Ten TV Shows With Themes Sung By A Main Character

Updated on January 15, 2020

Farm Living Was The Life For Him, Not So Much For Her


As 2019 came to an end, many publications looked back on the famous people who passed away during that year. We lost numerous musical artists, including Ginger Baker, Dr. John, and Leon Redbone.

Suffering perhaps even more memorable losses was the film industry, which bade farewell to the likes of Tim Conway, Rip Torn and Dihan Carroll. All three were preceded in death by one of the most famous actresses to conquer both the silver screen and television, the unforgettable Doris Day.

Not only did she work herself all the way up from a small farm near Cincinnati, but she also managed to flourish her acting skill in comedy and drama alike. Day also became the first star, male or female, to sing the theme of her own television series.

That song, "Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be Will Be)", grew so contagious that nearly every single person in America now understood at least two words of French. During the ensuing decades several other characters rook on the vocals for the themes of their TV shows, and here are ten of the most famous.


After a stint as the little sister of Drake and Josh, Miranda Cosgrove got to star and sing the theme of this series.

Archie and Edith Bunker

Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton, the heads of All in the Family, opened the show on a piano stool singing the duet "Those Were The Days."


Linda Lavin's title character left home and got a job waitressing at Mel's Diner, while also proving herself an apt singer who introduces the show.

Oliver Wendell and Lisa Douglas

Green Acres, a spin off from the show about some hillbillies moving to Beverly, opens with the two stars Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor singing their different views about the move to Hooterville.

The Brady Bunch

All six of the kids undertook the task of performing the show's introduction to a story of a lovely lady and a man named Brady, each who had three kids of their own.

Tori Vega

Victoria Justice, the star of the series, does the lead vocals on the theme song "Make It Happen."

The Partridge Family

David Cassidy as Keith and Shirley Jones as Mom share the vocals on the popular theme song, "Come On Get Happy."

The Monkees

When they said that they were coming down the street and getting funny looks from everyone they met, the quartet backed lead vocalist Mickey Dolenz on the intro.

Hannah Montana

Miley Cyrus, the title character. kicked off the show by performing "The Best of Both Worlds.

Lizzie McGuire

"If You Believe" is performed by Hillary Duff, the actress who stars as the title character.
