36. Ranma 1/2 (Spanish).


The Show: I believe most of you have seen it, but if you don't, it's about how Ranma, a martial-arts practicioner "cursed" to turn into a woman anytime somebody splashes water on him is forced by his father (cursed to turn into a panda) to engage with Akane, the temperamental daughter of a friend of his dad. Between all the characters that want Ranma (man and woman) and Akane and the friction between both, this show is pretty much gold.
Why do I have it on my list? Well, for starters, I always saw Ranma in Spanish so I have the Spanish opening. Also, I think it has a very fun and enjoyable song, which matches well with the images we see on screen.
I feel like I'm in this river, just getting swept along, and if I hold to anyone, if I'm holding on for dear life, I'm not getting anywhere, I'm stuck... I never wanted to get stuck...

35. LOST.


The show: It's easier to show you this video than to explain this show (my favorite ever, BTW).
The opening: Short, simple, but efective.

34. Power Rangers (First opening).


The show: You already know it.
The opening: The song is badass, simply, pure awesome badassery so badass that offsets Rita's annoying whiny voice and Alpha. Kimberly was hot. RIP Trini.

33. The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest


The show: A spin-off of the well known nostalgic show, this time now with Jonny and Hadji as teenagers, Race's daughter Jesse, new villains, and Questworld, a virtual reality that, even if now look horribly dated, back then was awesome. Plus, Jeremiah Surd was, in my opinion a terrific villain. The show deserved better than the two seasons it got.
The opening: The tune is cool and invites to adventure and I think that the images appearing in this virtual set of mountains are perfectly chosen. It shows you action ,adventure and make you feel excited. Plus, I think the design and animation are excellent.

32. InuYasha (Motorod).


The show: Shikon's Jewel is split in a lot of pieces, whoever gets a piece increases power. A monster named Naraku is getting all those pieces together, He must be stopped, in this case, when we aren't in a filler episode (I enjoyed most of those though) by InuYasha's gang and more, more stuff. I spent most nights in HS watching this show, I loved it and I still enjoy it. And the fact that it was always airing at 11-12:00 AM or even later actually made it more enjoyable. Miroku is very funny and Sango is hot. Kikyo was a wonderful character.
The opening: Well, I fucking love Motorod. I just love that song, along with several songs that constantly appeared in the opening or closing credits of this show like Deep Forest and Shinjitsu no Uta. also, I find this opening very visually pleasing and the red sword is awesome.

31. The Fairy Oddparents.


The Show: You've probably seen it but... ok, Timmy is an average kid, that no one understands. Mom and dad are always giving him command. Doom and gloom up in his room is broken instantly by his magic little fish who grant his every wish 'cause in reality... they are his oddparents, Fairly Oddparents...
The opening: As I just proved, the song is incredibly catchy, I can almost recite it in my sleep and the images that go with the song are a perfect match, in every single step, with a touch that really makes the show feel magic, and even more, incredibly fun. It's hard not to love this.

30. Ben 10


The show: Ben is a normal, hyperkinetic kid (like I was) that one day, on a trip with his uncle Max and his cousin Gwen finds a mysterious watch coming from space and with it's help, he can transform into a variety of aliens to face other bad aliens. This is another show I really enjoy despite it's inconsistencies. I really like the chemistry between Ben and Gwen, kinda remind me of my sister and myself when I was their age and Max is a wise figure that held the show together.
The opening: Incredibly catchy, spicially with that battery that simply kills me there. The use of diferent styles of animation throughout the opening makes it even better. All of this is better in Spanish as well, though.

29. Dexter's Laboratory.


The show: Dexter is a boy genius. Dee-Dee, his worst nightmare.
The opening: The sentence above is perfectly captured here, with the dramatic music and Dexter's expressions of victory and despair.

Dexter's opening it brilliantly played, for sure. No dialogue, just dramatic music and some quick cuts.

#. Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys.


The show: It was like Star Trek, but with Monkeys. One of the villains (the brain thrower) was voiced by Malcolm McDowell. Along the show there were diverse homages/parodies to several Sci-Fi films and shows I liked it a lot when I was a kid, that's why it was cancelled.
The reason is not on the list: I forgot about it.
The reason it should be on the list: Because it's awesome.

28. The O.C.


The show: A very entertaining soap opera in Newport beach with one of my favorite hotties Rachel Bilson.
The opening: Well, the song is pretty good and a perfect fit for this part of LA.

Seeing the Mikami and Ranma 1/2 openings in Spanish bring back so many memories. To this day I still hum both of the songs every one in a while.

Indeed. There's an unwritten natural rule that states that, when we talk about animes and some cartoons, for some reason, the themes and even som e of the voice acting will be better in Spanish (Spanish from america, the one from Spain, it's another story) than in English... by a lot.

#. X-Files.


The show: You know, aliens, conspiracies, HOLY FUCK WHAT WAS THAT!, the truth and an awful ending.
The opening: Unfortunately, when I was thinking about the list, I forgot about this show, big fail for me (actually, anytime you see the "#" is because I forgot that intro and because it had merits to be on the list). Anyway, the iconic theme evokes perfectly the aura exaled by the show, it's pretty much the hymn of every weird shit you'll ever see, and the images fit. Great, great, great.

27. Duck Tales.


The show: Scrooge McDuck and his nephews getting into all kind of adventures, Indy-style and stopping villains, all to get more money to swim. Good stuff.
The opening: The song... oh this song. So, so catchy and so, so awesome. Iconic.

Duck Tales! Fuck Yeah!
All I ever wanted was a cool '78 'vette and a house in the country.

#. Chip N' Dale: Rescue Rangers.


The show: Chip and Dale, joined by Gadget, a likely fap material for Hazzlerabbit, Monterrey Jack, a cheese junkie and Beeper, a fly with a sweater (Wat?) solving crimes ala Bernard and Bianca. Oh, the nostalgia!
The opening: While not as awesome as Duck Tales', this theme was also pretty catchy, fun and easy to identify. Good stuff.

26. Robot Chicken.


The show: A bunch of clips and sketches, most of them very, very funny that know how to touch my nostalgic bone. And they can actually do a good SW parody here.
The opening: Insanely great. I love how the mad scientist puts the clamp on the robotic eye.

No. The best is in a show that will appear on this list... twice.
Anyway, I do have very fond memories of this show, my favorite perhaps is in an episode where Dale, after a fight with Chip leaves the group and for some reason he ends up suffering retrograde amnesia, which Fat Cat takes advantage of, turning him into RamDale. Pure brilliance.

#. South Park.


The show: If you don't know it, you're under a rock... oir being anal probed by aliens.
The opening: I still ain't got an idea of what the hell are they saying, but it doesn't matter, is still good.
