    Let's have a little fun here! Anybody up for sharing their favorite television intros. Max 2 per person ;)

    I'm starting with Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomenss. The theme song makes me giggle every time and the best part is at 00:34

    The next video is my favorite for now. It's the Power Rangers: Super Samurai intro. The theme is a remix of "Go Go Power Rangers" but it's done so well. The visuals are very colorful and really shows why Power Rangers shines in HD

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    This brings back memories of after-school TV. I used to rock out to this while doing my homework before dinner.

    Tom Waits sang the intro to the second series of the Wire so I have to include that on principle



    All this said I think I just selected theme tunes that amuse me. Screenwipe had an interesting aside in one episode about the decline of the intro sequence (actual intro to so much title card) but I can only find the one on TV show end credits instead.

    1) Simpsons - Prolly the most well known (and best) intro ever made and coz of the numerous couch gags, it made it worth watching everytime.
    2) Fresh prince of bel air - One of the best intro songs to a show ever made.
    3) Batman - Pow! Whack! Zonk! Classic.

    Some honorable mentions:
    - Spongebob (Song)
    - The A team (Song)
    - poddington peas (Song)
    - Star Trek (voiceover)
    - Dexter (visuals)

    Along with Penny Crayon this probably wants to be the next entry in my what were they smoking cartoons thread but if we are doing cartoons now
    Poddington peas - the amount of pea puns in the opening credits alone should instantly endear it to many on this site.

    Edit- might as well have Penny Crayon as well
