    ok, another one that didn't air with lyrics, but you might just get it anyway...

    "Heroes, Heroes, fighting men of war,
    Sons of all the Heroes from the war before."

    Since it's one of my all-time favorites, and I knew it right away:
    Hogan's Heroes

    All the on-line listings show it as "husky men of war", though.




    "______ are on the move,
    ______ are loose,
    Feel the magic, hear the roar,
    ______ are loose."

    That's easy-Charmed. I researched that one when I started playing here.

    This one is from my childhood!

    "There's a prehistoric monster, who came from outer space
    Created by the Martians to destroy the human race
    The FBI is helpless, he's 20 stories tall
    What can we do, who can we call?"

    I had to look that one up just to get this thread started again... 8 Man.

    Here's an easy one for the more grey-haired among us:

    "On November thirteenth Felix Unger was asked to remove himself from his place of residence. That request came from his wife."

    Aw, now, does a voice-over narration really count as a 'theme'?

    The actual theme was written by Neal Hefti for the movie that preceded the series. A line from the actual theme...

    "When one says 'no', it's 'yes''
    More or less ..."

    True, but the real lyrics never aired. Makaiguy, you get to pick the next theme...

    Nah.. I never really gave the answer, so somebody else could still jump in. But since we've had another poser posted, I guess for completeness I'll mention that the Felix Unger quote was The Odd Couple.

    Couldn't get the above one without looking it up, so I'll let

    "Every time I turn around.. I see the face that turns my world around"

    .. continue to ride.

    BTW - the sources I found indicated it was "I see the GIRL that turns my world around". This wasn't a show I every watched, so I'll let somebody shorter in the tooth that has a chance to actually remember it pick up this one...

    Guess this one's stalled out.

    "Every time I turn around.. I see the girl that turns my world around" is from Punky Brewster

    Try this one - a REAL oldie:

    "Here we are, back with you again.
    Yes by-gum, and yes by-golly"

    They got the whole thing backwards. They started the video in the famous intersection where the hat went in the air (7th and Nicollett in front of Dayton's Department Store). At least they got the Crystal Court restaurant balcony in the proper sequence. Dayton's went away a few years back so they can't reproduce this scene again. ;) By the way, the fellow in the video with the handlebars (the bass player) now owns a fine dining restaurant in Red Wing, Mn. http://www.thenortonsrestaurant.com/

    This is the original theme, and one of my favorite "classic that matches the story" themes.

    "Lady Madonna, children at your feet.
    Wonder how you manage to make ends meet."

    wow, when I read that I saw a vision of Guy Williams riding a horse, wearing a black mask, cutting Z's into things with a rapier. I loved that show.

    now i have one, hope it hasn't been used,

    "*** ***** ****, its about space, about strangest people in a strangest place"

    It's time to put on makeup. It's time to light the lights....
