31. Batman

Aired: January 12, 1966 - March 14, 1968 (ABC)
Theme Song: Neal Hefti "Batman Theme"

Nowadays, the Dark Knight is no joke—he'll murk any joker who gets in his path. But back in the carefree 1960s, the Caped Crusader was a mellow fellow, as seen in the campy Batman. The show's theme song, a guilty pleasure pop culture artifact if there ever was one, oozes with good-natured appeal, as if a teenaged garage band got together one afternoon after watching their favorite show and banged out a homemade superhero tribute. Who needs words when you can just mumble along with chords? After hearing "Dah Dah Dah Dah Dah Dah Dah Dah BATMAN!" once, you'll never get the jingle out of your head.
