TV Show Theme Song Lyric Quiz

It’s our anniversary here at and we thought, what better way to celebrate the start of our fifth year than to crank up the nostalgia machine for a TV quiz!

While many TV shows had instrumental theme songs as their openings (think Bewitched, Hawaii Five-0 and Get Smart), this quiz will test your knowledge of the LYRICS from the theme songs of popular TV shows of the 1960s and ’70s. Complete the phrases to this baker’s dozen and enjoy the trip! Some phrases are from the beginning of the songs while others are taken from later verses. Give yourself an extra point if you can sing at least one of these songs, correct and complete, start to finish!
