Here are the best covers of cartoon theme songs, according to me.
5. Josie and the Pussycats - Juliana Hatfield and Tanya Donelly
Sure they made a movie or something out of this cartoon. But the theme song from that is not available. But this is. Great song.
4. Scooby Doo, Where Are You? - Matthew Sweet
I honestly thought this would end up higher, but there are too many good candidates.
3. Sugar Sugar (The Archies) - Mary Lou Lord w/ Semisonic
Had to find a cover of this to include it. The original was great. This might be better.
2. Hong Kong Phooey - Sublime
This was actually a really cool original with Scatman Crothers as the original Henry. Sublime took it to another level.
1. The Tra La La Song (Banana Splits) - Liz Phair
This may be the best cartoon theme song of all time. Liz Phair just made it cooler.
Although, this one may not be fair since the Banana Splits wasn't totally a cartoon. But it's my list.
