We've gone through this exercise a number of times and it's always entertaining to see what others think!
In addition to The Kids in the Hall, I always post these favourites:
So compelling that NBC bought it to use for their coverage of the Olympics!
Well... the first 20 seconds, anyway.
The Jackie Gleason Show

Fat Albert & the Cosby Kids
Scooby Doo Where Are You

Pee Wee's Playhouse
I Dream of Jeannie
Instead of posting YouTube video links, I'll just list them and say why I like them.
Love Is All Around (Mary Tyler Moore show). Written and sung by Sonny Curtis. I prefer the early version with the horn section.
Hogan's Heroes. I like the drumming.
The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I like the bass fiddle.
When We're Singin' (Partridge Family). The first version of the Partridge Family theme song. I like the driving piano accompaniment and reverberated vocals.
Movin' On. Written and sung by Merle Haggard. I like the guitar with the phase shifter.
All in the Family
Yes, yes. Everyone did. Probably the only thing everyone in the universe can agree on
If you are an old kid like myself, it's hard to beat this:
Hawaii Five O
The Adams Family
Star Trek - original series
Still trying to figure out how to do a mashup of all these with the band...
yfeffy, your post reminded me of Fireball XL-5
(3) Simon and Simon
(5) Law and Order (the original)
Here's a terrific such mashup . . .
About the M*A*S*H Theme: The lyrics to the song Suicide is Painless used in the movie, were written by the son of the film's director, Robert Altman. Altman's instructions to his son were to write "the stupidest thing possible" (I may have paraphrased). Year later, Altman confessed that his son made a lot more money from penning those lyrics than he did directing the movie.
Anyway, my faves are:
Sanford and Sons
All from my childhood....haven't much TV since the 90s, probably. There are likely great themes nowadays. But I wouldn't know.
Was there music playing during the opening? I didn't notice....
