TV show themes that were just cool.

The turkey has been consumed, the sports are winding down. So, time for some TV show theme music that was / is, just cool.
Everyone has favorites. Present or past. Here is one of mine. This opening title sequence for "The Virginian" was known to fans
as "The ride in". Oh yeah,,, Sara Lane. Well, at the time this aired in prime time, my hormones were starting to wake up, and
Ms. Lane was quite hot.

The Outer Limits. A contemporary of the Twilight Zone, just more sci-fi oriented. Don't know if you'd call this a theme, but I always thought it was distinctive:

Gigantor. Another 1960s cartoon series.


And why not add The Dickies version of Gigantor (1980-ish?):

My FAVORITE!

Mike Post-King of TV theme songs!


And here is that Barney Miller theme in the long version:

"Vida y Milagros del Capitán Miller" (The Life and Times of Captain Miller) by Daniel Caine Orchestra says the You Tube Help-You-Avoid-The-Copyright-Penalty link...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barney_Miller

This isn't the actual opening, or even the version as far as I know, but it nails it.

"Enterprise"

The series wasn't very good but the theme song was likable.
