My apologies if this was already mentioned (I did scroll through).
This is also a topic of Family Guy parody, but at this point what isn't.
According to one internet search, the drummer is Harvey Mason.

Love this one....



This next one was a show I watched as a kid, out of Canada. I loved the music, and when I stumbled onto it many years later, I did a bit of research. The composer is Mort Garson, and it's all done on a Moog.

Green Acres.

Vic Mizzy was a genius. He also wrote the Addams Family theme, which is great.

Another favorite - Sopranos.

Ooooh, I almost forgot my very favorite... "Star Cops". The theme was by Justin Hayward (Moody Blues):

Wow...5 pages and not one mention of Primus for South Park...


and not even Billy Joe Shaver for Squidbillies.


The gag with Squidbillies is the different artist they've gotten to do the theme song.

Like Country legend George Jones


The hip swing jazz of the Archer theme song


and no one even mentioned Monty Python.


And how in in 5 pages did no one get the Muppet Show?


Maybe I missed it, but did anyone mention the funniest 60's sitcom ever, Get Smart?

John Prine! That's a well worn and played D-28


Seen them both. Francine Reed with Lyle Lovettes Big Band and Chuck Leveall with The Allman Brothers.

Love the Bosch opening credits too! One of my favorite shows.
I thought that was the reasoning behind this thread, as it's become relevant again, and it is a killer song

Mine would be Tom sawyer. It was the theme song to macgyver in Brazil. So that counts, right?
