I still prefer the original.

"It will never leave! "


2 Animaniacs

What a catchy song. This song had amazing rhymes and it introduces all of the characters greatly. It gives goofy and funny vibes in the song.

They’re zany to the max. There’s baloney in their slacks! Such a catchy theme song. I love it. Even with the changing of the ending line.

The most creatively written and composed theme song I have ever heard. I listen to it every day and it never gets old. A great song for a greater show.

Guess "who lives in a pineapple under the sea". You should know who it is, so I'll just be too lazy to type the name and ironically type much more letters than what the name of this character actually has, basically rejecting something easier to say than increasing the work and being more verbose with out saying the answer

It's a great song but why is Pokemon Indigo League not even on this list?

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

Are you ready kids
Aye aye captain
I can't hear you
aye aye captain
who lives in a pineapple under the sea
Spongebob SquarePants
absorbent and yellow is he

This intro is very creative. I don’t understand the hate behind this.

It's awesome I love Cartoon Theme Tunes that have Drums and Guitar in them I think it makes them epic. I always headbang to this cool song.

Yes I love this one What's New Scooby Doo we're coming after you gonna solve that mystery amazing.

I love this theme song because it's Simple Plan! One of my favourite bands! Cool show too!

The Contenders
11 Spider-Man

Standards for judgment may vary, but if coolness counts, the Spiderman theme is number one in my book. Even Homer Simpson sang it.

12 Danny Phantom

The only theme song in the world that tells the protagonist's whole backstory less than a minute!
Darn catchy, and doesn't need to explain the backstory in every episode!

The prime example of a rap theme song done right with a funky bass line

Inspired by the Invisible Man and very catchy

Gotta catch them all 'cause he is Danny Phantom

13 Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

Great singing from the actors and it starts with a ukulele, starts enhancing as the song goes on, giving it more of a "Steven Universe" feel, and it ends in a cool rock 'n roll guitar one noter as the main 4 characters (Steven, Pearl, Garnet, and Amethyst) say their names in a musical measure, yet Steven says his out of tune, making the song have a short moment of humor in bad timing.

The best cartoon of all time, with the best cartoon intro of all time.

It's a great theme song.

Should be at least top 3

Insert the low chimes because this song has a good tune with the deep and low chimes.

The best dub opening of all time

16 Invader Zim

This theme song gives off the "alien invader trying to take over the world" feel which is exactly what the show is, a show of an alien invader trying to take over the world.

I love this theme song so much and I even catch myself singing it when it plays.

The booming/techno tone of the opening music suits the cartoon so perfectly

Very close to animaniacs. But, the techno is awesome.

17 Code Lyoko Code Lyoko is a French animated television series created by Thomas Romain and Tania Palumbo and produced by Moonscoop.

Why, why on earth is this the most underrated cartoon theme?

One of the most emotional and epic themes ever

Amazing theme song, I love Code Lyoko but I'd go as far as to say the theme song is probably better than the show itself

Flintstones, Meet The Flintstones, their the modern stone age family
