Classic U.S. TV Series
THEME Music List

This list focuses primarily on Main Title and End Credits THEMEs for network and nationally - syndicated series which aired (in most cases) before 1965. In some cases, when a series continued past that time in various incarnations, additional THEME information of later dates was provided to give context. If a more recent series used a particularly admirable composer or craftsmanlike theme composition, additional information is also provided. Why are Multiple Themes sometimes listed for a single Series? There are several reasons -- explained here.
