My favorite TV openers from the 50’s to today


When it comes to defining the overall feel of a television show, the opening sequence can make or break a show. I am a television junkie. I think it is a healthy addiction. 

I decided to dedicate today to my favorite TV openers from the last 60 years dating back to the 1950’s. Why the 50’s? Well even though the American public got a sense of TV at the 1939 World’s Fair, it was WWII that really stopped the growth of TV.

So 1950’s was when TV took-off. It would be over 30 years later that yours truly found his love of TV. Email, tweet, or comment. What are your favorite TV title sequences?
