    My favorite cop show from the 1970's, Starsky & Hutch and the season one opening:

    ^I think I liked the season 2 opening the best.

    Sapphire & Steel:

    The opening monologue implied sapphire, steel, and various other compounds were elements, which was always a head-scratcher, but whatever - it had great atmosphere, and that was more important than making sense.

    None of these hold a candle to Mission: Impossible. The intro defined the series, even made the series. It's doubtful it would have lasted beyond a couple of seasons if not for this innovative, driving theme song and episode-unique visuals. It defines the series and the genre to this day, 60 years later.

    Why yes, I AM a Mark Goodson/Bill Toddman production.

    Favorite intro of all time:


    Love all the Doctor Who intros as well as The X-Files too.
    But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.--Isaiah 40:31

    “Everything’s impossible until somebody does it.” – Batman

    “You want weapons? We're in a library! Books! Best weapons in the world!"--The Doctor

    As for other intros, wow, just way to many to count. Off the top of my head:

    X-Men: TAS
    Spider-Man: TAS
    The Tick
    Superman: TAS
    Where On Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?
    Star Trek: TNG
    Knight Rider
    Perfect Strangers
    Ghostbusters
    Gargoyles
    Simpsons
    Stargate: SG-1

    Probably will post more when think of them.
    Great list. I'm also a big fan of The Tick.

    Great list. Glad to know someone still remembers W.I.T.C.H. (from Disney).

    In addition, I'm also a big fan of Spectacular Spider-Man.

    Subjective assessment, but tough to argue.

    Query: had anybody else ever used MI's gimmick of incorporating scenes from each episode de jour into the opening? That was extra-double cool. If for no other reason, it must have imposed extra cost on each episode (having to edit each episode's intro instead of just popping the stock footage in).

    Not every episode, but Buffy the Vampire Slayer did have two episodes where they changed the opening credits just for that episode.

    Sure: Space:1999 did in its first season, I,Spy did, and recently the rebooted Battlestar Galactica used that gimmick, too. I suspect Mission Impossible got the idea from the credits of the Bond movie Goldfinger, which showed scenes from the film overlaid on gold-painted body-parts in the opening credits.
