Format: Audio CD
Right - I've bought this album and am very pleased, because most of theses tunes are originals.

Previous reviewers were right, however, to mention Star Trek & Bonanza as not being originals.

In the album booklet there are five tunes asterixed as not being originals. They are Dragnet, Bonanza, Star Trek, S.W.A.T. and Happy Days. So they own up to this fact - so fair enough.

Star Trek - I can't tell the difference between this and the TV show.

The other four, it says, were all released as singles, I presume, in these versions. Thus giving them a certain amount of validity.

It also goes on to say that some of the tunes are re-recordings by the original artists made for commercial release and are hence not the tunes used for the actual TV soundtrack. It doesn't say how many and I wouldn't like to guess. But one such track is definitely Dynasty. It's all synthy, where on the show it was more orchestral. But it is done by the original artist and released as a single so - OK.

This CD had me smiling all the way home during my commute. The tracks on this CD are astounding. TV theme music from the 50's through the 90's in a whirlwind presentation that will have you singing along or laughing with glee... As far as sound quality, the tracks are very clean and true with a few surprises. The orignal themes are there, with a twist. Some of the themes are extended. In Dragnet, for instance, the familiar "Dah, dah dut, dah" motif is there and then transitions to a big band arrangement sound. The original theme sounds just like the old reruns, but even better. This "trick" is also done on Batman, Mannix, Andy Griffith and some others. These tracks and others, may have been the extended release versions on radio or perhaps a remix with some new arrangements. The only themes that I heard on this CD that did not seem original were the Munster's Theme and possibly the Brady Bunch theme. These recordings are very acceptable, and I doubt most people would even notice. That's what happens when you are glued to the tv all day as a kid. Oh well.
The collection is nothing short of entirely entertaining. You'll be able to sing along to Gilligan's Isle, appreciate the rich warmth and full arrangement of Bonanza, recollect those scary moments at night when you hear the original Twilight Zone theme, and snap your fingers to the Partridge Family theme song.
This CD is a great time machine for those who grew up in these eras and a great tour of what past tv music was like for those of us who arrived some time after the release of these shows.
If you like classic tv shows, grew up during the golden age of television, or appreciate the pop culture of television, TV Land Television themes is for you.

Format: Audio CD
Many of these TV themes have been previously released on Tee Vee Tunes "Television's Greatest Hits". While many of the tunes are the originals (I Dream of Jeannie, Hawaii Five-O, Addams Family), many are not (Munsters, Bonanza, Andy Griffith), while others (such as Mannix and Happy Days) sound like extended versions of the originals. It's great to hear all the old themes again, but I'd much prefer to hear the originals. To their credit, some tracks (such as The Addams Family and "The Ballad of Jed Clampett) feature the "in" theme and the "out" theme.

If you're a fan of the old TV themes, you'll probably find something you like, though not necessarily all the originals.

Despite what I've read in many of the other reviews, Batman and the Munsters ARE NOT the original versions that we heard on the intros to the shows themselves. To hear the original themes for those songs, go to the TV Land Theme song home page.

I bought this CD thinking that all the tracks were going to be the original recordings. Some are and some are not. But for the most part, not a bad CD. But if you are looking for all original recordings and not rearrangments, then look elsewhere.

Some of these theme songs are remade and sound pretty lousy in my opinion. Any regular television viewer of these shows can easily distinguish them from originals. I can not recommend this set at all because of this. I made the mistake buying this by believing some MISLeading reviews that said they were "original themes"-"could not tell the difference from originals"(come on get your hearing checked or watch more classic tv or be more accurate. Other buyers read your reviews for guidance). I cringed at the sound of some of the weird music substituting the original theme song. They should have had the "fake" songs on another disc so I could have tossed that one in the trash.

... some of the songs (such as Bonanza and Star Trek) are not original and have been re-performed by other artists.
Since I mainly bought the cd for the song of Bonanza I am really disappointed. I wish they would say on the back of the cd that 3-4 songs are not original recordings. I would probably buy the disc all the same, but I felt cheated.

Now a picture may be worth a thousand words but a TV Land theme song is priceless. From I Love Lucy to Happy Days; from The Munsters to the Brady Bunch this CD has most of the classic TV shows ever. Having the most popular TV themes and TV shows what could be wrong with that. You can listen to it for hours because the whole CD is more than an hour long so its good for your listening pleasure. It even has some pictures of some TV casts/character/s in the booklet inside the CD case. Also it tells a little about each TV show about its theme song and has the dates that the show was on. Its perfect if you love music and/or love classic television.
