The Top Ten

1 Liberty's Kids

Love the rap part. When you see this you know you are in for a treat.

2 Sesame Street Sesame Street Sesame Street is a long-running American children's television series, produced by Sesame Workshop and created by Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett.

When it's been around that long... HAS TO BE #1!

It's basically lalalala

No the old one is lalala but it has lyrics
"Sunny days,sweepin the clouds away"
"On my way to where the air is sweet"
"Can you tell me how to get,how to get to Sesame Street"

3 Between the Lions Between the Lions Between the Lions is an American children's television series designed to promote reading. The show was a co-production between WGBH in Boston and Sirius Thinking, Ltd., in New York City, in association with Mississippi Public Broadcasting, in Mississippi.

They hit it on the mark with this. It's... The... Cat in the Hat!

5 Magic School Bus

Surfin' on the soundwaves, swinging through the stars, take a left at your intestine, take your second right past Mars, ON THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS!
This is one of my all time favorite theme songs. The lyrics are so awesome, and it does exactly what a theme song is supposed to do, it gets you pumped to watch the actual show! My and my cousin took a 20 minute walk down her street, and the whole time we played this song on full blast! - Discord

Heard in the Genesis video game as I turn on my classic game system with the game cartridge inserted. - playstationfan66

So perfect. So 90's. So AWESOME!

6 Reading Rainbow Reading Rainbow Reading Rainbow is an American half-hour children's television series that aired on PBS Kids from June 6, 1983, to November 10, 2006, with a total of 155 half-hour episodes spanning over 21 seasons.

A classic that has been engraved in culture.

7 Arthur

The Arthur theme song isn't exactly original. I think the Arthur theme song is copying the Fat Albert theme song because the Arthur theme song goes like this:
"Everybody say HEY! What a wonderful kind of day"
And the Fat Albert theme song goes like this:
"Hey, Hey, Hey! " And "Na, na, na gonna have a good time! "
Both theme songs are about "Hey" and "Good times and wonderful days"

I like the singer's voice. This goes along well with the series.

The theme song sucks! - cosmo

8 Wild Kratts Wild Kratts Wild Kratts is an American-Canadian educational children's animated series created by Chris and Martin Kratt.

Wild Kratts music is bad, the voice is horrible, and the transitions, please do not get me started. Wild Kratts is the best show EVER, but the theme stinks.

Wild kratts theme song is great because it has the different animals in it

Love the show and it's nature wildness

It's as awesome as the show is

I like the theme song because I starts out kind of like a old movie then all of a sudden it has a twist to it

The theme song is awesome, it has a 50s rock and roll theme, and besides which theme song is better: the rjg theme or the dora theme? right answer: ready jet go

No no no no no no no ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE SONG

13 Jay Jay the Jet Plane

I like how they made a annoying rhythm work. The lyrics and the voices are perfect, and the transitions don't hurt your eyes. (Wild Kratts, take notice! )

14 The Electric Company

Honestly, I considered it, but I think Sid is a LITTLE bit better.

15 Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Mister Rogers' Neighborhood is an American half-hour children's television series that was created and hosted by namesake Fred Rogers.

This is older than SS but retired right before 9/11. - Curtis_Huber

Not very catchy, but at least it isn't annoying like a lot of other themes I know... (Bob the Builder I'm after you! Watch your hat! )

I forgot Curious George, where is he on the list?

I forgot Curious George

18 Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends

They don't really HAVE a song!

Thomas was my favorite show when I was a toddler and yes, they have a song, but no, I wouldn't classify it as a real top 10 material song and besides, the song changed basically every year so it's not exactly symbolic.

19 Bill Nye the Science Guy

Bill Nye is the property of Disney. At the end of each episode, the Buena Vista Television logo appears. - playstationfan66

20 Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, sometimes shortened as Fetch!, is an American animated television series that was on PBS Kids.
