Rank 'Em: '80s Cartoon Theme Songs

Rank 'Em returns with a countdown in podcast form! This time we will tackle the entire decade and rank our favorite cartoon theme songs. Thanks to a recent Twitter battle over what themes were best, Jason invites a guest to set the record straight about some personal favorites and why they are worthy of a Top 5 ranking.

In case you need a refresher, Rank 'Em features host Jason and a guest who put together a Top 5 list on a specific topic. On the podcast, we will reveal our choices along with a few honorable mentions and give an explanation on the choices. Remember, Rank 'Em lists are always based on our personal favorites and not what "should" be the Top 5 based on popularity.

For this episode, Jason welcomes first time guest Brian Cave of OldSchoolEvil.com to reveal our Top 5 cartoon theme songs. Brian's list is also posted on his blog if you care to find out his choices before listening to show. Otherwise, be ready for several intergalactic themes, a couple songs that sound like they came from the '50s, and some of Disney's greatest hits.

Let's Rank 'Em!
