What are some of your favorite TV themes from way back when?

For me, there are plenty of good ones, but I just recently rediscovered the awesomeness of the theme to "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century":

        M*A*S*H* had the greatest intro theme. Transformers, Thundercats, MST3K, and Night Court had good intro themes too.

          Cheers and Golden Girls are a couple that bring back 80's memories for me.

            I always liked the themes from Taxi and Mary Tyler Moore.

            There are also a bunch of great old anime theme songs, but I won't get into that here, seeing as how nobody will know what I'm talking about anyway. :P

                  The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour theme song is one of my favorites.

                            WKRP I've always loved and it takes me back to my childhood watching it in syndication on CBC.

                                Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, hands down. Or maybe Alvin and the Chipmunks, or Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers or something.

                                      One theme I can't forget is the one for China Beach.
                                      I don't think I evn liked it but for some reason it pops into my head and I can see the helicopter fly over the beach.
