Thursday Movie Picks #53: Television Edition: Scores and Theme Songs (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: Television Edition: Scores and Theme Songs (WEIRDEST)!

So, this week's theme is once again about TV theme songs and scores.  Because this blog is dedicated to everything weird, I went with the three weirdest sounding theme songs that I have ever heard!

Now, this theme song might not sound too weird for most people, as this show is about babies, so of course you're going to have a baby sounding theme song to this series.  But, the xylophones accompanying this theme song gave this theme song an odd yet unique sounding edge! 

Not only did this have one of the weirdest intros in children's television, but it has a nice spacey feel to the theme music that really made this theme song seem out of this world!

3. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

As it's a show about imaginary friends, of course it would have a weird sounding theme song.  This theme song seems to have a 1920s aesthetic to it as you can hear the kazoo playing in the background!

And don't forget!!  The Weirdest Movies Blogathon will be running from April 23rd - May 20th!  So please sign up today!




  1. Awww Rugrats! That's a blast from the past.

  2. Nice theme within the theme and the music in each seems very apt for the shows. I've never watched a single one willingly but I know I saw a couple of episodes of Rugrats when I was babysitting my nieces and nephew when they were kids.

    I went with three enormous hits from the seventies, all with instantly recognizable openings.

    Laverne & Shirley (1976-1983)-Two wacky single gals work in a brewery and look for love in Milwaukee.

    Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!
    (Just an FYI according to an old Yiddish saying “A schlemiel is somebody who often spills his soup, and a schlimazel is the person it lands on.” Hasenpfeffer is a German stew.)

    The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-1977)-Spunky, independent single woman moves to Minneapolis to start a new life. Lands as Associate Producer of the news at tiny WJM station. Spends the next seven years surrounded by classic characters.

    Who can turn the world on with her smile?
    Who can take a nothing day
    And suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?

    The Jeffersons (1975-1985)-Prosperous dry cleaner George Jefferson & his often exasperated wife Louise move into a ritzy apartment on Manhattan’s East Side. Thanks to George’s cocky brashness endless humorous troubles befall the pair.

    Well, we're moving on upppp
    To the East side
    To a deluxe apartment in the sky-y-y
    Moving on up to the East side
    We finally got a piece of the pie!

    1. Oh man! I remembered the Jeffersons theme! It's still stuck in my head!

  3. I am not familiar with any of these but I agree that Bobby's World has quite a weird intro for a children's show.

  4. All of these are pretty new to me. The Rugrats theme is fun. Nice picks!
