* Honestly, is there one among us who hasn't been subjected to someone "singing" this just to be obnoxious?


Added DiffLines:

* Due to "Think!" being easy to remember, easy to whistle or hum, and exactly 30 seconds long, it is frequently used to approximate lengths of time too long for counting by seconds to be practical.
* Honestly, is there one among us who hasn't been subjected to someone "singing" this just to be obnoxious?

* Used at one point in [[TheFilmOfTheSeries the feature film adaptation]] of ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies''', when Elly May mentions that Beverly Hills has smog. Granny asks, "What's a smog?", and as the Clampetts ponder the matter, a truncated version of the original "Think!" cue plays, after which Jethro deduces: "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint I reckon it's a small hog.]]"

* ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' itself capitalized on this by changing its own theme tune to an upbeat remix of "Think!" in 1984. Various other themes had been used during the Art Fleming-hosted versions of the show (the original 1964-75 theme was called "Take Ten" and was written by Merv Griffin's wife at the time, Julann).
** One year's college tournament was hosted at Yale University, and had Final Jeopardy for the tournament's finale accompanied by an ''a cappella'' performance of the song by Yale's ''a cappella'' ensemble, the Whiffenpoofs.
* A teacher in Webcomic/{{Avalon}} once played this during a test.

Using the Jeopardy Thinking Music, or a MusicalPastiche of it, is common when stupid characters are stumped by a simple question. Briefly replaced by the ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' {{sting}}s.

Creator/MervGriffin, the creator of ''Jeopardy!'' (and sister show ''Series/WheelOfFortune''), composed the well-known "Think" music. He [[SelfPlagiarism self-plagiarized]] it from "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZ14PFZNoF0 A Time for Tony]]", which he wrote as a lullaby for his son; the original "A Time for Tony" later became a prize cue on ''Wheel'' in the 1980s.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'' used a sort of variant of the theme: When Tulio asks Miguel to think carefully about what Chel meant to both of them, a little bell can be heard as if symbolizing Miguel's thought process. When he comes to his conclusion ("Chel is... off-limits?"), a bell goes off like a game-show timer.
