It’s one TV show opening up another TV show!
The opening music to your favourite TV show is always enough to stir the memories, but the internet has a habit of tweaking those thoughts very slightly.
In the words of Humphrey Lyttleton, what happens when you take one tune, and graft it over another turn, or in this case a TV show…
That’s right “One TV Show To The Tune Of Another!” Here are some of the best!
10. Dallas / Star Wars
Eighties shoulder pads not on show, but plenty character defining moments – and we’ll see those a few more times as we go through the list.
9. Groundhog Day / MacGyver
Given it’s the same in every episode, this is a rather fitting reworking of a great comedy classic… and Groundhog Day.
8. Different Strokes / The Dorm That Dripped Blood
Take one creepy B-movie horror flick, and change nothing about the music. Now add this to the happy go lucky visuals from Different Strokes opening… Hitchcock would have been proud.
7. Airworlf / Darth Vader and the Empire
Here’s the one that started it off in the office, with a Twitter comment of “this is what the internet was made for!”
6. Battlestar Galactica / Star Trek Deep Space Nine
There is a common connection already in writer Ron D Moore, but this makes the dark turn that DS9 took even more apparent.
5. The A-Team / Star Trek
Cheese meets cheese in the best bit of action since the Mozarella Feast at your local pizza emporium. Gotta love a bit of the Shatner at any point in your life!
4. Magnum / Han Solo
Just sheer class, with everyone’s favourite bounty hunter, who we know fired first.
3. Battlestar Galactica / Battlestar Galactica
Okay, so one show to the tune of another show, that’s actually the same show, but with a different story to tell that everyone finally realised was the same story as the first show. Capiche?
2. The Muppet Show / Electric Six’s Gay Bar
I know the second tune isn’t a TV show, but honestly I can’t watch Henson again without this going through my head. It puts a new light on the Swedish Chef, I tell you.
1. The Flumps / Rainbow
And finally, just a bit of fun in the studio with your childhood heroes from the UK
