales and Darkwing Duck (When there’s trouble, just call D-W!)
#3 (tie) – G.I. Joe and Transformers
#2 – Thundercats
#1 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (as if there was any doubt!)
Let the debate begin!
