Really, what other opening music has been so 'intertwinned'with our chilhood ? Only as we grew up and lost our innocence, did we realise it was, The William Tell Overture that we were listening to as we watched...The Lone Ranger & 'Silver' race acroos our T.V. Screens, Really, no other opening sequence, comes close !

The choices are for best opener, not best theme song, which would explain why the Lone Ranger's theme, The William Tell Overture, is eligible. It's the entire dramatic opening people have voted for!
And again, this list stops at 1969, before The Jeffersons, Good Times, Mary Tyler Moore, M*A*S*H, All in the Family, and many others that have been cited as "missing."

Wow. I've been reading your stuff for about a year now and this is basically the only sh*t I dont agree with. Give atleast a little credit where credit is due. Kobe got his ass kicked by this so called fluke. So what? Chill out. No one said the Rockets were the best team.

Your list forgot two "historical" half hour family comedies from the 1950's: Ozzie and Harriett, and Father Knows Best.
These two shows featured " white, middle class" families living with INDOOR Plumbing in nice houses. This was one of the first "visual" clues to poor Southern African- Americans that not all of America still used "outdoor" plumbing!

Hey what about (insert name of show that started well after 1969)??? Golly, you guys sure are stinkers for missing that one! Also, to the obsessive who's voted for the Lone Ranger a thousand times, give it a rest, will 'ya.

Another vote for The Defenders -- if anybody has a link to it, I'd love to get it. Been searching for years. Gorgeous trumpet solo; Dynasty is the closest thing to it, but not quite there.

The Lone Ranger was the first show I saw on TV

I can't believe no "Mod Squad". No reason to vote then. It was cool!

You left out Secret Agent Man aka Danger Man (UK) and "Secret Agent Man" (song), written by Steve Barri and P. F. Sloan used as the opening theme for American broadcast of the TV series Danger Man
retitled Secret Agent Man
