Like many latch key kids of my generation, TV raised me. I’m sure I lost my fair share of IQ points logging so many hours in front of the idiot box but it did make me something of a TV theme song savant. The TV shows in this video are all before my time but I know my fair share of obscure ones too. Anyone remember the theme from Mel Brooks sitcom “When Things Were Rotten?” I do! How about the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” spin-off “Phyllis?” Yup, I can sing that one too. Can anyone else hum the disco-rific theme song for the Desi Arnaz Jr. stinker “Automan?’ No? Uh… yeah… me neither.
