    They're creepy and they're kookyMysterious and spookyThey're all together ookyTHE ADDAMS FAMILYTheir house is a museumWhere people come to see 'emThey really are a screamTHE ADDAMS FAMILY(da-da-da-dum-snap fingers) Neat(da-da-da-dum-snap fingers) Sweet(da-da-da-dum, da-da-da-dum,da-da-da-dum-snap fingers) PetiteSo get a witches shawl onA broomstick you can crawl onWe're gonna pay a call onTHE ADDAMS FAMILYWell, I hope you were all singing and snapping along with that one!It was written by Vic Mizzy, who also wrote the theme song to Green Acres. The more you know...This is a delightful book for baby boomers or any fans of sixties and seventies television. For each of the 44 TV themes, there is also a page of info about each show that includes a cast list, background information, a trivia quiz, and lyrics - most featuring sheet music, so you can play along on the instrument of your choice.In between the shows, there is that pause that refreshes...a word from our sponsor - yep, lyrics to old TV commercials! Do you remember this one? I'm Chiquita Banana and I've come to say, Bananas have to ripen in a certain way.When they are flecked with brown and have a golden hue,Bananas taste the best and are the best for you.And surely, you haven't forgotten this?Hot Dogs, Armour Hot DogsWhat kind of kids love Armour Hot Dogs?Big kids, little kids, kids who climb on rocksFat kids, skinny kids, even kids with chicken pox love hot dogsArmour Hot DogsThe dogs kids love to bite!(I've always LOVED the line about "kids with chicken pox!")I was surprised to learn that several shows with instrumental theme songs actually HAD lyrics that never aired, like Bewitched, The Andy Griffith Show, and even Star Trek.Be-yond the rim of the star-lightMy love is wan-dring in star flightI know he'll findIn star-clustered reach-esLove, strange loveA Star-wo-man teach-es.There's a second verse, but it's just too painful to type. Rodenberry himself has to take the blame for those lyrics.This was a great trip down memory lane, though a few of these shows were before my time. (I'm glad something still is...)And now...since I suddenly know enough TV trivia to bore the pants off everyone in the entire universe, here are some questions for you:1) You probably remember Ralph and Alf, the brother and sister carpenters from Green Acres. Who was the sister? (view spoiler)[Ralph (hide spoiler)]2) How was Sheriff Andy Taylor related to his deputy, Barney Fife?(view spoiler)[They were cousins. (hide spoiler)]3) What's a double-barreled sling shot?(view spoiler)[The Beverly Hillbillies way of saying "bra." (hide spoiler)]4) Which member of Crosby, Stills and Nash once auditioned to be one of The Monkees, but was turned down?(view spoiler)[Stephen Stills (hide spoiler)]5) What is the ONLY TV theme song to ever hit #1 on the pop charts?(view spoiler)['Welcome Back, Kotter' by John Sebastion. It sold more than a million copies in 1976. (hide spoiler)]So, there you have it. A book crammed with some of the most memorable tunes ever written, songs that were occasionally much, much better than the show they were introducing.Now, sing with me on this one:Happy trails to you,Until we meet again.Happy trails to you, Keep smilin' until then.
