    I can't fault your list, so I'll just add a few more nominees that I think are worthy of being in a top 10.

    Welcome Back Kotter
    The Jeffersons
    Family Ties
    WKRP in Cincinnatti (intro and ending themes)
    Moonlighting
    Greatest American Hero
    Hill St. Blues
    Baretta
    The Love Boat (just kidding :D)

    WKRP?!

    Barry Millers gotta make the list if only because 97% of bass players hit it wrong...

    Then again maybe that's why its not on the top 10 list..?

    Spiderman, the 60s theme? That's a cool one.

    Did a session last year, was producing a radio show & got talked into playing bass on an episode with a bunch of old superhero themes. Gotta watch out for the bridge on Spiderman... wherever theres a hang up!

    Checkmate. Blew my mind. Bizarre melody. Swirlings of psychedelic nougat visuals ....then Sebastian Cabot's name pops up. Shot in 1961 :omg

    I'll add MASH and Archer. The theme to Episodes is really catchy, too

    Some good ones have been listed.

    Here's the ones I offer for consideration:

    • L.A. Law
    • Law and Order
    • Star Trek - DS9


    I definitely agree with:

    • Cheers
    • Mash

    Fred Steiner's Park Avenue Beat
    AKA The Perry Mason Theme

    I watched Danny Gatton perform this one at the Montreal Jazz Festival; Towards the end of the set, and the old tweed combo (perched on a chair, IIRC) had that tone an amp gets just before it blows up!
