There are some songs that have you humming their tune for the rest of the day on repeat. Then there are other songs that take residency in your brain for 20-odd years. Classic kids' cartoons were full of such tunes, used as theme songs that got kids pumped for viewing and hooked for life in equal measure. Like the ”Pokémon” theme song, that’s all about grasping your destiny. Or “DuckTales,” which was almost too funky for its own good. Which was the best?

The “Pokémon” theme song starts out in a quiet whisper; very unassuming, right? Then, BOOM, POW—you’re hit with a left jab of positivity and an uppercut of motivation. Why sit here watching “Pokémon” at all when your destiny was calling your name?

Who’re we kidding—we still watched the show. And the movies. And played the games. As we did all this, that theme followed as around like our very own Pikachu. Our best friend. In a world we must defend…

“DuckTales” was a show about one of the grumpiest cartoon misers of all time, Scrooge McDuck, yet happens to be one of the most upbeat jingles ever. That bass guitar just gets you, man—it inspires you to swagger on down the street, ready to conquer whatever complications come your way with style.

Lyrically speaking, it’s a song of adventure and daring. Life is full of action, some that comes our way naturally, some that we can create ourselves. This speaks to any generation, current and upcoming. Nothing like a timeless song to keep a great cartoon alive.
