Out of the blue, this tune from my childhood popped into my head. Do you remember it? If you're my age (40-something) and watched it every day as a child as I did, it's likely permanently etched on the chalkboard in your brain.
If you're not humming this tune yet, check out the video below.
(It's an amazing age we live in, isn't it, when I can, in the click of a few computer keys, pull up an episode of that old cartoon. Amazing. Just amazing.)
So gentle and imaginative. &:o)
Of course I shared this with the children. Our 2 year-old quickly bored of it, but the older children were drawn right in (pun intended...) Anna says, "I need a giant alarm clock like that." And she's right, the little sleepy head ~ she does!
Captain Kangaroo was a childhood favorite for me. Do you remember that tune?
How 'bout the theme song to another favorite,
Surely you remember the theme song to Gilligan's Island?
And I know you know the Brady Bunch theme song!
But how about George of the Jungle?
Can you hum the theme song to the original Get Smart TV show? (What a classic opening sequence. My Dad loved this show! Just hearing this music makes me think of him.)
Can you think of any other themes that I should have on this list?
