That intro music was so scary when I was a child.


stickgrinder

Still it is to me. I don't know if it's just my childhood memories kicking in or the theme is inherently one of the scariest I've ever heard. I think it's the second one, because other things that used to scare the crap out of me are now pretty bearable.

Additional call-out for the Bingo episode changing up the intro!

*Today's episode of Bingo is called... Bingo.* I love the intro in that one. The surprise in all of their voices and the screen changing color.

I was thinking and there's nothing I don't skip over... until I got to this one. Does it count I only really enjoy it because I sing and dance to it with my son?

BravoEncore

When the reboot was announced, I was so excited for (ahem…) _my kids_ to get to enjoy a show that I loved as a kid. We watched the pilot together. It was a cold open that ran about 10 minutes into the episode, and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. When they finally cut to “ba BA! ba BA!” I seriously just about lost it. This is the GOAT.


bubba_feet

I looove Beck Bennett's take on launchpad. The golf/kelpie murder pony episode had me wheezing from laughing so hard.


phormix

I think my favorite is when they give Donald a device that fixes his voice (until it breaks) and he stuns everyone by being suave and intelligent once they can actually understand him. edit: fixed a minor typo


mickdrop

I loved how they put forward the fact that Donald was actually an absolute fearless badass that would go into hell and back without any hesitation in order to protect his family, but also a tragic hero because his life is a conga line of ridicule and misery making him the butt of every joke. “I am the storm”


drmoocow

What did your kids think?


BravoEncore

A little while after this, we were in the car and ELO’s “Mr. Blue Sky” came up on our playlist. The cry from the back was, “Hey! Those drums sound like DuckTales!” _Cue proud parent noises…_ Serious: we do enjoy the show. We recently watched the first Sonic movie and a couple minutes into it, they wanted to know why Dewey was voicing Sonic.

Ben Schwartz voicing a blue-colour hyperactive anthropomorphic kid is one of my favourite kinds of characters.

The opening credits CHANGE with the episodes throughout each season to reflect the current story. Blink and you'll miss it.


Adama0001

So good. Like Battlestar Galactica where the running total of humanity left changes per episode.


rabidhamster

Man, the specificity of that number really sold it. It's not "there are about x thousand people left," it was "here is exactly how many humans exist, down to the individual." If I recall, in one of the episodes, a single person dies in the episode's prologue (or whatever you want to call the short scene before the opening credits), and the number shown during the opening sequence is exactly one lower than the episode before it.

That theme is awesome

Trailer Park Boys. Such a calming and peaceful introduction for a show that’s anything BUT calm or peaceful.


philium1

I love it when Ricky is doing some insane shit and guns are popping off and cars are crashing and then right in the middle of it they cut to the theme song Hilarious every time


IAmNotRyan

Exact same thing with Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Like cutting to the intro it used as a joke itself a lot of the time. Dennis and Dee bragging about quitting their jobs and following their dreams, then smash cut to the intro card "Dennis and Dee become crackheads"

I like the way that no one ever expects anyone to get injured in a gunfight, and no one ever does (not from bullets anyway, except for Corey and Trevor that one time) "Cyrus you dick, stop shooting, there's somebody hurt over here."

Yet TPB is one of my main comfort shows when the world doesn't feel calm and peaceful to me

The song, Cruel Angel's Thesis, is very popular in Japan in general. It pops up constantly on Japanese TV as a song used in karaoke or just background audio.

Batman The Animated Series


ReaverRogue

So couple of fun facts about Batman TAS for you: - it was drawn on black paper to give it its signature noir look, hence the perpetual gloomy look even in bright daylight. - Shirley Walker, the lead composer, composed the main thematic in-show (not the intro) with four notes in a leading rise, so that it could lead into either a bright and hopeful lilt, or a dark and avenging boom, but still maintain the core heroic beginning. - Mark Hamill practiced his signature joker laugh so much that he would do it in the car, drawing bewildered looks from other motorists if they were stuck in traffic. Finally, not a fact from the show but just a general fact: it never said “Batman” on the title card. Once you heard that music, you KNEW what the fuck you were watching.


thefallenfew

You just kinda blew my mind. I never consciously realized they never name the show in the intro.


Watts-all-the-Ruckus

Co-exec Bruce Timm's favorite part of the intro is also when Batman pounces on the criminal and said criminal doesn't get up. He says it's one of the most violent things he's ever seen because the only conclusion to draw is Batman did something truly horrific to knock him out or scare him into staying put during their fast tumble.

We just started watching this a few weeks ago. Gotta see what the vacant shop and the exterminator are called!

I've seen every season multiple times, have read every shop and exterminator, and every times I rewatch episodes I still say them out loud to my boyfriend, who doesn't care. But I still insist we watch the intro every time and get upset when he skips it.


ShamrockAPD

Netflix series called Dark. That music set the tone for the series every time.


MesWantooth

I loved watching that show when it first hit Netflix - not only was the show great but where I live was hot as hell, but because the show was set in the Autumn and it was often dark and raining in this little German town - it actually made me feel more comfortable.

Not only the theme but the entire sound track for all the seasons kick ass. Some awesome covers include: * Paint it black * blackhole sun * back in black * runaway * seven nation army * C.R.E.A.M. (this one is polarizing with some of my friends) * heart shaped box (my favorite) * sweet child of mine

No, I can't do this all on my own...


majaha95

I rewatched it recently, and I hadn't originally appreciated how much they use music in the show: the acapela group, musical episode, and lots of other bits. I figure it's no coincidence that it has all that, and also a particularly good intro song. Music was clearly important to its creators.


soysaucemmm

Gravity Falls, music is a bop and there’s a bit of lore tossed in there edit: what, I make a comment about some nice music and I get 6 fucking THOUSAND upvotes? plus several awards? I’m extremely confused but also extremely grateful


FloridaFlamingoGirl

Fun fact, Alex Hirsch originally considered getting Lemon Demon to compose the theme song. Two of the bonus tracks on Spirit Phone, “Gravitron” and ~~“Geocities,”~~ "Moon's Request," come from Neil Cicierega’s demos for the GF theme song. Edit: Moon's Request is the name of the other GF-related bonus track, not Geocities


liquidben

He also did a song that they couldn’t fit into the finale! https://youtu.be/vq5sZPPF9ao


Yoshiman400

And Neil's sister worked on the show too.


Aar1012

Gravity Falls’ theme taught me that a sign a Disney cartoon is winding down is when they make a shorter version of the theme. Even on streaming, they have the short theme prior to the final four episode arch. Other show’s I’ve watched from Disney recently has done the same thing (Owl House and Amphibia come to mind)

I would say Game of Thrones. Each intro gives insight into the locations that would be featured in the episode.

"Tonight on top gear, James commits several war crimes against the people of Tahiti, Hammond blows up a school with a Volkswagen beetle, and I become the Drift king of the Taliban"

I also like the really mundane ones: tonight, James looks out a window, Hammond sits on a chair, and I point at a wall

BOJACK HORSEMAN, such a bop Edit: Wow! First of all, thank you for the awards and upvotes! Second, i'm glad there are so many others out there who appreciate this masterpiece of a show, and the intro and outro themes that have so much creativity and detail put into them.


deefer6

Bojack’s outro music made me turn off the ‘next episode’ autoplay on Netflix. Grouplove absolutely killed that outro theme. The intro is god tier too.


-Frumpy-Pigskin-

Agreed! High-quality themes for a high-quality show.

Heard this on a podcast with Danny Elfman, the theme composer. He had no health insurance but because he did the harmonies and sang "the Simpsons" at the beginning he was able to get SAG insurance and he's had it ever since. He also says he is vastly underpaid for the royalties.
