I added a new Mystery Theme to MyThemes.TV...good luck trying to guess it. June's Mystery Theme was I MARRIED DORA, and Scott Bernhart was the first to submit a correct guess. Three other theme-o-philes submitted correct guesses as well.
I also added three new themes; all of them are pretty annoying in my opinion, each in their own way:
The theme to 1966's SHANE, based on Victor Young's beautiful score to the 1953 hit film of the same name, would be just fine if it weren't for Christopher Shea's incessant call of "Shane! Shane!" throughout the entire opening. Shea, by the way, was the voice of Linus Van Pelt in the first set of "Peanuts" holiday specials during the 1960s. SHANE also marked the first starring role for the late David Carradine (son of legendary character actor John Carradine). Jill Ireland also starred on the series. The western did not do well, and it was six years before Carradine had another starring role in a series, 1972's KUNG FU.
1990's FERRIS BUELLER was NBC's feeble attempt to capitalize on the 1986 hit movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" starring Matthew Broderick. Charlie Schlatter played Bueller in this short-lived sitcom, and Jennifer Anniston (in her first big TV role) played his sister. The theme is a typical 1990's sitcom noisemaker, with synthesized drums and repeated exclamations of "Ferris!" and "Bueller!". Ugggh.
Finally, 1982's JOANIE LOVES CHACHI was a terrible spinoff of ABC's big hit HAPPY DAYS. The show premiered in the spring of 1982 with a four-episode tryout. The show ranked in the top of the ratings, due primarily to its lead-in (the aforementioned HAPPY DAYS) and the fact that its only competition for those four episodes were reruns. When the show returned in the fall of 1982, in languished near the bottom of the ratings. It didn't help that the show had possibly the worst theme song ever written: an incredibly sappy love song sung by the show's lead actors that seems to go on forever (believe it or not, it only lasts about two minutes). Erin Moran and Scott Baio were smart to return to HAPPY DAYS after this turkey was mercifully cancelled, even if HAPPY DAYS only lasted one more season.
Enjoy the themes I've added today...if you can.
