eventhis Haggis Since: 14.9.07 Since last post: 2839 days Last activity: 2836 days # 1 Posted on 6.10.07 1016.59 Quite simply, what theme song would get stuck in your head for hours after you watched the show, and that you can still remember to this day? What cartoon did you rush home from school to see because you thought the intro was the coolest thing you'd ever seen? I'm interested because I know there are different generations of posters on this board, so I thought it'd nice to see people's responses. I'm a child of the 80's, so most of mine would be from that era, such as the following: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5VW7MuIZS0 Transformers (Season 2). It's the intro featuring a lot of the season two characters (Dinobots, Omega Supreme, etc.). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vSD8DliZ1w MASK: Sure the show wasn't spectacular, but that intro is all kinds of awesome. Even with the cheesy theme song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DN034sBeF4c G.I. Joe The Movie: Best animation for the Joes ever, and nearly every major character is shown. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSO_6YxCirQ Inhumanoids: I don't remember the series that well, but the intro is memorable, mostly because every time I see it, I think, "No way they'd get away with this cartoon in this day and age."
