30 Unforgettable Cartoon Theme Songs

Back in the good old days, kids would set their alarm beeping at a certain time just to catch their favorite cartoons on TV. Nothing else was worth getting themselves hurry home from school! Cartoons back then were awesome, they were works of art and their plot twists often went where children never, ever expected they'd go. 

What made them even more fantastic are the theme songs. Those tracks are guaranteed to get stuck in your head for days! They signal that you have exactly 30 seconds (give or take) to grab a TV-viewing snack and sprint from the kitchen to that sofa for another thrilling episode of whatever it is that you're watching at that time. 

From Transformers to The Little Lulu Show, we've rounded up the memorable animated classic theme songs for your listening pleasure. Check out the list below and sing along to your favorite ones! You may not know the exact lyrics but we're sure you can at least hum! Enjoy!
