Best TV Theme Song: Round 1 - Part 1

So you might be aware of the fact that I've been furloughed from work. As a result, I've been finding dumb projects to keep me occupied. And, well, Here's one of 'em! Starting a project I'm calling "Bracketeering." Just creating these random brackets and having people on my social media vote on them. Figured I'd do it here.

The first one, as the title suggests, is the Best TV Theme Song! I thought it would be difficult coming up with 64 theme songs to fit a full March Madness-style bracket, but it actually wound up difficult to whittle it down to 64. I tried to blend my favorites, with classic and iconic themes, with really popular or well known themes. (And I omitted The Wire because I couldn't decide on which season's version to use. Blargh.)

Anyway, I'm gonna put the match-ups of one "region" first round match ups, and then below the list, I'll embed YouTube videos of each song if you need a refresher. Just post the list of your eight selections from each match up for now! After a few days or a week, I'll tally them up! (NOTE: All match-ups were randomly determined via a die roll.)

Here's the list of match-ups:

The Simpsons. v. Rugrats

The X-Files. v. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

Ren & Stimpy. v. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Sanford & Son. v. Sesame Street

Duck Tales. v. The Addams Family

Hey Dude. v. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Captain Planet. v. Futurama

Teen Titans. v. Hey Arnold

Below are the songs themselves if you are unfamiliar with any.

Sesame Street, but the 1998-2001 version
Duck Tales
Captain Planet - Wow, this is just so 80s...

Some honorable mentions I feel should be listed (hopefully in the next section):

Hawaii Five-O
I Love Lucy
The Golden Girls
The Greatest American Hero
Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire
Reading Rainbow
Code Lyoko
Batman (both the 1960s show and the Animated Series... for very different reasons)
Pokemon (we all know which one)
Kim Possible
Danger Mouse (reboot)

Some of them will be! It was really hard to pick just 64, and to diversify the pool. Could easily have made it a bracket of 128!

Anything not in the tournament is not me making a statement about the quality of the that theme. Just had to balance a lot of different kinds of theme songs from different eras and of different appeal.

Realize I should just make a note: I'm functioning as the tiebreaker.
