Battle of the theme songs.

A couple of nights ago Matt and I were watching Voltron, yes that Voltron. Basically the cartoon version of Power Rangers (I'm convinced Power Rangers creators stole the idea from that show, but whatever, moving on). Well when the show was over we started debating theme songs and show openings. I think the Voltron theme song is so-so whereas Matt thinks it's AWESOME. So now I bring the debate to the masses, what do you all think?

Voltron's theme song:


I personally loooooove the Jem theme song:


And who could forget Duck Tales:


And was I the only person who watched James Bond Jr.?


And who can deny the awesomeness of Ninja Turtles:


No one, that's who.

So really, is Voltron the best one evah? Or does Jem just beat them all? What do you think???


hope you have a fabulous weekend!



happy friday!

OMG, they totally stole the Voltron idea for Power Rangers. And the Jem theme song was my song. I still know all of it. And duck tales! Amazing! Oooh, I also love the tale spin theme song.

First off Voltron isn't a theme song. As much as I loved that show it was just some dude talking.

TMNT is the OJ Simpson of cartoon theme songs.

Wait, I meant Michael Jordan.

rialeilani said...

Oh Duck Tales! I loved that cartoon!

Lauren said...

What about Darkwing Duck? So catchy! I think Duck Tales wins in my book, but second place? Jem. Definitely Jem. She is, in fact, truly outrageous.

Douchegirl said...

I'm gonna go with the TMNT, but my favorite theme song ever was... wait for it.. Dexter's Lab. LOVED it!

Laurie said...

rebecca said...

Amanda. said...

My vote is for Jem. Obviously.
She's like the freaking best.
Her earrings light up.
And um...pink hair? L.O.V.E.

Her Holograms weren't half
bad, either!

TaraMetBlog said...

ahh too many to choose from. I was going to say Jem but then I loved singing along to Duck Tales (woo who!) and then turtle power! ahhh I think i'm going to go with Duck Tales, it gets caught in the head, but Jem gets points for being more like a real song.

kay* said...

OMG LMAO this is sooo funny. Duck Tales and TMNT are awesome...but what about the chipmunks and care bears.."just do the care bear count down 5 4 3 2 1!"? oh my gosh...totally aging myself lol.

Missy said...

"Bond. James Bond. Junior." That's a major flashback!

Can't go past TMNT. Ooh or Animaniacs. Remember that?

Wickedly Scarlett said...

Jem FTW!! I mean, come on! She's outrageous! Truly, truly, truly outrageous!

Danz said...

I used to LOVE Duck Tales and TMNT! I thought they were so fun and cool!

Shelley said...

TMNT, Ghost Busters, Captain Planet, Duck Tails, Darkwing Duck... and even though the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog didn't have a good theme song, it was still an awesome show!

Kim Thomas said...

Unfortunately JEM and TMNT video is no longer available but I have to say that I loved TMNT song! Jem is hard to beat though.

Julie Q said...

Sarah Marie said...

Oh man- you are so awesome! Thanks for posting all of these theme songs- there's nothing like a bunch of cartoon theme songs from the 80s (? right?) to get your monday morning started right. Hmm. they're all so good! Jem is great, of course but I kinda like the Turtles' theme song too!

mcgee said...

i'm going with duck tales. but if you had the gummibears theme song as an option, i would've totally chosen that one. bouncing here and there and everywherrrree...

um...yeah.
