Saturday morning cartoon show theme songs are the songs that played in our heads when we were kids, the catchy and well crafted tunes that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.

Just thinking about shows like Muppet Babies, Scooby Doo Where Are You?, Thundercats, Hong Kong Phooey or Josie and the Pussycats makes the theme song come to mind, demonstrating the power of the cartoon theme song.

In 1995 MCA released an album called Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits featuring The Ramones, Sublime, Liz Phair, Helmet and Reverend Horton Heat covering cartoon theme songs, and those childhood tunes were changed forever- in a good way.

The album also came with this full length home video, featuring all of the music videos for the songs on the album as well as Drew Barrymore and her friends reacting to each video while looking all alt 90s.

I bought that album on cassette tape twenty years ago. I loved listening to it. My favorite was Juliana Hatfield's Josie and the Pussycats and Frente's Open Up Your Heart and let the Sunshine In.
