[[caption-width-right:325: Why else do you think it was called [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Looney]] ''[[MeaningfulName Tunes]]''?]]

->''"And your second wish?"''\\
''"I have just the thing! I wish I had my own theme music!"''
-->-- Peter Griffin of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', being very, very meta

Cartoons are notorious for having [[EarWorm catchy theme songs]]. But some 'toons take it a step further.

[[folder:[=DreamWorks=] Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'':
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gur8ccqrQ9c When You Believe]]", the duet of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Especially the multilanguage version, which features 27 versions of When You Believe from around the world. It really shows how music is the universal language.
** "Deliver us! / Send a shepherd to shepherd us / and deliver us / to the Promised Land!" And the CallBack at the very, ''very'' end to Ofra Haza's OneWomanWail of "Deliver us!".
** All the songs. But [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oX-Kcx2BAc Plagues]] is especially so. Yahweh is a scary, scary god. There's the part of that song with the DarkReprise duet between Moses and Rameses. Definitely one of the all-time highlights of animated musicals. The fact that Ralph Fiennes actually sings Rameses' part is awesome! And the choir speaking for God. "I send the swarm / I send the horde / Thus saith the Lord!" The song is so good it actually makes you [[JerkassWoobie sympathize with the pharaoh]]. His brother has turned against him. Now an all-powerful deity rains fire down on his land. The pharaoh's response is to [[TheDeterminator refuse surrender, no matter what the cost]]. Sure, it hurts everyone involved, but one cannot help but admit that Rameses has got [[MagnificentBastard style.]]
*** Say what you will of dubbed films, but "The Plagues" in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBqP94RwKq4 Japanese]] is pretty awesome too. Especially Japanese!Rameses.
** After the 'Through Heaven's Eyes' scene, when Moses walks out of his and Tzipporah's tent to go a-shepherding, the piece of music that accompanies "this is my home" in 'All I Ever Wanted' plays as he looks out at the landscape.
** Instrumentally, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfrrHkZhNLs Goodbye Brother]] is the most epic piece of music in ages from a movie. The ominous choir and orchestra combo at the beginning, the mournful cello solo, the single woman's voice -- it has it all.
** "The Mission", the score that plays right after the Burning Bush scene.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4Kph6UKQJM River Lullaby]].
** "Playing With the Big Boys Now" is a good song, sung by Steve Martin and Martin Short, who seem to have fun with it.
** Another instrumental piece, the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_E_pMCX5M4 Red Sea]]" is utterly beautiful...before becoming terrifying.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPb2FqFN7-A Through Heaven's Eyes]]" is so often overlooked. It's encouraging and warm and beautiful, which is nice considering that after this particular song, the movie gets a bit darker...
** Speaking of overlooked, how about "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN4wswGT9Vg I Will Get There]]," the ''other'' end credits song?
** Music/HansZimmer's "Chariot Race" is a standout cue which annoyingly isn't on the soundtrack album but ''did'' get released on a [[http://www.hans-zimmer.com/index.php?rub=disco&id=300 Collector's Edition CD]].
%%** "It Is Only Beginning," especially the latter part that plays when Moses turns the river to blood.
%%** "The Burning Bush".
* ''WesternAnimation/Shrek2'':
** The use of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iovcnjuf2WU "Holding Out for a Hero"]] was particularly awesome, especially with the Mongo scene going on in the background. SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for the cast, definitely.
** Creator/AntonioBanderas and Creator/EddieMurphy's duet of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOTlMUQzJrw "Livin' La Vida Loca"]] at the end.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KruvKcrD0A "Fairytale"]]; no matter how irreverent and sarcastic the films may be, its beautiful BootstrappedTheme still fits and captures the heart and soul of the story.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVYQcGQpyoM Oogway Ascends]].
** Tai Lung's Theme, which appears at various points throughout "Tai Lung Escapes", "The Bridge", and "Shifu vs. Tai Lung." (And all the cool kung fu fighting music!)
%%** "Panda Po", "Hero", and "Sacred Pool of Tears" are also [[ShapedLikeItself legendarily]] [[{{Buffyspeak}} legendary]] pieces.
%%** Cee-Lo Green's rendition of "Kung Fu Fighting" during the credits.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq3EKVxYtpk Po Finds the Truth]], a beautiful and haunting piece in the same vein as "Oogway Ascends".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS3vRuZBlLA Zen Ball Master]], an epic song for an epic battle.
** Many are expanded or shrunk versions of pieces from the first OS. Though changes sometimes made them even better. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbNE35ttc0w Ancient China / Story Of Shen]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaVymVNAUE8 Inner Peace]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q-awrvcsj0 My Fists Hunger For Justice]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPNmlhiXauk Save Kung Fu]]" ([[EvenBetterSequel epic-er]] version of the already epic music "Sacred Pool Of Tears"), among many others.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq3EKVxYtpk Po Finds The Truth]]"! Everything in that track from 1:00 on is absolutely chilling!
*** The powerful overture starting at 3:55 as Po realizes that Fate balanced the scales after his loss with a life filled with new fathers, friends and soaring achievements he never dreamed he would gain.
*** The part that played during a certain tearjerking moment: [[spoiler:Po's mother hiding baby Po in a radish crate and then drawing away the wolves and Shen.]]
** If you prefer more action-y music, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS3vRuZBlLA Zen Ball Master]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvpNlbetJOI More Cannons!]]" are for you.
** Of a completely different kind, but still awesome, here's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ij93GNohAY Gongmen Jail]]" or "Funky Kung Fu Panda"!
** Also in the "funky" category is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqCJNsXnfUY Dumpling Warrior Remix]]", which plays over the end credits.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3''
** Not surprisingly, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvJBn_2BpyU "The Dragon Warrior"]] is one of the best tracks of them all.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a97bfI8-DK4 "Jaded"]] is another great track.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' has a wonderful soundtrack. Particularly the Main Titles, Flip Flop and Fly, and every piece of music in the movie after and including Rocky, A Fake All Along. One would be surprised how [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFR3Fmx2BP4 awesome]] the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUDCbOVmSdU soundtrack]] to [[WesternAnimation/ChickenRun a film about chickens]] can get.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpiritStallionOfTheCimarron'' is almost a soundtrack of awesome.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYBQBGcYHa0 You Can't Take Me]]" and the instrumental "Run Free".
** The opening track, "Homeland", and its reprise, which becomes the ending song "I Will Always Return". Crosses SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic with both Heartwarming and TearJerker.
** Music/BryanAdams' RhymingWithItself problems aside, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzRtj9a357Y Get Off My Back]]" is ''badass''.
** The way "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEKVT9cvddk Sound the Bugle Now]]" segways from TearJerker to SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming|Moments}} [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Awesomeness]] is ''beautiful''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' had Will.I.Am's version of "I Like To Move It".
** The opening theme "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcPoyqoanRY Zooster's Breakout]]" was incredible.
** And of course, Music/HansZimmer provided this SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for Vitaly: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic-x5q6Ra8I Light the Hoop on Fire!]]
** As well as Chantel [=DuBois=]'s {{Leitmotif}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XA0XRhYDEvo Game On]].
** The final battle combines Dubois and Vitaly's themes with epic chase music.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8bBziwkrSA "The Trail We Blaze]], the most beautiful song in the whole thing. That's no surprise, since it was written and sung by ''Sir Elton John''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYprdmE1dFc "Tough to be a God"]], ''especially'' the climax.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Qa1BkMNYs "Save El Dorado"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Dp22KRD5zM "Someday Out of the Blue"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzHQgy-ED8g "Friends Never Say Goodbye"]], a heartwrenching ditty about a dissolving partnership, featuring, of all bands, the Backstreet Boys.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1vYowrd2XE "Without Question"]], which has to rank as one of the most beautiful songs Sir Elton has ever written. The melody is absolutely gorgeous.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' Even when looking at the choice of regular music (all the way from AC/DC to Guns 'n' Roses) you can see they knew what they were doing. But the soundtrack itself is also made of awesomeness.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFBM84clR70 Ollo]] 'Evil Lair' and 'Black Mamba.' And if [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LucLOSvN9ns Rejection In the Rain]] doesn't at least make you sad... Well, it's a good soundtrack. It was made by Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe, for god's sake!
** One word: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diOWLKwxsv8 "PRESENTATION!"]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrMmO2j9Yw8 Giant Blue Head]] is pretty good.
* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie'' has the [[https://youtu.be/BJgL9pbDLBE Captain Underpants Theme]], by none other than Music/WeirdAlYankovic!

[[folder:Don Bluth]]
* The ''AwesomeMusic/TheLandBeforeTime'' series has its own page.
* ''AwesomeMusic/{{Anastasia}}'' has its own page.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePebbleAndThePenguin'' - the lyrics to the songs may be insipid, but the tunes themselves are cool. Sounds like everything else by [[GuiltyPleasures Barry Manilow]]. Is this statement a TakeThat or a [[{{Zordauch}} guilty]] ShoutOut? Though it's agreed on that the VillainLoveSong ('Don't make me laugh') was the best part of the movie
* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' has several, though the best come from that or ''Fievel Goes West''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRjb8sMjYu8 "Somewhere Out There"]]; it doesn't matter which [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wcuZN5PhpQ version]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1ngmtvZl3E "Dreams to Dream"]]. There is an "official" version, but the movie one hits much harder.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8MxODV4k7c The Girl You Left Behind]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8olqBbr-3r4 A Duo]] for much awesomeness.
* Most if not all of the music from ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE''. Not just the songs in the movie ("Over My Head", "Cosmic Castaway", "It's My Turn to Fly", all awesome); the score of the movie, composed by Graeme Revell. In particular, the music playing during the scenes near the death of Earth and [[spoiler:the birth of Planet Bob]], which underscore the scenes perfectly.
** And for those who want to hear the most awesome music ever, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hCUi98D3XU here]] (but beware the spoilers that piece of music will bring).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrsCUyPaCdg "Yer Beautiful, Baby"]] from Don Bluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina}}''. Yeah, yeah, the movie's a shallow Disney rip-off and it reeks of [[TastesLikeDiabetes sweetness]], but godammit if that opening bass line isn't awesome. Then the vocals kick in...
** It may be a blatant rip-off of "A Whole New World" from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuL21jFZ9fg "Let Me Be Your Wings."]]
* Jerry Goldsmith's brilliant score to ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'', especially the cue that plays during the film's climax.
* ''WesternAnimation/BartokTheMagnificent'' had loads of upbeat, fun music. Highlights include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwcVFMJvlN0 the title song]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVDtm7ff2NY A Possible Hero]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt3USF3bVZU Someone's in My House]].
* ''WesternAnimation/RockADoodle''[='=]s songs may be dorky, but Norway's {{Woolseyism}} makes the songs really worth watching the film for.

* Studio composer Hoyt Curtin and his contributions to the various Hanna-Barbera shows' soundtracks deserves a special mention.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/YogiBear'':
%%** The classic Yogi Bear theme song.
%%** The "St. Louis" song from the movie ''Hey There, It's Yogi Bear''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'':
%%** The series' theme song, which comes with two variants: the original version for the 60s run, and the 80s version (with more synthesizers/sound effects from the series).
%%** "Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah" from the original series' Jet Screamer episode. Plus the cover by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uPsC4ittAg Violent Femmes]]. (As long as you pay no mind to the hipster comments throughout.)
%%** "You and Me" by Music/{{Tiffany}} from [[Film/JetsonsTheMovie the movie]].
%%* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'':
%%** The classic "Meet the Flintstones" theme song.
%%** "Car Hop Song" (aka Burger on a Bun) Both the initial version and Wilma and Betty's snarky reprise at the episode's end.
%%** Hoagy Carmicahel's "Yabba Dabba Doo."
%%** "There's a place I know / Where the hipsters go / Called Bedrock... / Twitch! Twitch!"
* ''WesternAnimation/MagillaGorilla'': The show's theme song is a classic. Even ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' have referenced it!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAtomAntShow'': The show's theme song is narrated by Ted Cassidy (Lurch from "The Addams Family"). ("Up and at 'em, it's Atom Ant!")

[[folder:Warner Bros. Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheLegendOfTheVampire'':
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MguFf8qKzcc "Getaway Yeah"]], a killer rock song that perfectly complements the chase scene.
** All of the Hex Girls songs are pretty good, easy to see why they're so popular both in-universe and with fans of the franchise.
* ''AwesomeMusic/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' has its own page.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Me5EvGoGDW4 When there's trouble, you know who to call...]]
** Blink and you'll miss it, but when the Titans make a comeback during the big fight in the GrandFinale "Titans Together", a badass remix of the main theme song plays, slower-paced and instrumental-only.
** Everything from "Aftershock Part 2". Seriously. Just... just ''listen'' to it.
** There's a gorgeous bit of piano music during the scene in "How Long Is Forever?" where [[spoiler:Nightwing calls the Titans on their communicators, and it seems like all three of them are unable to come to his aid]]. It's just [[TearJerker heartbreaking]].
** Terra's theme (especially the rendition that plays during her run through the obstacle course) is pretty darn awesome.
%%** The scene in "Sisters" where Starfire launches her attack against Blackfire is accompanied by some awesome music.
%%** "Meet Saiko Tek", "Trooper's Tour", "Bar Fight", and "Final Battle" from the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'' OST.
%%** The music that plays as Raven marches towards her destiny in "The End Part I".
%%** The music for both of the chase scenes involving TheMadMod (in "Mad Mod" and "Revolution") - respectively a hyperactive Puffy Ami Yumi number and the crazed "(Raining Down On) The Fourth Of July Parade" - definitely qualifies here. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QalBcDIhv7I And the song they didn't use.]]
%%** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWaWvQuIVMI main theme]] naturally.
%%** The theme in the Red X fight from "X".
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo!''
** The remixed version of the old show's theme song worked great for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9ep34ULG3w the new theme song.]]
** It may have not been written for the show, but hearing Beast Boy singing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEmSPddTPmg "Fade Away" to Terra]], was one of the show's best moments.
** The parody of the old Titans theme song, in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60Fd0AXpM2M Dodgeball episode.]] Robin actually likes to sing the old song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdRa_LJ5Mis in the shower.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dmaVpz_AhM The pie song]], which also happened to be the first song of the show.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nui8k152yak "Mean what you Say"]] proves how well Creator/TaraStrong sings.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33I5zKr6HDw The real boy song]], had so many cameos from DC Comics heroes, and villans.
%%** The OST on the radio [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95VTu4Dfag8 in "Driver's Ed".]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-hBKPpPaAI The Uncle Jokes rap.]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Gj95m0CR5I Annoying and Awesome, at the same time.]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_88DYWrtyo "Peace and Love. Peace and Love."]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taDJb8P_iNg Y'all ready to crack some more beats?]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OWCFLm6xro The pee pee dance.]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5797Phv8cE "Night begins to SHIIINE!!"]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HrFrAspWF8 main title]] from ''Superman: Doomsday''.
* ''WesternAnimation/WhatsOperaDoc''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-uad6zBG1o "We're Tiny, We're Toony, We're all a little Loony!"]]
** Everything made by Richard Stone, from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJPFSNu_QNs Pinky and The Brain]] ("One is a genius, the other's insane!"), to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpjXFF0zIJY Freakazoid]] ("He's here to save the nation! So stay tuned to this station!)
** Speaking of ''Tiny Toons'', the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXw2imdoXi4 Around The World version]] takes the greatness of the original and makes it multilingual.
** Speaking of Spielberg creations, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDtdQ8bTvRc Yakko's World.]] Just writing the thing and making sure everything fit into place is worthy of praise.
---> "United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama, Haiti, Jamaica, Peru, Republic Dominican, Cuba, Caribbean, Greenland, El Salvador too!"
** All of Rita's songs in the ''Rita & Runt'' shorts fall under this. No surprise, considering Rita is voiced by Broadway actress Bernadette Peters.
*** In particular is the episode ''Las Miseranimals''. Yes, a parody of ''Theatre/LesMiserables''. And the songs are awesome!
** Stand outs go to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KA0TS9l_nJE The Intro]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwzdVFXJ4Fk The Monkey Song]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSvJ9SN8THE Wakko's Capitals]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGiueFRyKV8 A Quake]]: ''L.A town is falling down / While the ground / Moves around / But we won't that get us down / We're Californians!''
* ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock''. Even the villains had their own ThemeMusicPowerUp.
* ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvdMz4KJIt8 the first season intro]] [[OneWomanWail was epic]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxE6Mqr3Oo8 BEHOLD THE WIZARD! BEWARE HIS POWERS!!! UNSPEAKABLE POWERS!!!!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQbN8TFjW9I "Christmas Rules"]] from the Christmas episode, which is sung by the whole cast of characters from the show.
* This list isn't complete without "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9-7uLg-DZU Powerhouse]]", the "assembly line" music from the classic WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes shorts. Bonus points for Music/{{Rush}} doing their own rendition of it as part of their 1978 instrumental "La Villa Strangiato". Awesome on top of awesome, especially when heard live.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAj9khBzvmg intro theme]] for ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryTales'' is [[EarWorm pretty darn catchy]]. It's fun and frentic - the way [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry the cat and mouse duo should be.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'', by far the greatest movie Warner Bros. Animation has ever made, has a great soundtrack. One of the best songs is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlFWryoBnN0 The Last Giant Piece]]. It accompanies a TearJerker of the [[TearsOfJoy joyful kind]], and it is ''awesome''!
* ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha'' has its theme song, "Mucha Lucha! Mucha Lucha!" It also can be an EarWorm.
* "This Is It" from ''[[WesternAnimation/TheBugsBunnyRoadRunnerShow The Bugs Bunny Show]]'' and its successor series, ''The Bugs Bunny-Road Runner Show'' and ''The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show'' ("Overture, cut the lights...")
%%* ''[[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner The Road Runner Show]]'' theme song.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'':
** The background music for Zim and Dib's titanic, solar system-spanning conflict in "Battle of the Planets".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig30D86wd9w MEATS OF EVIL!!!!!]]
** "Ultra Peepi" theme from Hamstergeddon is an Awesome techno track. Pity it only lasted about 40 seconds.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmAU8nluSbw Zim's Christmas]] VillainSong.
** The all kinds of awesome [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-tgGwKZeko theme song.]]
** The [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments "Music" of Funny]] that is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqcn_TPu4qQ the Doom Song]]?
** "Building Montage", "In the Beginning", "One Big Video Game", "Carne Beat", "Source Music of Doom", "Gear Fight", "Tak's Theme", "It's On!", "Kitty Rally"... is there one song in this show that doesn't deserve a spot on this page?
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'':
** One particular score during "Fanning the Flames". When Danny is flying Sam towards the MonsterOfTheWeek, the series plays a relaxing rendition of the theme's song. It makes the scene all the more poignant and remains one of the most convincing moments of the Danny/Sam pairing.
** The scene in" My Brother's Keeper". After so much doubt and misery, Danny is shown flying happily as that particular rendition plays as Jazz comes to terms with knowing her brother is a hero.
** The various heroic (and villainous) renditions of the main theme are all amazing! Just watch any scene with Vlad being especially villainous.
** "[=RemEmber=]." The full version in particular, which we never actually hear in the show; it's a dark song that seems to be about how Ember died, which was apparently due to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar killing herself after discovering her boyfriend was only using her for sex]]. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids Because this is a kids' show]].
* ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'':
** "Happy Happy Joy Joy".
** The geniunely stirring anthem of the Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen.
*** In German it's even better. God, that ''harmony!''
** The classic musical stings (i.e. the "dun dun") that have appeared in just about every single show in the world.
* ''Kablam!'' has many. Mainly the awesome ska opening.
** And the first ending theme. Listen to the full version (on Retrojunk).
** That doesn't mean the second end title was bad. It was awesome!
** In fact, all of Henry and June's background music was amazing.
** June's song in "Won't Stick To Most Dental Work". That little girl (referring to June, her VA was actually 15 at the time, and still has a great voice) had a great voice. To bad there was never a musical episode with June being the lead.
** And the KaBlammer song.
** All the music in ''The Off-Beats'' was great to. It had a jazzy, ''Peanuts'' flavor to it.
** All the background music in ''Life with Loopy''.
** And all the ''Sniz & Fondue'' music! Stupid Nickelodeon. You could've made a huge set of the music on CD.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''. We have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpOH8MoGusQ Real And Scary]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNoZRjXPtQE Find Your Voice]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hf-MBJD_hTc Gimme The Wand]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=321Cf2RZC7M every]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmZ7CsVc_Ng song]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_IJVXZSLhA from]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cCvM5QXYuY the]] MusicalEpisode.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'''s Jim Lang gave us quite a few, including "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeM4lWhr39M Thinkin' It Over]]," which plays while Stinky contemplates his role as a ButtMonkey spokesperson for Yahoo soda.
** Then there's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSzEUR7h-Ew Eugene Paints It Black]]," which, yes, is about ''Eugene.''
** "What's Opera, Arnold?" Inspired by the infamous ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon "What's Opera, Doc?", this episode paid {{Homage}} to ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'', "Music/RideOfTheValkyries", and ''{{Theatre/Pagliacci}} ''([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7-D1e3QZaU Harold's]] SuperfluousSolo) by having the kids act out the major roles of ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'': Arnold as Don Jose, Ruth as Carmen, then Helga as Carmen, and Curly as Escamillo.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6taeKm2oIE I saw, I saw... your face... AND WOW!!!]]
%%* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' theme.
* The ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwN1PI2s1CY theme]] is the perfect song to pump you up for the show to come.
%%* The ''WesternAnimation/WonderPets'' music.
%%* Most, if not ALL Super Hero theme musics.
%%** ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'': He's, A man, on a mission. Armed with, high tech, ammunition...
* ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'', definitely, for its theme music, occasional songs within episodes ("Hula-Baloo", "FirePlug Ballet", etc.) and especially the music videos that ended most every episode!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'' can make genres you have never heard of sound good.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrlSfbcHOBY Bangin' On A Trash Can]]. Just listen to that ''awesome'' banjo riff.
** The music of The Beets, a (fictional) rock band featured in the show. Just listen to the pure awesome that are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZSnUJXUQJM Shout Your Lungs Out]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0S-OpRYQag I Need Mo' Allowance]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BTtMe7bPTc Killer Tofu]].
** Most of the incidental music in the series is spun off from characters' {{Leitmotif}}s, but "Doug's Lucky Hat" has a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfXggRuctAY particularly atmospheric]] pipe and guitar-based theme that is a perfect fit for the central plot idea of the MaybeMagicMaybeMundane hat that lands at Doug's feet, just as the hat is a perfect fit for Doug's head.
* All of the music in ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''.
** The incidentals and montages. "The Greatest Danger is Love" and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMvc0IA2Gnw "Graveyeard 8".]] Creator/JeffBennett, Creator/JohnDiMaggio, and Fred Stoller pulled off an amazing banjo folk song that was completely unexpected and awesome.
** [[Creator/NeilPatrickHarris Dr. Blowhole's]] VillainSong, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m73Z3ALTMQI "Brand New Plan"]], and VillainLoveSong, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiPECCLCWNA "I Wanna Control You"]], from ''The Return of the Revenge Of Dr.Blowhole''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaXEo1CiCds The theme tune]], ''especially'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUw-rMgRBLw the instrumental version]]. The Christmas special also had its own unique opening and ending version, complete with all the extra [[JustForPun bells and whistles]].
** The ominous Cluster war march {{Leitmotif}}.
** The very trippy Mozart-meets-Vangelis music playing over Jenny's very first dream in "Daydream Believer", and likewise the romance theme over Sheldon's ImagineSpot when he meets QT-2.
** The bubblegum pop-ish EarWorm "They Need Me" as well as the DarkReprise of the show's theme song from "Escape From Cluster Prime".
* The ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' MusicalEpisode "Zanzibar!". Never has a GreenAesop [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGlCi2cWcMU been so entertaining and catchy.]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' theme song. All together now: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8jKH8EUvHg "One fine day with a woof and a purr..."]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/RocketMonkeys'' theme song, which many say is the best part of the show. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ag0NCiVAfms "They're Rocket Monkeys! Monkeys in Space! They try to be heroes, but they're easy to replace! They're not the brightest. They're not the best. They're not the coolest. They also have bad breath!"]]
* The theme song to ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp''. Even if you do hate the show, you do have to admit that the theme is fucking awesome.
* From ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yV3Wsz0cR3E Go Jimmy Jimmy]]" and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLBnhE3kMqI this specific version]] of "Kids in America". A cover of an '80s song has never sounded as epic than this one.
* The theme song for ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' is insanely catchy. It manages to explain the basic premise of the show without being an ExpositoryThemeTune. "One boy and ten girls, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6MpT7lLwls wouldn't trade it for the world!"]]

[[folder:Cartoon Network Original]]
* While ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'' only has about ten seconds to cram in the original series awesome theme, it does so very, ''very'' well. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flTtnD4Z9j8 Case in point.]]
** Then there's also the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyvAvIM6OIc closing credits music.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'', [[OneWomanWail the music]] from the Dr. Gerbil's World ep, when the river chase is going on.
** The soundtrack to the episode "The Tower of Dr. Zalost" was also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwIzbxFWcv8 excellent]].
** The organ and choir theme that plays in the episodes "The House of Discontent", "Courage in the Big Stinkin' City", and "The Quilt Club" was good. Creepy and haunting yes, but good. ForDoomTheBellTolls adds even ''more'' epicness!
* Say what you will about TheMovie, but ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' had a pretty good soundtrack. In particular, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=df9l4qBAFvA "The Battle of Christophsis"]] stands out as especially awesome.
** As for [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars the 2003 series]], the music that plays during [[HeroKiller General Grievous]]' EstablishingCharacterMoment of delivering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome FIVE JEDI AT ONCE]] is both creepy and SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic at once.
** As for tracks coming from the 2008 series, we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLTGXrDJlDE "Passing the Secret"]] (which can also double as a TearJerker), which parts of play during [[spoiler: the death scenes of Echo, Even Piell and Fives.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs4WuvDfXCk This track]] which plays during the fistfight with Sergeant Slick is a remix of the speeder chase music from ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' and the {{Leitmotif}}s for the clone army.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlNgsE7Nkfo The train fight music from "Bounty" (which also partly shows up in "The Unknown")]] is a neat combination of electronic and orchestra.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIyv9XEhsRg "Everyone Fighting"]] from "Altar of Mortis", which combines a few of the series' stock tracks and the Mortis {{Leitmotif}}.
** (Warning! Links contain spoilers for the Season 5 finale arc!) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caCo4lcE3c0 This]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wP3TtPs8Sqs collection]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yR0Anii7Ro of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LayK4Rqhtfk tracks]] makes up the entire chase sequence at the end of "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much".
** (Warning! More spoilers from that arc!) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbS5MmV9iHE "Duel in the Jedi Temple"]], which plays during Anakin's duel with [[spoiler: Barriss Offee]] in "The Wrong Jedi".
** (Again, spoilers from the same arc) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEBH0RIM2Zw These]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmZTo0cTh0E two]] tracks are some of the last tracks in "The Wrong Jedi". Also double as {{Tear Jerker}}s. And that last part of the latter is the credits theme for that episode (and then the series finale, "Sacrifice").
* As ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'' says : [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-kYiDbG39s YOU! DIG! GIANT ROBOTS! I! DIG! GIANT ROBOTS! WE! DIG! GIANT ROBOTS! CHICKS! DIG! GIANT ROBOTS!... Nice!]]
** The whole soundtrack. [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Kaijudomage22#play/all/1B40B354372F1FA4-all/0/2D5bicnNpy0 Hear for yourself]].
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' has some pretty awesome music. The opening theme is [[EarWorm insanely catchy]].
** And it's also available [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0v4SRoTzzWo in orchestral form!]]
** The tune played whenever monsters show up and attack stands out as well. It's pretty cool.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXKPrFVLQiU opening theme]] is pretty darn catchy, despite the fact that it doesn't look like much effort was put into it.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOjGDRryTIc Little Rock of Horrors]], inspired by ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors'', set to the sublime and [[EarWorm very catchy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_i7tqWMbUFU BRAINS!]] by Music/{{Voltaire}} (additionally, his song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxSrDn3NReAI Land of the Dead]] was in [[TheMovie Billy and Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure]]) and in the same movie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aRlqyR7NKE Scary O]]. Also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6raidRForwg Battle of the Bands]] with a small part of the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rs3WV3Fu-kw Darkness]] by SPF [[{{Goth}} 1000]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpPz6AitFWs Keeper of the Reaper]] has a very nice song as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': "Enter at your peril, past the vaulted door; impossible things will happen that the world's never seen before..."
** "In Dexter's laboratory lives the smartest boy you've ever seen. But Dee Dee blows his experiments to smithereens! There is gloom and doom while things go boom...IN DEXTER'S LAB!"
** The fully opera episode, "[=LABretto=]". Dexter's anguished song at the end in particular stands out.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sr6INhYIo08 Secret Formula]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hssLLakcUQg Back to the Lab]] from The Hip Hop Experiment album.
* The ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' intro uses the main theme from the original ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', but adds a more mature, Orchestra (and Horn) touch to it. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tDGkXA1N-Q -He's Ben 10!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryInc'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyXM72768G0 The theme song]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VagyRaSfxCQ the credits song]].
** For two songs that were already pretty heavy, the show manages to make [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulaDQ-2gsak "I'm a Hex Girl" and "Earth, Wind, Fire, and Air"]] into even heavier, Music/TheSistersOfMercy-style bone-crunching goth rock. The synthesized choir in the latter is especially fantastic. Pity there's only about thirty seconds of it. There's also a gothy power ballad original to the show called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWvYN4ftNHs Trap of Love]], sung by ''Daphne'' of all people.
** The brilliantly weird Music/VelvetUnderground-meets-''{{Film/Inception}}'' track [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCgZVRtG19Y "The Hunters"]] from "Art of Darkness". [[spoiler: It turns out to be a very, very slowed down polka song.]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEJKxayRSPY opening and ending themes]] from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''.
** Themes hell. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oTbPf1LBDg GWAR as killer cafeteria food!]]
* Got to get back, back to the past [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwIvXzo73Yo Samurai]] [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack Jack]]. WATCH OUT!

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AH6QWK6z6Q The third and final Cartoon Network Fridays theme]] is energetic, fast-paced, and nostalgic.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NfHCQdAdJw has this brilliant little piece of chase music.]]
* The chase songs that were all to common in ScoobyDoo where are you such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBD_NnBvSQU Recipe For My Love]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqM7dfcW7L8 Daydreamin']] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4w-CyLnc7QA I Can Make You Happy]].
* The [[TheEighties "totally 80's"]] vibe of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' has an awesome 80's soundtrack to match. Special recognition should most definately be given to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkSwHy9eG9U the use of Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend" during the montage scene from the episode "Caffinated Concert Tickets".]]
** ''Regular Show'' in general makes excellent use of licensed music. One example being "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain during a bad trip after drinking a concoction of the same name.
* The ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpsxfEU-4Is theme]] ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4PVLzR9XcY full version]]), with the Music/FlamingLips and ''Tom Jones'' doing vocals! These guys really put their all into it!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToedGaNN65g Cartoon Network's 20th Anniversary medley]] features an orchestra covering the themes from some of the network's finest shows. From ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Space Ghost|CoastToCoast}}''(!) to ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' and ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', this musical montage commemorates CN's 20th anniversary fantastically.
* The jazz scores throughout the ''entire'' ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' soundtrack manage to both perfectly set the scene and be ''so goddamn cool''.
** Special mention goes to the final song used in TheMovie. What's this? ''[[http://soundcloud.com/#patriccaird/eds-bps-big-ending-mp3-1?in=patriccaird/sets/music-from-the-cartoon-network Guitars?]]'' Add the Heartwarming ending to the entire series to that, and you've got an EPIC closer.
* Rebecca Sugar was known for composing some of the best songs on ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. Naturally, once she got her [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse own show]], just about every soundtrack is absolutely gorgeous, even the background music. Trying to list them all would take [[UpToEleven forever]], but quite a few are up on [[https://soundcloud.com/aivisura Sound Cloud.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000'' has tons of great music courtesy of Andre 3000, who worked and voiced on the show. Some examples include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-8ujbCB190 Oh Peanut]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqNWwsMHr_Y Kim and Kam Jam]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Rw46JSbbJI the theme itself]].

[[folder:Fox Cartoon]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has its own page.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'': The intro "Oh boy, it's swell to sayyy...'''''"...GOOD MORNING, U.S.AAAA!"'''''
** Eight words: Krispy Kreme [=McDonald's=] Jam-Tasic Roller Boogie Prawn Experience. Every song they play is a public domain song [[MundaneMadeAwesome made awesome]].
%%** "Go Find Your Kink".
* Thanks to AuthorAppeal, ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is lucky enough to have a truly lavish soundtrack. From the jazzy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IJTO1_hfwE main theme]] (with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFVEQ4mtoQQ remix]] by Frank Sinatra, Jr.!), to the gleeful TakeThat [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NDPT0Ph5rA song]] against the [[MediaWatchdog FCC]], to the epic [[RunningGag chicken fight]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fjCta5GwUg theme]], the composers seem to be on a never-ending quest to top themselves. And ''then'' they made an album with a nine-minute big band medley of [[TheEighties 80's]] sitcom [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KiMzcx_-7k themes]].
** Said main theme has now been [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuaXbIhqMpQ extended to a full music track]].
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtpCuJGFGgs Now that you're stinking rich, we'll gladly be your bitch! My God, this house is--freakin'--sweeeet! Welcome!]]"
** By the way, a cordial FateWorseThanDeath to anyone who posts the Surfin' Bird song...
** [[{{Jerkass}} The surfin' bird song]]! b-b-b-bird bird bird, b-bird's the word...
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQEhBai711o You'll get chills! All through your body... and you'll lose all control!]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgQ8BJdkN5U Prom Night Dumpster Baby]] has one of the best Rat Pack era feels to it, regardless of the basis for the song or how short it is.
** The harmony in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eh1tdrtTV00 Fat Guy National Anthem]] is beautiful.
** WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy's rendition of "Shipoopi", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQ5wy9CXn8Q When We Swing]]", and "The Freakin' FCC".
** Any of the "Road to" songs are fabulous, especially "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzYnQoyIFPY Road to Rhode Island]]" and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2nirBCMhaY So Awfully Different]].
** In the newer episodes, there's a new ending theme, an awesome, jazzy, big band number.
** Stewie's song "Down Syndrome Girl", which is hilarious. Near the end you wonder "How the hell is he singing that fast, with that many big words, without pausing?!"
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT3wwNaEr4g Four Peters]].
** The song "All I Really Want For Christmas" from "Road to the North Pole", where the whole town gets in on a kick-ass holiday carol.
*** Same episode, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFgPicwIbf8 "Christmas Time Is Killing Us"]] was the most incredible moment in the post-cancellation history of the show. Especially considering it takes its rhythms from [[Disney/TheLionKing Be]] [[VillainSong Pre]][[AwesomeMusic pared]].
** "North by North Quahog" makes liberal use of Music/BernardHerrmann's soundtrack to ''Film/NorthByNorthwest''. And it's ''amazing.''
** The family singing a cover of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xoq1RtpOPUY "The Rose"]].
** Stewie singing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZJwn_Bl1fc "You Needed Me"]], complete with imagery from Brian's days as a puppy.
%%** "Anna rules!" "Cause I kick all the bad guys in their jewels!"...
%%** "It's a wonderful day for pie..."
%%** "Mr. Booze" from "Friends of Peter G." is particularly incredible.
%%** "A Bag of Weed".
* Most of the occasional musical numbers on ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' are completely awesome. Especially the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Z_zqOu5WB4 'Robot Hell']] song and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttJNl2FyvKs 'This Trinity's Going to War']] from TheMovie.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRk1s5Kf3aQ Ladies and gentlemen, we present you - the extended theme song!]]
** The music playing when Fry saves the day at the end of "Three Hundred Big Boys" is pretty friggin' awesome.
** So is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1GH7pLg7AU "That Was Then (And This is Too)"]], the theme to "Into the Wild Green Yonder", sung by none other than Creator/SethMacFarlane in the swingin' style of Music/FrankSinatra. Say what you want about Seth, but the guy sure can sing.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iGtCDLN7UE The space battle music from "Bender's Big Score"]] is awesome.
** Their excellent use of non-originals. Bender whistling "Sweet Georgia Brown" at the end of "Time Keeps on Slippin'" is amazing. Even better is the sort-of "evil alien" version of "Sweet Georgia Brown" that plays when the Globetrotters first arrive on Earth. Easy to miss, but awesome nevertheless.
** Some more awesome songs include [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uR1heTwHgb8 this one]] from "A Tale of Two Santas" and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYQ4uV8NDJo this one]] from the end of "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back", both of which are aided by the cast's generally good singing voices.
%%*** Four words: Don't Forget About Me.
%%Four more words: why is it awesome?

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJz2X_-Ep80 The Machines]]" from WesternAnimation/{{Nine}} is short, yet epic.
* This was already mentioned on the film page but because it is also animation, ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' has the howling scenes, which were absolutely great.
* The ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' movies have some good music...but these songwriters are crazy!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=le8-R7Trcbg Asterix est la!]]- from ''Asterix vs Caesar''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjZBmbGtGjw Say Goodbye]] from ''Asterix Conquers America'', performed by Bonnie Tyler.
* "Heritage of the Wolf" from ''WesternAnimation/{{Balto}}'', especially the scene where [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1uMmCTheQ4 Balto howls with the White Wolf]]. Also "Reach for the Light".
** And from the sequel, "Who You Really Are" which Muru sings to Aleu. Also, "The Grand Design", the song the wolf pack sings (including cameos from David Carradine and villain Creator/MarkHamill!).
* The ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' movies have a pretty good score. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeHyZJTZ6gk See]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wOFbghno90 for]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNU0COTzpkM yourself]].
* From ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBearsMovie'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcctwbAckBo Care-a-Lot]], and from [[WesternAnimation/CareBearsMovieIIANewGeneration the second]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aj9oLUWYSsY Forever Young.]]
* The ''entire soundtrack'' of ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'', with extra points to Animal Jam and Tell Me Lies. There's a ''reason'' this out of print Music/RandyNewman soundtrack CD goes for upwards of $100.
* The original Spanish introduction of ''[[WesternAnimation/DragonHill La Colina del Dragón]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp1699xqehw is simply so energetic and awe inspiring]].... even if the CGI is terribly dated (thankfully, it's followed by traditional animation rather quickly).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}''
** Just the opening track "Dreaming" is so stunningly beautiful. The whole [[http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=DCD67CE98D531DCE&page=1 soundtrack]] is unbelievably awesome.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nl3vLLLoD5U "Installation"]], which sets up the mood of the first half of the movie, before [[FromBadToWorse everything starts getting fucked up.]]
** And its specially-designed-for-EarWorm cousin, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxs2vS2gJ-c "Exploration"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRPS3XlRYLk "The Other Father Song"]], another EarWorm by Music/TheyMightBeGiants. The lyric is also full of subtle, extremely creepy {{Foreshadowing}}.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2bgvkKf-Tw "Fantastic Garden"]], half the reason everyone keeps grinning stupidly during the title sequence, the other half being the ungodly amount of SceneryPorn, done [[MemeticMutation WITH A BOX OF SCRAPS!]]
* Depending on the person, ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie'' ranges from SoBadItsGood to downright terrible overall; but nobody can deny that its VillainSong [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXDZ65wTa5w "Who Is the Boss?"]] is one of the catchiest songs in any animated film from the 80's.
** Most people agree that the best piece in the movie is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErIcD4gj38g "Face to the Wind (The Princess Song)"]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ferngully|The Last Rainforest}}''. If you like Creator/RobinWilliams, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtuKoD1Wbvg The Batty Rap]]. If you like Creator/TimCurry, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PLQ1XfaTuU Toxic Love]]. And if you like [[AwardBaitSong award-baiting love ballads]], there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIdrI8VGDxM A Dream Worth Keeping]].
* The ''Franchise/GIJoe'' theme people, especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nv_daZe1kNI the movie theme]].
* ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'' has a soundtrack that's not just awesome - it's awesomeness to the extreme.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheHobbit'', as adapted by Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}}.
** "Down, Down to Goblin Town" and "Fifteen Birds in Five Fir Trees" are very catchy examples of the VillainSong, a catchiness that also grabs hold of the light-hearted "In the Valley, Ha Ha!" and "Rolling Down the Hole". The best of the soundtrack is when Glenn Yarbrough sings "Roads" and "The Greatest Adventure."
* The sequel ''WesternAnimation/TheReturnOfTheKing'' may be SoBadItsGood overall, but boy does it have some catchy songs.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW_ocZLaRdI#t=0m17s "Frodo of the Nine Fingers".]]

%%** Another great example would be both versions of "Jungle of Nool": the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUHg2GhEw9U first one (1:39)]] and the later jazz version in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61rdFg4ETdc credits (1:14)]].
%%** Three words: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8btrjZqC6Qw We are here]].
%%* The track at any moment in any of the ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' movies, particularly the third. Arguably the best is the track during Bucks flashback in ''Ice Age 3''.
* The "Fix It" song from ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'', which plays whenever he uses his homing device to put himself back together. It's very cute and memorable, and gets a TriumphantReprise at the end of the movie that never fails to make you smile.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'':
** The movie's SignatureSong [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StTqXEQ2l-Y "Everything is Awesome!"]] is often cited as such in reviews.
** From Music/MarkMothersbaugh's score, we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncVv-MW7E00 "Saloons & Wagons"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRZ7K-LrZzc "Emmet's Plan"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLhLQ_gudAg "Wyldstyle Leads"]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wSPT3di7uU "My Secret Weapon"]].
** The trailers' music: "Feel This Moment" by Music/{{Pitbull}} feat. Music/ChristinaAguilera, in the 1st & 2nd trailers, and Avicii's "Wake Me Up" in the 2nd.
** Even the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bM4rVv5vDnE Double Dare fanfare]] makes an appearance. Hell, let's just say the entire soundtrack and leave it there.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8706Kx_H_g "Jag in a Jungle"]] by Brite Futures, used as the theme for Cloud Cuckooland.
* The one ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' song almost everyone knows: "I'm a poor lonesome cowboy a long way from home".
* TheMovie of ''Literature/ThePhantomTollbooth'' had a lot of moderately cute music... Tock's song "Time Is A Gift," and the GrandFinale, "Rhyme And Reason Reign." Yes, [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses everything IS better with Princesses]]...as long as their names are [[MeaningfulName Sweet Rhyme and Pure Reason.]] :)
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFhd8RfCqVg "Aisling's Song"]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfKells''. "Yooouuu muuuust go wheeere I cannoooot..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NJA8LaCebs Far Longer Than Forever]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess''.
* [[DorkAge The only bit worth watching]] in ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryTheMovie'' is the [[VillainSong delightful]] "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNbw1kUDp5M Money is Such a Beautiful Word]]".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTripletsOfBelleville'' uses Mozart's "[[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=8oVVitkT35w Mass in C Minor - Kyrie]]" during the incredibly dramatic storm at sea segment.
** Then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMzoNO3wdY4 main theme]], "Belleville Rendez-vouz". It's a jazz number performed on vacuum cleaner and bicycle spokes. Need we say more?
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJ8pazNEQeY Cabaret Hoover]] is also incredibly catchy.
* The CultClassic ''WesternAnimation/TwiceUponATime'' has two great songs: for its opening DramatisPersonae segment there's "Heartbreak Town" (sung by Bruce Hornsby), and the title song (sung by Maureen [=McDonald=]) plays over the lovely closing sequence and credits.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHD6UlOxHx0 "You and Me"]] from ''TheJetsonsMovie''

[[folder:TV series]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TwelveOunceMouse'': Skillet's three-minute [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMSS6aqP1Aw animated drum solo]], which ends with his drums bursting into flames.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAnimalsOfFarthingWood''. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPz1Zy98bJw main theme/intro]] for the series is plain awesome!
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qS5WNz8UbU8 Meatwad's solo]]. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome That's on the list for one of the best guitar solos ever.]]
** Mastodon's "Cut You Up With A Linoleum Knife", in which various pieces of movie snacks present a ''death metal'' version of a movie theater policy trailer. Even the people at [[http://www.adultswim.com Adult Swim]] thought that was the main highlight of the Aqua Teens movie.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbEGO8GozMA I WAS JEKYLL JEKYLL HYDE JEKYLL HYDE HYDE JEKYLL!]] Ah, ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' sure could be awesome when it really tried.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYcPS-wTn7s Just a little homework tonight...]]
* The intro music to ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet'' is ''badass''. Once it hits the 5 second mark, '''[[LetsGetDangerous it's atomic time]]'''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3EN4kiIxSs And here it is straight from the production team's channel.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' [[http://youtu.be/zlw6l9v7FYc intro]]
** As well as "'''[[WritingAroundTrademarks REVENGERS]]''' Assemble", [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5geDPior8Y this awesome though unused theme]] composed by Ron Wasserman (who also created the masterpiece that is the theme song for ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'').
* ''WesternAnimation/AvengerPenguins''...''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_F84a492kY BIIIIKE UP!!!!]]''
%%* They should release a soundtrack for the music in WesternAnimation/BeastWars.
* Low budget animation and dissonant voices aside, the music of ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles'' speaks volumes. Amped considerably with ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine''.
* The AnimatedAdaptation's version of Music/DannyElfman's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jk_vvQ4uq_o Beetlejuice Theme]] ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bt7bES8GKQ HD]]).
** The AnimatedAdaptation's version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3nNwixwsUg The Addams Family theme]].
* The ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' theme tune. And also the show's soundtrack especially the songs "Tunnel Rat" "Look Out Below" and "Born To Be Wild".
%%* The closing theme to ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanet'' is awesome.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2x_4nCj4TI0 über-manlily awesome]] introduction of ''WesternAnimation/ConanTheAdventurer''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' has two that really stand out, which are Jay's IWantSong [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0IX0srz0w8 "Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now"]] and a musical number from ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usegltieVAY Apocalypse Wow!]]''
* Cult favorite ''WesternAnimation/{{Cybersix}}'' has an ''awesome'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z22seoMxgpI intro]]. Sucks that they never made/released an extended version.
* The opening theme to ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse''.
** Naturally, after all, [[BraggingThemeTune "He's the strongest,]] [[TheAce he's the quickest]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og85s6BbK4I he's the beeeeeeest!"]]
* From the mind of Music/DannyElfman, based on the theme to ''Film/ForbiddenZone'', there is the theme to ''WesternAnimation/{{Dilbert}}''. Paired with the panning titles, it captures the insanity of Dilbert's world perfectly. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpivIYJFjd4 Have a listen!]]
* The cheesy yet awesome ''WesternAnimation/DinosaurTrain'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNpoEoXi1lE theme song]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'' had a lavish soundtrack provided by Mike Batt and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Perhaps most notable is the main theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UKhHchO2I8 "Better Than A Dream"]] and the VillainSong [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Mxs0EKfwA8 "War Song of the Urpneys"]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'' had about one piece of music for its first season. Thank god it's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_oRFGnXwgM awesome.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFour'': The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgQ5Wa4s_EQ theme]] of the Season One opening. Even better is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InKh9j77NcE Season Two's theme]].
* ''ComicStrip/FootrotFlats: The Dog's Tale'' gives us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQT0t2s1MoE "Slice of Heaven" by Dave Dobbyn and Herbs]].
* ''[[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers Galaxy Rangers]]''. The soundtrack in all of its 80's rock glory was so beloved by the fanbase that they begged Mandell and Koch to put it on the DVD collection separately from the episodes.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLplMEa5kuw "No Guts No Glory"]] (opening theme).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_du-zdxCDGE "Ranger are Forever"]] (closing credits #2).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gkZ1URUu0A "Somewhere a Heart"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liNRA1y7Dy0 "Fight To the Finish"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vg-BcjE213U "Psychocrystal"]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGarfieldShow'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l00TOFXf1JA intro]] has some nice, upbeat music to compliment the high energy crammed into less than 30 seconds worth of animation.
** "Ladies and gentlemen, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBqDoYUUGG0 Garfield and Friends!]]"
** "Well, he's a fat cat, a cool cat, nobody's fool cat, look out, 'cause ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Be4wZGlDNr8 Here Comes Garfield]]''"
* Though it is somewhat polarizing, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5PU04gDMJ0 theme song]] to the ''WesternAnimation/GeronimoStilton'' cartoon does evoke spy movies a bit.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQENCPSCVjg theme song]] of ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries'' wasn't half bad.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02u2JCayKeY theme]] for ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' is just marvelous. Pity it's so ''short.''
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aP-yrJuVwY Italian opening theme]] for ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002'' is a 3-minute long rock piece. Watch out for the guitar solo at 2:24.
* In ''WesternAnimation/HomeMovies'', Brendon Small works in some cool garage band music with the band SCAB, including a Franz Kafka rock opera. Front man Duane, in a guitar competition, takes Brendon's trashed, untuned rental guitar and makes it sing. (He doesn't win. He was robbed.) Doubly awesome in that the people behind ''Home Movies'' are the same people responsible for Metalocalypse.
* ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiT6BtGlYeU GO GADGET GO!]]
** Also the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVrpMJCjuM0 credits theme]], which might have been even better than the main theme.
** Really, the entire score. And on the subject, here's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OzSvYVkKGY the French version of the theme]]. Its silly lyrics reflect Gadget's clumsiness well anyway. On the other hand, the French version of Penny's theme, [[http://www.coucoucircus.org/da/generique.php?id=1571 at least without the words]], is pretty good. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly1vZewWeBA The version in the show]] is even better (one of them anyway, there were several).
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBbnT-cIDVM second US opening]] to the 90's ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' cartoon. [[RatedMForManly It'll really put hairs on your chest]], even if you're a woman.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9MqmKXH-sA Jem]]. It's her name. She's truly outrageous.
** Every single episode should count. The writers had to come up with at least three brand new songs ''every single episode''. Some songs were recycled, but yeah, every episode.
* The kickass [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rt66cLxUzBc opening theme]] to ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest''.
** Whatever your feelings about ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'', you gotta admit that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07Q7nKNVPwc this]] is an awesome remake of the classic theme.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Jumanji}}'' cartoon had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbZZKEJXz9U an excellent opening theme]].
* ''WesternAnimation/KingArthurAndTheKnightsOfJustice''. Not many people seem to remember this cartoon, about a Football team that gets transported to the middle ages to replace the missing King Arthur and his knights. But the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNjhbOH8m2U opening theme song]] to this show is pure epic.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfPrinceValiant'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5ptWFP1kBQ intro.]]
* ''[[WesternAnimation/MrMagoo Magoo's Christmas Carol]]'' had its share of memorable songs.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv_YATNhu_I "Winter Was Warm".]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq1oJJ9M784 "The Lord's Bright Blessing".]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFTD9o7dB0w "We're Despicable (The Plunderer's March)".]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' has some downright awesome music.
** Just listen to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDggqnnNuDo Go Into the Water]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3JpBY7sOJQ Awaken]]. There's a good reason Dethklok made the best-selling death metal album of all time. '''In real life.'''
** Additionally: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CRYcmzrXgE "The Lost Vikings",]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktEFOpny0S0 "Detharmonic",]] and the truly epic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuphOxBX8YI "Thunderhorse".]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBH0Bd9Z1VA This]]. Dethklok puts on a concert that lasts about a minute and fifteen seconds and manages to kill and horribly maim hundreds of their fans. For a ''coffee jingle''.
** From season 2; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwbPsImJwIc Black Fire Upon Us]].
** Aside from all the death metal, Charles Foster Offdensen has his own sweeping, heroic instrumental that's heard during the Siege of Mordhaus during the S2 finale, as well as the S3 premier where it blends perfectly with Dethklok's song at the end of the ep. Said motif is also in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW8RObuU0sI One Of Us Must DIE.]]
** Pickles' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NWWUKRjGJg rehab rock opera]] in Rehabklok.
** The season 03 finale gave us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFnTQdh9p7g "The Beginning."]] As an added bonus, the song plays as Dethklok pulls off a double booked concert and brings peace to the Middle East. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome It is as epic as it sounds.]] Also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO-wDK-phI0 Try The Galaxy]], the Full version of The Beginning.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ly3Ew9t53g Rejoining Earth]] which is a TriumphantReprise of [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic The Beginning]] from the Season 4 premiere. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_j1AHJlBw4 Now a glorious full length track on Dethalbum III.]]
** ''The Doomstar Requiem: A Klok Opera''. Brendon Small sings for 13 different characters, included guest appearances by [[Music/CannibalCorpse George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher]], Creator/JackBlack, and featured a 50 piece orchestral score composed by Music/BearMcCreary (who were all apparently dressed like Klokateers during the recording). It's 45 minutes of melodic/symphonic death metal, and is as awesome as it sounds. The VillainSong, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzw1qpNER4g "Magnus and the Assassin",]] is a highlight. So is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBYQAR8fG1w The Duel]]". And "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3vLXdNdTJ8 The Blazing Star]]", the only Dethklok single of the album.
** In the grand Dethklok tradition, the latest Dethalbum brought several tracks from the show and amped them up to eleven in glorious full length. Special mention goes to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7W35dyPTh6o I Ejaculate Fire,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2YnchvlxkM Crush The Industry,]] and at long last, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vo5Rn4dwhs Impeach God.]]
** Dr. Rockzo's "Dory," probably the best song ever written about [[{{Squick}} molesting a 14-year-old girl]].
%%** [[https://youtu.be/U3vLXdNdTJ8 The blazing star, it burns so bright! The darkened power, the deathly light!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y__copBmx-c "There's Always Another Rainbow"]].
* ''Series/OceanGirl: The Animated Series''' theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1D7SeADFR0 The Promised One]]
* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'' has a really good theme song, and has other good ones, like "The Beast Song" from "Songs of the Dark Lantern".
* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''.
** The [[BootstrappedTheme iconic]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgoPl35n_AY "Linus and Lucy"]] theme.
** The early ''Peanuts'' animated specials were gloriously blessed by the jazz scores by Vince Guaraldi. The first one, ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas'' is even more awesome for its breakthrough innovation; the idea of using jazz for an animated family TV special was ''unthinkable'', but Guaraldi changed everyone's mind instantly.
** The David Benoit arrangements of Guaraldi's classics in the post "It's Spring Training, Charlie Brown" specials are pretty awesome too. Of note is the jamming remix of the Charlie Brown Theme in the Bird Football scenes of "You're In The Super Bowl, Charlie Brown".
** As is most of the music in "It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown".
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLDzeZ9gx3M This]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbiYFA0-8mU this]].
%%An example that doesn't even bother to include the TITLES of the videos being linked is a Less Than Zero Context Example.
* ''WesternAnimation/PopeyeTheSailorMeetsSindbadTheSailor''. Whoooooooo's the most remarkable, extraordinary fellow?
* The opening theme of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' manages to top the original version. Jim Latham's version for ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' ...not so much.
** Similarly, the little-known opening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH8yd2xLL8s theme]] of 1986's ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' is this, despite the fact that its only lyrics are "Let's go, Ghostbusters! Let's go! Let's go, Let's go!". The pipe organ section, which interpolates part of [[Music/JohannSebastianBach Bach's]] Music/ToccataAndFugueInDMinor, has something to do with this.
** The instrumental section is based on Edvard Grieg's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzyi3C4gNnE In the Hall of the Mountain King]]."
* ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunninghamNinthGradeNinja'' has 30 Seconds to Math performing their song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K54892W3_Yk Detention Deficit Disorder]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' [[http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3116615247585668546# Firewall]] after episodes of despair and very close victories over [[BigBad Megabyte]] this triumphant song heralds the point where things start going the heroes way... for a while.
* While the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' cartoon was... Well, opinions vary, but the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kc0mD8_IGCA theme tune]] had a lovely Mediaeval feel to it.
* ''Anime/{{Robotech}}?'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvZ8OmC9Bcg The 15th Squadron]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBDe7LvZIh8 Roy Fokker's Theme]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMsEFWO_oi0 Rick Hunter's theme]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zKD-mG_FPI Battle Station]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rn5cFNWeAAU Alien Attack]].
* The intro of ''WesternAnimation/{{Silverhawks}}'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcX-ZmKLzGU Wings of silver, birds of steel... Silverhawks!]]
* The 1990s ''WesternAnimation/SilverSurfer'' opening sequence, short as it was, is awesome enough to contain its own OminousLatinChanting. Hear it for yourself [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84U7Nbg__64 here]], if you can tune out all the swooshing-in-space sounds that are layered on top of it.
* ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'''s theme song blends epic, heartwarming, Tearjerking moments and an amazing backstory all together.
* Though the main series is no slouch when it throws its musical numbers, ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' has an undeniably ''glorious'', catchy, and '''beautiful''' soundtrack. Special mention goes to the trope-naming song, [[LaResistance La]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KT0kznO4OE Resistance]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGoofs''. Long story short: [[Music/TheStooges Iggy Pop]] sings [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8m0Rqsn0vU the theme song.]]
** Shame there's no extended version. Wait, there [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10Qzsr_8IbA is]]?
* The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKss2pBYQ6Y Super Chicken]]'' theme is as geeky as ''he'' is, but a very infectious earworm.
* The theme to the ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends''. Say what you want about the cartoon, but the theme song was ''epic''.
* ''Superjail!'': Pretty much every song on the damn show, especially the opening and closing themes.
* ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' also got some pretty sweet ass music opening theme music too, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_AdxJWFUh4 one for season one]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsOrCq811r8 and another for season 2]].
* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDQzALOH9iU theme music]].
** The theme songs for ''[[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles TMNT]]'' shows tend to be ''very'' catchy. Just listen to the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 20]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZX2rW0ZfXA 03]] and [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 20]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9-NOpENQAk 12]] themes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywl4WikdCN4 Tintin]] theme tune.
* [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama World Tour]]''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xaslr8mvppY "Come Fly With Us"]] is positively reeks of awesomeness. Which is saying a lot, since most fans thought the concept of music in the show was going to be worse than all the fart jokes. But with a little auto-tuning and actually a nice beat, even Ezekiel and Noah of all people are probably the best singers in the song!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmHB2UwgVAg Stuck To A Pole]] makes the classic "tongue on a flagpole" prank ''epic''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABCZaqBtq2E Lovin' Time]] and its reprise Rowin' Time. ''Any'' of the songs so far.
** Despite its strange subject matter, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRpvkyy5XD8 Wake Up]] is a very awesome song, most notably at the very end.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyIe2aLesbM This Is How We Will End It]] deserves a special mention. Muppets have never been so hardcore! Followed by "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5-ai0QsRK8 Versus]]", which captured the denouement of Heather's and Alejandro's relationship. The two bitterly criticize each other while viciously competing (the only way those two know how to compete). Watching "This Is How We'll End It" and "Versus" back to back is simply epic.
** Cody's solo in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdbNIU1ot44 Condor]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVr5WxrJQgA We Built Gwen's Face]] which is also a tribute to the music group ABBA.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_oZM323ioc BoyFriend Kisser]] song that, in Canada, was voted as the favorite of the audience.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcjOi_3H7gw The Underdog Theme Song]]. Who knew a very old cartoon show could have a theme song so very epic?
** And then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDVLiuto5Ec it was covered by ]] Music/ButtholeSurfers.
** It also got an awesome ''a capella'' cover by The Blanks (aka Ted's band, The Worthless Peons, from Scrubs). It can be heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHyVN14v7FM "here"]].
*** Same can be said about a lot of the covers featured on 'Saturday Morning: Cartoon's greatest hits'. Just check out [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5P8lrgBtcU The Ramones doing Spider-Man]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngilTl56-Gs Sponge doing Speed Racer]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxV9tIlpN94 The Violent Femmes doing Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgEG73owZpk Face to Face covering Popeye.]] All very awesome.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Fe9GEoB-z0 rap cover]] of the theme song (by Kyle Massey) for the movie was pretty interesting.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' has quite an ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WblP-uRQ_U epic]]'' ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuxRxO0Y_g4 soundtrack]]'' that manages to have quite a bit of variety to it, even the occasional classical piece sneaked in for good measure. The usage of "Mars, Bringer of War", in the episode "Hate Floats", for example... Or compare/contrast the main theme for the show with the theme for ''[[ShowWithinAShow Rusty Venture]]'', as an example of the talent of Music/JGThirlwell.
** [[LargeHam Dr. Orpheus]] has SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic reserved for [[MundaneMadeAwesome his most mundane actions]].
** The absolutely awesome use of Music/{{Pulp}}'s 'Like A Friend' in the season 4 finale, [[http://youtu.be/9E4yrqGGLPo available here.]]
* If there's anything about ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' that is definitely superior to the original anime, ''Anime/GoLion'', it's the awesome score by John Peterson.
* The opening theme for ''WesternAnimation/VytorTheStarfireChampion'', a mini-series from the same creators of ''Voltron'' and ''Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTID16MGaow "Fantasy becomes reality, in a galaxy far away..."]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGufyFt6zQc The intro]] of ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego'' is Mozart as a cartoon intro! WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick said it best:
-->"Wherever she is, it must be in the land of epic!"
* Woody Woodpecker got one in the short ''The Barber of Seville.''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxII9y9S3bw The intro]] to Woody's cartoons is pretty memorable as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/WorldOfQuest''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7cqLvW9E7Q The theme song]] is impossibly catchy, and pretty damn awesome too. "Save the World! The World of Quest! (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo!)"
* The original opening theme for the ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' animated series in the '90s deserves a mention as well.
** If you think that's good, take a listen at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfjAbXrvkFw what the Japanese slapped on their dub on the show]]. [[EarWorm CRY FOR THE MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Phantom 2040}}'' would probably be remembered only by fans of the hero identity, or fans of Peter Chung, but it had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Md0i8B_aPqk a really awesome opening theme]].
* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIP7c7ut2dU song]] from the film "The Princess and the Goblin".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' has some of the most gorgeous songs ever written for an animated kids' show, including an absolutely ''dazzling'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLVe1NkQA78 theme]].
* The greatest [[TheVillainSucksSong Villain Sucks Song]] of all time. Sing it: [[WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas You're a mean one, Mister Grinch...]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzXKWKaxt3c You really aaaaare a heeeeeeeell...]]
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubeVUnGQOIk Walking in the Air]]" from ''ComicBook/TheSnowman''.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockAndRule'':
** "My Name Is Mok, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSGIZp9bBK4 Thanks A Lot!"]]
** "Send Love Through."
* Might just be [[NostalgiaFilter nostalgia kicking in]], but [[http://www.retrojunk.com/tv/videos/1960-rescue-heroes/1653/#intro the theme tune]] for ''WesternAnimation/RescueHeroes'' made a show based on TheRealHeroes almost ''work''.
* Regardless of what you think about the actual cartoon, regardless of the lyrics being the same line over and over again -- [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akJygsSXcjw SUPER FIGHTING ROBOT! MEGA MAN!]]
* The opening theme to the animated versions of ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' and ''Discworld/WyrdSisters''. Not only is it epic, it fits the whole 'disc on the back of four elephants on the back of a turtle' thing. Listen to it with headphones on for added awesome.
** Also the soundtrack to ''Discworld/SoulMusic''. As a story entirely about the Disc's first [[RockAndRoll Music With Rocks In Band]], it pays homage to a variety of bands and styles. Plus Sioni Bod Da, the music Buddy [[DealWithTheDevil sold his soul for one last chance to play]]
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJeb123xUyA The theme song]] for ''WesternAnimation/TheZetaProject'' is simply amazing.
* On ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAndCousins'', Harmony Bear's song in "Share Air" really is quite nice. It has a sort of mellow vibe like some of the music from the 80s. And unlike what happens to the bears on the show, it won't actually make you float on air, heavy instruments or no.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman''
%%** "Season of the Witch" by Music/{{Donovan}}, in the trailer (also covered in the film itself.)
%%** And "Little Ghost" by Music/TheWhiteStripes in the credits.
%%** Music/JonBrion's score. ''Especially'' what plays during the film's climax.
* The opening intro of ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'' is a stirring [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ogtz7iNKIt4 Army-chorus styled]] ExpositoryThemeTune that lovingly celebrates the series' combination of {{Eagleland}} and {{Zeerust}} tropes, all while displaying some pretty gratuitous explosions to boot.
