In honor of COZI TV's first ever brand ambassador Antonio Fargas—yes, "Huggy Bear" from Starsky & Hutch—join us in celebrating with this new COZI musical video performed by Antonio and his fun, high-stepping swing band, The New Jump Blues. It's warm, entertaining and easy to watch, just like we are!
Now, we’re getting funky! The most recognizable of the ever-changing Starsky & Hutch theme songs was the song “Gotcha" in season two. In the original vinyl release, the record was called “Starsky & Hutch - The Theme” featuring Huggy Bear and Andy G's Starsky & Hutch Allstars. The theme song was also featured years later in the Dance Dance Revolution video game series.
Who can forget the famous whistling? The most memorable of the Lassie theme songs appeared at the start of the fifth season, with the whistling itself performed by Muzzy Marcellino, who was appropriately nicknamed "The Whistler".
"This is my boss, Jonathan Hart, a self-made millionaire, he's quite a guy. This is Mrs H., she's gorgeous. She's one lady who knows how to take care of herself. By the way my name is Max. I take care of both of them, which ain't easy cause when they met it was murder." The opener was so popular it was recently remade by Amy Poehler and Adam Scott, two big fans of the show.
The Magnum P.I. theme song by Mike Post was a Top 40 hit in 1982, peaking at #35 on the pop charts. Post was the go-to composer for TV theme songs at the time. His work includes: The Rockford Files, The A-Team, Quantum Leap, Law & Order and more.
The unmistakable beat of the Knight Rider opening theme song, as KITT cruises in the background, was composed by Stu Phillips. It was more recently sampled in rapper Busta Rhymes's song "Fire It Up".
This instantly identifiable snappy theme song was composed for the series by Earle Hagen, who is also responsible for the melodies that kicked off The Andy Griffith Show, I Spy and The Danny Thomas Show, just to name a few.
The iconic intro of the ominous instrumental "Dum de Dum Dum Dummm" was used in both the radio (1949) and television (1951) shows. You can't hear that sound without thinking of Sergeant Joe Friday.
The opening theme song for Charlie’s Angels was known for the narration by John Forsythe speaking over 70s-style beauty pageant music. But did you know that there are two versions of the narration and Forsythe was practically begging to take the job last minute?
During the opening theme song of The Six Million Dollar Man with the famous voiceover by Oscar Goldman, we see a M2-F2 plane crash. This was actual footage from a crash that occurred on May 10,1967 at Edwards Air Force Base. The aircraft pilot survived the crash and has said the theme song is a constant reminder of that day, but still liked watching the show.
