About This Quiz

If hearing a television show theme song brings back memories, this quiz is for you.

"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated. We're gonna do it!" Face it; you didn't read that, you sang it. The theme song from "Laverne and Shirley" ranks as one of the most recognizable of all time. 

Although we can't say if they were originally intended to do so, a show's theme song has the power to take you back to a (hopefully) simpler, happier time. The association between the show and its theme song can bring back memories.

Most television show theme songs are very well thought out ditties. Producers don't just pick a song and slap it into the show's introductory sequence. Theme songs are often written specifically for a show, but in some cases, an already established song works just fine. 

For instance, the theme song for "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," "Yo Home to Bel Air," was written for the show and performed by Will Smith himself. But the opening song for the television sitcom, "Happy Days," "Rock Around the Clock," was written before the show aired for the first time.

Take this quiz if you think you can name these TV show tunes.
