    I like the Hey Arnold jazzy theme song. Angry Beavers had a fun one. Ren and Stimpy’s was jamming. South Parks will go on forever.

    I get Disney’s Gummi Bears song in my head at least once a week since I was 6 or however old I was when it was aired on Saturdays.

    I’ve got lots of Cartoon Theme Songs I already know. It’s a toss-up between The Snorks and Jabberjaw. Both of these cartoons take place underwater. I know the words to the Snorks theme but I can’t remember the words to the Jabberjaw theme song. Does anyone know the Jabberjaw theme song?

    some of the music that accompanied Gargamel in the original Smurfs tv show. I had to google but think it was inspired partly by Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherezade.

    I get a kick out of listening to some classical music and then the light bulb goes off in my head, The Smurfs! hahaha
