12 Of Our Favorite 80s TV Show Openings

These were at the beginning of each show and you either loved it or you hated it because no matter what, you had to get through it in order to watch the show!  Therefore, as we take a look back at some of the great ones, we remember how appreciative we are that these intros were just as fun to watch as the shows that followed!

1. Knight Rider.

The car was the star of this show.

2. The Greatest American Hero.

A good song will keep you hooked every time.

3. Bosom Buddies.

This was another great song and a very funny show!

4. Heart to Heart.

Already, you could tell there was going to be a lot of action and you loved the scenes they used in the opening of this show!

5. The Facts of Life.

“You take the good you take the bad you take them both and there you have the facts of life.” Admit it, you still know these words!

6. CHiPs.

Another great TV show with an intro that was worth watching.

7. Who’s The Boss?

This intro told you the whole story from the beginning every time so you didn’t forget how they ended up in this fancy, suburban home, “to a brand new life”.

8. Family Ties.

This family was fun to watch because each kid was allowed to be themselves, even if it was extreme!

9. Falcon Crest.

We knew right away that we were watching the one percent struggle to keep their wealth. It was scandalous!

10. The Love Boat.

This song made us want to book a cruise on this ship so that we could fall in love!

11. Dallas.

The struggle for oil, power and wealth. Another gripping tale about the rich people.  This time the oil tycoons in Dallas.

12. Fame.

This was the show that made us want to work for something besides a corporate job.  We wanted “FAME!”
