Few additions:

"Perry Mason" - great show with great theme.
"Rocky & Bullwinkle" - immediate favorite.
"Around The World With Willy Fog" - nice friendly singsong intro & nice rolling credits song in the end. Esp. intro.
"Tail Spin" - mischievous, joyful, fun. "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" meets "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" but better.
&
CBS Radio Mystery Theatre - starts with long nerve-racking, nails-to-glass high creaking noise, it then shifts to bass, slow, dark doomed 3-note music. In short - cool! 3D

Three TV faves and their composers:

The Wild Wild West - Richard Markowitz
The Price Is Right Theme - Edd Kalehoff (or, Shelia Cole)
Green Acres - Vic Mizzy


Special Mentions:
Gotham City Municiple Swing Band - Neal Hefti. Theme for Bob Wilkins' various Northern California TV shows.
Syncopated Clock -  Leroy Anderson. Opening theme for Valley Playhouse (pretty sure), a local show out of Sacramento, CA.

Here's a good one by the great John  Barry that is mostly forgotten, probably because the 1971 series only lasted one season. His theme for The Persuaders:

Great theme!

Hard to tell whether this one has been linked yet. Great, great instrumental (guitarfool will agree). It's the theme from Route 66:

This is cool, too, but different. It's the theme from a US TV series I only discovered earlier in the week, BoJack Horseman:

Lots of good stuff mentioned here people, nice!

This for Alex as he remembered it and it is awesome - Batman Animated Series

What about most hated TV themes? Mine has to be the Friends theme 'I'll Be There For You' - if I ever have to hear that shitty fucking song ever again I will go on a stabbing frenzy!

I realize I'm replying to a really old post, but if you're still out there lurking Paulos, I was talking about the series with the REAL Batman, the late great Mayor of Quahog, Adam West. You know, "na na na na na na na BATMAN!"
