Thursday Movie Picks #51: TV Edition-Opening Title Sequence (WEIRDEST)

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!

This week's theme is: Opening Title Sequence - TV Edition (WEIRDEST)!

Oh my goodness!  This week's theme is like PERFECT for this blog!  As you may know, I tend to review lots of weird movies and TV shows on this blog.  So, I decided to go with the five WEIRDEST TV openings that I have ever seen!

The original surreal sketch comedy showcase for the Monty Python troupe.

I remembered watching this show back in the day and remembered just how WEIRD this show was!  So of course, the opening for the series was weird as well, especially with that jerky animation that the show is well known for!

Pee-Wee Herman and his friends have wacky, imaginative fun in his unique playhouse.

I saw a few episodes of "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" when I was little and man, was this show REALLY WEIRD!  Even though there were a lot of things that was weird about this show, the weirdest thing about this show was the opening theme song as it clocked in over 2 minutes and it showcased all of the bizarre objects that live inside Pee-Wee's playhouse!  I will admit that the talking furniture in this show had always disturbed me.

3. Beetlejuice (Cartoon Series)

Adventures of the ghostly con-artist and his 12-year-old pal, Lydia.

I used to watch this cartoon all the time when I was little, although I was absolutely terrified of it (just like how I was terrified of the live action movie that inspired this series).  But what always terrified me about this series was the opening theme song as there's loads of creepy imagery jumping on the screen.  However, I chose the original intro of this series since it was much weirder and creepier than the second version that I grew up watching.

The wacky and sometimes surreal adventures of Norbert and Daggett Beaver.

Oh man!  I loved this show when I was growing up and it still holds up to this very day!  One of the things that I loved most about this show was the weird yet colorful opening of Daggett and Norbert dancing in a surreal background that's constantly moving around!

A newlywed with the ability to communicate with the earthbound spirits of the recently deceased overcomes skepticism and doubt to help send their important messages to the living and allow the dead to pass on to the other side.


I remembered watching this show a lot when I was little and I loved the creepy supernatural things going on in this show!  But what always stood out to me about this show was the weird and creepy opening.  It just screams to you that this show is going to involve lots of creepy stuff (and it did) as well as some sad things.
