Forget the CD Exchange (if I don’t participate, it doesn’t exist) let’s have a music exchange right here at Cocky & Rude! Each time we have a C&R Dance Party, I’ll name a theme for the day and you’ll post your responses in the form of a YouTube video in the comments. And don’t forget to dance!
Today’s Theme Is: Your Favorite TV Theme Songs!
Link us to a YouTube video in the comments and tell us why you picked it.
Feel free to answer more than once!
As many of you know: I’M CRAZY ABOUT TELEVISION! But I’m going to go way back to when I was in the single-digits and pick Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears! I still know all the lyrics and sing it more often that I’d like to admit! Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears was Disney‘s first major serialized animated television series and is often credited by animators and animation historians as having helped jump start the television animation boom of the late 1980s and 1990s. Consequently, it also became the forerunner to Disney’s famous Disney Afternoon timeslot, which gave way to other famous serialized Disney television series, such as DuckTales, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles, and Bonkers. (Most of which also have GREAT theme songs!!!)
Now it’s your turn!
(And by the way, if your video doesn’t post in the comments correctly, FEAR NOT!
I’ll fix it as soon as I get a chance)

When I’m carting my friends and family all over NJ and NY, there are very few Sirius stations that I’m willing to listen to. One of my favorites is Hits 1, which claims to play Top 40 Hits, but really only plays the top 10 or 12 pop hits of the moment over and over again. If you listen for more than an hour, you’re likely to hear the same song at least 3 times.
This past Thursday, I drove to Long Island and back with my mom and forced her to listen to 300 miles (about 5.5 hours) worth of Sirius Hits 1
and a Jay Z song was on, and a Jay Z song was on, and a Jay Z song was on. Most of the tunes functioned as background noise, but Hot Chelle Rae‘s Tonight Tonight kept catching my attention.
Check it out, and I apologize in advance because YouTube is a douche and won’t let me embed the video without redirecting you to their site. I apologize again because they might even make you watch an advertisement first. (dies)
And after my 3rd or 4th listen to the song, I realized what it kept reminding me of. It sounds like a freak’n Disney Afternoon theme song! As a kid in the early to mid ’90s, there was only one thing on your television set every weekday from 3:00 to 5:00pm. The Disney Afternoon was the shit! It seriously doesn’t get any better than DuckTales, Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears, TaleSpin, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck.
Tonight Tonight is so happy and poppy that it sounds like a cross between the theme to TaleSpin and actual Disney Afternoon theme song. Do you sorta hear it too, or am I just fuck’n crazy?
