    2 years ago, before everyone loved DerrickComedy, their first few works were a series called "Alternate Theme Songs". At age 13, I found these some of the funniest things ever. Why? Well, take the intros to various 80s cartoons (and a 90s cartoon), and pair them with depressingly ironic ballads. At first I thought these were actually real. Besides, it was the 1980s, anything was possibly. It was very possible that some little-known rock artist just made tributes to some cartoons. Of course, I later found out it wasn't true, but they're still hilarious.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    A stoner-rock ballad groaning on how Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will "take your heart away".

    G.I. JOE

    An acoustic song in which Derrick's love for G.I. JOE is expressed.

    Bananas in Pajamas

    A sad, depressing song, which has lyrics addressing the depravity of the cartoon.

    Care Bears

    Short, sweet, and hilarious.

    He-Man
    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1FFi2njYxU&feature=related[/url]
    A mysterious, creepy song. Once again, the lyrics are completely irrelevant to what the viewer is seeing.

    Fraggle Rock

    A metal song in which Derrick wishes to finally let go of his cheating lover, which is apparently Fraggle Rock itself.

    There were two different versions of the "Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers" theme song; they had slightly different tunes to them both.

    Someone posted a video on Youtube of the opening credits of the new Battlestar Galactica done to the theme of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest. Surprisingly, it's very effective!

    That was some great stuff. I like the Bananas and Fraggle Rock ones best. The Care Bears one is a classic "WHAT?!" moment. Nice.
