Groovy Theme Songs 2

Mister Ed

I am never sure if they were groovy or not but I do remember these shows and the theme songs that go with them. The shows ran in the late 60s and early 70s. But I will start with Mister Ed, which broadcast from 1961 to 1966. I do remember watching this one, and laughing so hard, thinking it was the funniest thing ever. A talking horse!

Room 222

I also definitely remember watching Room 222. It ran from 1969 to 1974, and showed the trials and tribulations of a group of high school kids and their teachers. It was one of the first shows I remember featuring an interracial cast. It also introduced us to goofy Karen Valentine, who went on to many other shows, including Hollywood Squares.

Love American Style

And if you were alive between 1969 and 1974, how could anyone have missed Love American Style. It was irreverent and thought to be quite risque, although in reality, it was just kinda silly. LOL

The Odd Couple

This theme song could be identified with just the opening few bars, it is so distinctive. I also remember watching The Odd Couple, which was on from 1970 to 1975. It featured two veteran actors, Jack Klugman and Tony Randall, both who put in wonderful performances week after week.


  1. Thanks a lot! Now I can't get the Mr Ed theme song out of my head. If it is still playing in my brain in 12 hours... you are to blame!

    I am old enought to remember each of these tunes!

  2. Stephen, you are welcome.... The one I can't get out of my mind is The Odd Couple!

  3. Three of my favorite theme songs - Room 222, Love, American Style and The Odd Couple (I was never much of a Mr. Ed fan, but it's still a catchy theme song). Thanks for the groovy memories, Howard!

  4. I still from time to time find myself singing the Mr. Ed theme music, though to be quite honest, I've never watched any of these shows even in rerun. :(

  5. Marc, you are welcome!

    Writer, LOL. So catchy!
