Hey wait, I know this one!

Here we go again!!!

It's time for another forehead-slapping edition of Hey wait, I know this one!

For those of you who haven't played before, you can check out the previous competitions here and here.

And just like the times before, I'm going to post 10 classic TV show theme songs, and you get to guess what they are.

But this time, just for Dan's sake (who recently accused me of stealing his town's mutant duck) I've included one special theme song that is sure to bring back some fond memories for him. That is if you think what he recently wrote about this show qualifies as fondness. You be the judge...

...there descended a blight upon our lives that scars my soul to this day. A television program so dire that my fingers tremble as I type its name.
Dan continues on to say:
There are many acts in our childhood for which I curse my sisters name: for somehow tricking me into choosing the smaller bedroom, for deliberately and spitefully breaking her arm when I pushed her over, and for hiding her secret diary too well. But I think the one thing for which I will hold a grudge until my dying day is the introduction of bloody [show name].
I hate it when a person masks his feelings. Come on Dan, why don't you just say how you really feel about that show?

Anyway, that show's theme song plus 9 others can heard below. Just make sure to let each song buffer for a few seconds after you click play. Oh, and you probably shouldn't play them from your reader. Otherwise if you have any trouble make sure to let me know.

So then, good luck, have fun and name those tunes!











So, I hope you all enjoyed that as much as I did - with the exception of Dan that is. I expect he still needs a little time to cool down after discovering the surprise I left for him there.

But hey, if he's going to falsely accuse me of ducknapping, well then I guess he had it coming.

Tune into laughs at!

Yay! I'm first!

I just wish I knew more....

1. Rocky and Bullwinkle
5. Clarissa Explains it all (I'm embarrassed that I know that one.)
6. Night Court
8. Who's the Boss?

Windyridge said...

2 is Little House on the Prairie.
Will be back for more later...

Windyridge said...

2. NO not LIttle House on the Prairie! The Waltons.
4. One of the later Star Treks?
The rest I haven't a clue.

Kathy said...

2. I thought this was Waltons
3. Blossom (Whoa!)

Miss Laurence said...

8. Madame est servie (who's the boss?)

Shame on me... It is the only one I can recognize !

I love Quizz ! :)

Ed said...

Ok Jeff. You have to stop the madness!

1. Rocky & Bullwinkle
2. The Waltons
3. Blossom
4. Battlestar Galacta
5. Clarissa Explains it all
6. Night Court
7. Knots Landing
8. Wife Says it's "Rhoda"
9. Hart to Hart?
10. I have no clue but like the Jazz Riffs

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

Wow, you guys are all over this!

You've got several right and are close on a few. I'll summarize the correct ones:

1. Part of the Rocky & Bullwinkle Comedy Hour, but be more specific
2. The Waltons
3. Blossom
4. Battlestar Galactica
5. Clarissa Explains it all
6. Night Court
7. Knots Landing
8. Who's the Boss

Good work everyone!

Ed said...

1. The Mr. Know it All Segment of Rocky & Bullwinkle?

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

Sorry Ed, keep trying... but good job on the others! Watch TV as a youngster much?

Memarie Lane said...

All the ones I got everyone guessed. Could have sworn #2 was Little House though. I have never seen a single episode of the Waltons, but I remember this song.

Anonymous said...

I know number ten, but can't put my finger on the actual answer. I've a feeling it's a cartoon though. Ren and Stimpy is my guess, but it's probably wrong.

Number nine I don't know.

fortunately I was late enough to this post that I could read other people's comments and therefore avoid the dreaded clarissa.

Heather said...

Yeah, we stink. We had 5 of them right, of what we guessed. #9 sounds familiar, but it's not coming to me.

I have to say that Craig knew the Blossom one...not me.

Ed said...

Watch TV? It was my babysitter!

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

dan - You're always good for the dark horse. Yes - that IS Ren and Stimpy! Good job. I think you're the one who got Gentle Ben in my other contest, and I didn't think anyone would get that one either.

Too bad you didn't have to hear Clarissa. You sure you won't give it a listen just for me?

Dagny said...

I thought that 9 was Remington Steele. Otherwise, I don't disagree with some of other that answers that have already been posted.

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

Almost there! Just looking for the specific answer to #1 and #9.

Heres the tally so far:

1. Part of the Rocky & Bullwinkle Comedy Hour, but be more specific
2. The Waltons
3. Blossom
4. Battlestar Galactica
5. Clarissa Explains it All
6. Night Court
7. Knots Landing
8. Who's the Boss
10. Ren & Stimpy

wordandcraft said...

Long-time lurker, first time commenter. :) I surfed in here one time from The Junk Drawer.

9. Police Woman

Whit said...

9. Hart to Hart

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

momof3gr8kids - Thanks for the delurk... you got it right!

I'll give everyone one more shot at which cartoon #1 is from. Think of the Rocky & Bullwinkle line up and see if you can guess which one it is.

Anonymous said...

peabody and sherman.

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

AND... we have a wrap!

Here's the final answers:
1. Peabody and Sherman (Leigh)
2. The Waltons (Windyridge)
3. Blossom (Kathy)
4. Battlestar Galactica (Ed)
5. Clarissa Explains it All (SandY)
6. Night Court (Sandy)
7. Knots Landing (Ed)
8. Who's the Boss (Sandy)
9. Police Woman (Momof3gr8kids)
10. Ren & Stimpy (Dan)

Good job everybody. This one was definitely easier than the previous ones. Next month it's going to be harder... AND include a prize! So stay tuned!

Mom Thumb said...

What the hell is this Clarissa thing? Never heard of it.

Mooselet said...

Hey wait, I know that... ouch! I hurt myself when I slapped my head.

Number 1 wouldn't play for me, I got numbers 2, 4, 5 and 8, thought that 10 was maybe Johnny Bravo (at least I knew it was a cartoon!) and had no clue on the rest.

I guess I didn't know those and therefore shouldn't have hit myself in the head.

bon bon said...

since it's getting late and i haven't much time, i played them all at once...theme song overload!!! actually, not a wise idea if you're hoping to fall asleep soon.

Tracy Rambles On And On said...

Some of those shows were before my time....ahem....but I think I know a few. Here goes:

2. The Waltons
3. Blossom (I loved her and all her hats and totally crushed on her brother!)
5. Clarrissa Explains It All (I'm such a dork)
6. Night Court
8. Who's the Boss

That was fun!

Karen MEG said...

Jeff, what an awesome idea for your blog! I came late to the party, but honestly I only knew a couple (Waltons and Knot's landing)...I can't wait for the next installment.

I'm scared though, if this was an EASIER one!
Have a good day!

yellojkt said...

Here are my guesses before I read the other comments:

1. My Favorite Martian
5 Clarissa Explains It All
6 Barney Miller
8 Taxi
9 Charlie's Angels

Ha! The only one I got right was Clarissa. That is pretty frightening given my fondness for tweener shows.

Jenn said...

I'm so late but I knew Battlestar Galactica and Ren and Stimpy. (RHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEN!!!)
