Top 10 Shows on PBS Kids with the Best Opening Theme

The Top Ten
1 Liberty's Kids

I freaking love this show! Number 1 fave and I'm happy that while they may have canned Henri 4 times, at least he didn't get smacked with a bowl of soup. You'd have to watch GTLive to get that reference.

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

I listened to this and you guys are right!

2 Cyberchase Cyberchase is an American–Canadian animated television series on PBS Kids. The series focuses around three Earth kids, Jackie, Matt, and Inez, who are brought into Cyberspace, a digital universe, to protect it from the evil Hacker. Cyberchase was created by Thirteen. It was first shown on WNET as more.

I need to know why Cyberchase isn't number 1. This theme song will have you replaying it over and over and over again (Trust me I've done it before. Not only that but this show will bring fond memories to those who grew up with PBS Kids in the 2000's. If you are a parent then highly recommend you watch this show with your child because it is very educational and it helps children with math and they even squeeze in some science topics too!

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

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

The theme song is awesome and it has a nice tune

Love the show and it's nature wildness

It's as awesome as the show is

4 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!

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

"please let this be a normal show"

"With the Friz? N O W A Y! "

“Com’on the magic school bus!” Ha, that always gets me every time.

5 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.

Why is this not higher on the list? This, along with Liberty’s Kids and Cyberchase, are the three songs that are stuck in my head right now.

6 Odd Squad

How can you not love this show? As soon as you hear "My name is Agent Olive..." you know you are in for something special!

7 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.
8 Ready Jet Go Ready Jet Go! is a CGI animated television series created by Craig Bartlett which premiered in the United States as part of the PBS Kids block on February 15, 2016 . The series is produced by Wind Dancer Films and Snee Oosh, Inc. in cooperation with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The show is aimed more.

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

Ready.. jet.. GO! I really only watch it because Dalila Bela, or Olive from Odd Squad, is in it, but that theme song will have you singing.

9 Word Girl

Watch the theme and tell me what you think.

It's honestly very catchy

10 Clifford Clifford the Big Red Dog is an American-British educational animated children's television series, based upon Norman Bridwell's children's book series of the same name. Produced by Scholastic Productions, it originally aired on PBS Kids from September 4, 2000 to February 25, 2003.

The new theme song is annoying. The old is catchy and nostalgic.

The Contenders

But, it tchotchkes about exploring the doors with my 2015-2018

22 The Ruff Ruffman Show
23 Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?
24 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! )

25 Noddy

This song is extremely catchy and I love it! "Welcome to our place! We've been waiting. Time for some fun and ce-le-bra-ting! Something is always ready to pop! Here at the Noddy Shop! "
