* ''Theatre/TheSoldiersTale'' begins each act with "The Soldier's March," which commences the rhyming narration before the curtain rises over a steady drumbeat. The reprise at the start of the second act has slightly different lyrics and a brief pause for extra narration.

* Downplayed with the ''WesternAnimation/ThreeTwoOnePenguins'' theme song. Part of it says " 'Bout a rocket ship and flightless birds", which gives the viewer a little idea of what the show is about.

** Technically this trope but with no actual show to expose [[Series/TheAquabatsSuperShow at the time]], "Theme Song" tells a rather intricate {{backstory}} for the band before mentioning that [[ViewersAreGoldfish they're the Aquabats]] a few times.
