Cue Jazzy Theme Music (Part 1 of 4)

The theme music to Jonny Quest is easily one of the best TV intros of all time. When I was in college, a jillion years ago, you could hear the marching band practice from my friend's dorm room, and one day they did an amazing rendition of the Johnny Quest theme. I actually went back to my friend's place several times hoping to hear them practice it again, but without any luck. Yes, I am a dork! But in my defense, that was definitely the only time in my life I was enthusiastic about music from a marching band.

This is Jonny Quest himself, accompanied by his tenacious bulldog, Bandit. You might have an educated guess as to what the next three posts will offer!

I gotta agree with you Comrade...that JQ theme is pretty cool and fun to listen too. I like when tv show intros have no words...just good 'ole instruments. Some of my fave intros are from M*A*S*H and Little House On The Prairie. Now for this sketch,....NICE!! It's funny when i look at Jonny's face...i see a young Conan 'O Brian. :D Good work man.

and the tv theme to M*A*S*H had no lyrics, indeed, but the movie version did... and quite bitterly depressing ones, too. but i digress...
