When it comes to television show theme songs, they’re just not what they used to be. There are a few shows out there today that offers a theme song that just sticks in your head. In the 90′s, though, there’s no shortage of amazing television theme songs.
From The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to 90210, here are 10 shows that constantly had us humming their intros through the ’90′s:
Friends probably has one of the most iconic theme songs. Did anyone else try to always clap at the exact same time? This could’ve been just me.
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Hands down the most covered to this day is Will Smith’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air rap. Most recently, Will got Alfonso Ribeiro and DJ Jazzy Jeff together while in London with his son Jaden for this little reunion.
Boy Meets World
Years later, we have to admit Uncle Jesse is still a total babe. No wonder Jennifer Lawrence told Conan O’Brian that she was like a “perverted guy” when she spotted John Stamos at a party.
But looking back at old photos, it’s kind of difficult to explain why everyone had a crush on Michelle Tanner’s cool, guitar playing uncle. Because how you explain the allure of a lamé shirt? Or impeccably feathered hair? You really can’t; not now, not ever. But hey, what happened has happened and here are some of John Stamos’ most embarrassing looks.

When you think about the 80s and 90s you probably think of shoulder pads, big hair, mullets and guys with frosted tips (ick). I think we can all agree none of these beauty trends should EVER make a comeback. Still, the decade gave us a lot of great TV shows and with the latest news of a Boy Meets World reboot, it’s time to take out your scrunchies and crop tops and get a little nostalgic.
What shows would you like to see return?
Here are 10 shows from the 80s and 90s that need a reunion:
Blossom jumpstarted Joey Lawrence’s music career (I still have the cassette), along with Mayim Bialik’s acting career. She now plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the Big Bang Theory. The fact that she gave the world “WOAH!” is all I need to know. If this Old Navy Blossom commercial is any indication, a reunion would be like old times.
Freaks and Geeks
High school isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be, which is why Judd Apatow knew what he took on Freaks and Geeks. Focusing on timeless issues like bullying and peer pressure, a reboot of this show would restonate with today’s teens. The show launched the careers of Jason Segel who now plays Marshall on How I met your Mother, Seth Rogen and James “I Can Do Everything” Franco (both also starred in Pineapple Express), Linda Cardellini who was in ER for seven seasons and the adorkable John Francis Daley, who plays Dr. Sweets in Bones.
My So Called Life
Before becoming a CIA agent in Homeland, Claire Danes was a regular 15-year-old dealing with the ups and downs of being young in My so Called Life. Like Freaks and Geeks, this show dealt with many timeless topics, which is why a comeback would still resonate with teens. Another notable career that was launched was Jared Leto, who not only continued acting but even went on to produce, direct, and play front-man to rock band 30 Seconds to Mars. Unfortunately, like Freaks and Geeks the show was also cancelled early and went on to become a cult classic.
After saying goodbye to the Tanners in 1995, the Olsen twins became more popular than overalls. They went on to star in Two of a Kind (Not gonna lie, I really liked that show) and A LOT of movies. There’s no question how high in demand they became. Today they are big names in fashion. Some of the best scenes in Full House came courtesy of Michelle and TV’s coolest uncle, Jesse. Like this gem, where we are taught how NOT to change a diaper.

Tom Hanks performed the most badass slam poem about the 90s television show Full House on Jimmy Fallon. His smooth talking spoken word monologue about the Tanner residence is probably the most insightful thing you’ll hear all morning and will fill you with welcome nostalgia.
While Hanks’ black turtleneck and pants make the whole thing legit, his moustache adds a certain dignity to his retelling of DJ Tanner calling a radio station for free concert tickets. He goes on to the climax of the poem: “This house full of men. This full house of men.” That’s deep man, real deep [snaps fingers].

Pack away the sandals and take out the boots
Saturday marked the first day of fall. Now I’m kind of depressed because I can no longer wear my flats without my feet freezing. Get yourself a pair of cute moccasin boots before the snow starts to fall. Then we can move onto Uggs… but not quite yet. [inspiration-fashion]
Full House reunion
I’ve seen every episode of Full House..about ten times each. It’s hard to believe it’s already been 25 years since the first episode aired. The cast got together on the weekend and even tweeted out some adorbz pics/videos. Ugh, that takes me back!! [a-v-a-n]
Wait..where was Michelle Tanner?
The Olsen twins better have a good excuse for NOT showing up. [kidsinthe90s]
Arm candy for days
If there’s one thing I’ve become obsessed with, it’s bracelets. You can find a whole bunch of DIY designs online that are super easy to make. Once you get the hang out it, you can start selling them to your friends and family. Who doesn’t like a little bit of income doing something they love? [toodles2ubitches]
A little piece of advice
Not only are fraternal twins Megan and Liz amazing singers, they give out great advice. If anyone’s looking for a couple of role models, these are the girls for you. [thirteen-fearless]

“LOST” had one of the biggest following when it ran on ABC for six season. It was dark, mysterious, suspenseful and edgy. Everyone loved talking about the show as much as they actually liked watching the show.
Would “LOST” still be a smash hit if it were edited into a ’90s sitcom? Thanks to The Huffington Post, we can now see the more family oriented side of the show if it looked more like “Full House”. The edited version even used the same theme song as the ’90s show. The results are quite hysterical.
“Jodie was amazing and is doing great,” Coyle tells PEOPLE. “We are now the proud, excited parents of Miss Beatrix Carlin Sweetin Coyle.”
Beatrix made her debut at 7 lbs., 4 oz. and 19 inches long.
“We’re already madly in love with Beatrix and are so grateful for the support from our family and friends. And we can’t wait for her big sister Zoie to meet her,” the couple tell PEOPLE.
Looks like Jodie is going to have a “Full House” of her own (this is where a laugh track would be inserted).
28-year-old actress Jodie Sweetin is working on a Full House of her own. People.com reports that Sweetin is pregnant again and due sometime later this year. The father is her boyfriend of one year, Morty Coyle.
Sweetin already has one child – a daughter, Zoie, with her ex-husband, Cody Herpin.
Although the actress has struggled with addiction in the past, as People.com reports, her rep says that Sweetin is “in a good place” and is “looking forward to moving on with her life and she’s just happy to be a mom.”
She’s just got to pop out a few more and she’ll be well on her way to recreating the Tanner household.
Candace Cameron Bure just can’t seem to escape the Tanner name.
It’s been almost 20 years since “Full House” first went to air, but Cameron Bure is still connected to the Tanners. Even though she’s now 33 years old with a husband and three kids, and starring on a new ABC Family TV show, the last name that defined her childhood acting career seems to follow her wherever she goes.
“[It’s] kind of ironic,” she said of the fact that her character Summer on ABC’s new show “Make It or Break It” was engaged to a character named Steve Tanner. “I was like, ‘Seriously? Really guys?’ And they were like, ‘What?’ And I waited one, two, three seconds. Then everyone was like, ‘OH!’”
“I will never escape the Tanner name!” she added with a laugh.
If you grew up in the late ’80s or early ’90s, you know Cameron Bure as the teenaged DJ Tanner. “Full House,” one of the most popular family sitcoms on TV at the time, gave Cameron Bure her first dose of stardom and success.
“It was such a huge part of my life,” said the California native, who’s been acting since she was five. “It’s just been an incredible family show. I loved everyone that I worked with and had a great experience. I made friendships that will last forever. I was so happy to have been a part of that show.”
And if Cameron Bure ever manages to slip away from the public eye without DJ recognition, her son is quick to inform them.
Jodie Sweetin filed papers Wednesday for legal separation from her husband of 16 months, Cody Herpin.
The couple recently announced that they were working on a reality show together, which Sweetin said, at the time, was going to follow the couple and their new baby, now 7 months, Zoie.
According to People, Herpin was “dumbfounded” and said that Sweetin took Zoie and left the couple’s home. He expressed concern, in part, because of Sweetin’s former addiction to methamphetamine. Sweetin entered rehab in 2005 for the addiction. She met Herpin in May 2007, and they married just two months later.
Sweetin is best known for her role as Stephanie Tanner on the sitcom Full House.
Jodie Sweetin is enjoying motherhood to seven week old daughter Zoie, which is a drastic role change for the former “Full House” star who previously battled a meth addiction.
“You look at your baby and think, ‘Wow, I did that.’ It’s really amazing,” Sweetin, 26, tells People magazine.
At 22-years-old, Sweetin tried the drug and six months later, developed a daily addiction. In 2005, Sweetin was hospitalized after a night of partying and entered treatment. In May 2007, Sweetin met Cody Herpin, a film transportation coordinator and after two months of dating, the couple wed.
Sweetin was previously married to LAPD officer Shaun Holguin, but the pair split soon after Sweetin left treatment for her addiction.
Sweetin is best known for playing Stephanie Tanner on the popular series “Full House.”
Jodie Sweetin, AKA Stephanie “How Rude!” Tanner from “Full House,” is making a return to television.
The actress will be the host of Fuse TV’s “Dance-Off Pants-Off Best Of” series premiering on July 18 on Fuse TV.
The network has launched a web site where you can find Stephanie Tanner quotes, as well as a place where you can send Sweetin questions of your own to be answered.
According to a press release, the new show was called the “dumbest show on television” by TV Guide and “brilliant and low brow” by New York Magazine.
