    First vote to 8 wins. 12 hour time limit.

    You would judge this not according to how much you like the movie or tv show itself, but how good you think the musical theme is. So a crappy comic book movie could have a cracking theme, and a fantastic movie could have a crappy or extremely generic theme.

    I'll try to provide YouTube links to the music as much as possible so you can listen.

    Are Television and movies combined or are they separate categories?

    Well some are more memorable than others, but some are still pretty good even if they haven't achieved iconic status and are instantly recognisable when you hear them.

    And if people don't PM me, then I'm just going to make up the brackets from the 70+ themes I already have and seed them as I see fit.

    I think it will be all combined because eventually when the brackets are whittled down to the final, you could end up with a movie vs TV show anyway. So it's just seeing which is the favourite theme overall.

    Those two won't qualify because they're not based on a comic book. They're just a Hanna Barbera cartoon. And they're both the same song, just two different versions (one a cover of the original) and not two distinct themes.

    And are all these suggestions your list which you wish to submit or are you just randomly listing your favourites like these other threads which aren't tournaments where people list things?

    Can we include this, even though it technically wasn't in the movie?

    I'd like to nominate the Duck Tales theme. (based off Uncle Scrooge comics)

    Those theme-writers at Disney knew what they were doing back then.
