    Simple rules... give a line from a TV theme song, and the next person must give the name of the show. This entitles him or her to provide the next line. I'll start:

    Car 54, Where Are You (had to look it up, as I don't know the song, though)...

    Easy one: Believe it or not, I'm walking on air...

    (maybe) harder one: ...That suicide is painless, it brings on many changes, and I can take or leave it if I please.

    ...I think I know the lyrics in question, but did they ever air? I always think of that theme being instrumental.

    Great minds... That's not fair. That song was an instrumental on the series, "Bonanza" ;)

    This one's way too easy:

    How will you make it on your own?
    Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?

    I don't recognize those lyrics from the Banana Splits.

    I only recall bits and pieces but it was something like - "One banana, two banana, three banana, four, > forget the exact next part< The banana Split Show. Over hills and valleys the banana buggies go, > forget the next part too < La la la la luh la la, la la la la luh la la

    Wow, do you need to be old(er) to participate in this thread? :lol: I don't know any of these to save my life!

    Let me try this:

    In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune.

    Stuart's right, that one never aired with the lyrics, but the answer is "Star Trek"


    Soooooo, How's about:


    "Baby, if you every wondered,
    Wondered whatever happened to me.
    I'm livin' on the air in................"
