Cue the Opening Theme

This morning on my drudging commute to work, the deejays on my favorite morning show were talking about the best television theme songs. They named some of the greats (Golden Girls, M*A*S*H, and Cheers) but left out a few that I felt should be included.


Full House

“Everywhere You Look”

Who didn’t butcher the words to this song as a kid? (When Huff the Hubs was little he’d sing one of the lines as: “Meat-man TV!” ha!) You knew when 7:00 on Tuesday nights rolled around, you had to fight for the “good spot” on the couch and settle in to see what shenanigans those crazy Tanners would get into this week.


The Simpsons

“The Simpsons Theme”

As a kid, dinner didn’t start until you heard the opening line, “The Simpsooooooooonsssss….” and subsequent: “Do do do do do do do, do do do do!”



The Addams Family

“The Addams Family”

This song is on everyone’s Halloween party playlist! We all know it and all mess up the finely choreographed snaps (that have to be fake; no one snaps that well!).


Looney Tunes

“The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down”

I was raised on these cartoons because my dad was such a huge fan. Hearing the Looney Tunes theme on a Saturday morning was my cue that my dad was done watching This Old House and we kids could have control of the remote.



What are your favorite TV theme songs? Any make the cut?

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday/first day of November!
Most of you are probably counting down the hours to the weekend so you can’t stop checking the clock and head home to scarf down the buckets of candy you scored last night. Or invoke your “Parent Tax” and steal some from your kids. It may not be chocolaty goodness, but I do have some treats to quench your fandom hunger!

If Hermione didn’t already have the COOLEST night light ever, I may be tempted to get this!

Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

It’s a light that projects a rainbow throughout the entire room! Sadly, no pot of gold at the end of it.

Huff the Hubs and I don’t have pets. Scratch that. We have this fish. His name is Gandalf. And even though he’s not real, I think he needs this:

Hulk smash the fish!

Think Geek has these awesome Marvel aquarium accessories! There’s Spidey, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Wolverine!  I may get them just to put on my desk!

Last FGF, I blogged about a book I saw at Michael’s called Knits for Nerds. I found yet another awesomely geeky knitting book (I guess its time for me to try this hobby!)

On sale now at Flourish and Blotts!

You ca knits all kinds of wizarding world wonders with the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits guide! Maybe make your favorite blogger a Weasley sweater for Christmas…?

Guys. Its November. You know what that means. My favorite holiday–Black Friday–is only a few weeks away AND The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be in theaters before we know it! In the spirit of all things hobbit, I saw this on Pinterest and had to share with those of you that don’t watch The Simpsons as religiously as HtH and I do.
