Thu Mar 14, 2019 1:41 am

Eight is Enough (Grant Goodeve)
Gimme a Break (Nel Carter)
Brady Bunch (kids)
Love, Sydney (cast)
Alice (Linda Lavin)

Richard Sanders didn't sing the theme song from WKRP in Cincinnati*; there's an urban myth that he did.

Are there really a lot of shows theme songs sung by cast? I am racking my brain. I was raised on prime time TV sit-coms. 227 and Growing Pains and Mr. Belvedere and She's The Sheriff and Who's The Boss and Perfect Strangers and Family Matters.... I know Telma Hopkins was in Dawn (Tony Orlando & Dawn) and some other actors have a great set of pipes. Most of the themes were either instrumentals or canned.

Kelsey loves to sing in any oppertunity. He does the same when voicing The Simpsons charactor Sideshow Bob.

What about The Fresh Prince of BelAir, by Will Smith?

American Dad? I know it is animated but Seth McFarlaine (sp) does the voice of Stan who sings the opening theme.

I immediately thought of Green Acres when I saw this thread title - great opening credits sequence - set up the entire premise of the series. Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor were terrific together.
Who from the cast sang the Mr. Ed theme? Unless you are just referring to the last line... "I am Mr. Ed"
Someone mentioned the Monkees upthread - that's an obvious one that others missed (guess I'm just one of the few old enough to remember it) :old:

I'm showing my young age here but:

-That's so Raven (Raven Symoné, Annelisse Van der Pol, and Orlando Brown)
-Raven's Home (all of the main cast has a part or sings backup, as is the case for Annelisse)
-As Told by Ginger (a Nickelodeon cartoon, 3 intros were recorded: the first one was with Melissa Disney (who voiced the main character, Ginger), but that was replaced with Cree Summer (who played Miranda, Ginger's rival), and finally the third one was with Macy Gray which became the default one for the series. Gray had no character in the series)
-Drake and Josh (Drake Bell)
-iCarly (Miranda Cosgrove)
-Wizards of Waverly Place (Selena Gomez)
-Victorious (Victoria Justice)
-Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus)
-Sonny with a chance (Demi Lovato)
-Cory in the House (sung in part by Kyle Massey who plays Cory Baxter, the protagonist and Raven's character's brother in That's So Raven)
-So Weird (Mackenzie Phillips)

REALLY dating myself here, but kids shows I used to watch and still remember:
-Out of the Box (the two hosts sang it)
-Bear in the Big Blue House (all of the characters sang part of the song)

And I'll stop now...

Can you amend the title to "US TV theme songs..."
Otherwise you might find people adding names and programs you have never heard of..... :roll:

Has anybody mentioned "The Fall Guy" (Lee Majors)?
Nothing to see here; move along please.

In the first season of “Facts of Life” Mrs. Garret (Charlotte Rae) sang a few lines in the theme.

Joanie Loves Chachi (Erin Moran and Scott Baio)

A bit of a stretch: the closing credits to “The Jeffersons” was sung by Janet Dubois, who played “Wilona” on “Good Times.” The Jeffersons was a spin off of “All in the Family.” Good Times was a spin off of “Maude,” which was a spin off of All in the Family.
