With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.

Gilligan's Island
The Brady Bunch
Petticoat Junction
The Beverly Hillbillies
The Odd Couple

...are all great theme songs that lyrically tell the premise of the series. An especially hard feat to pull off.  Special kudos to the Odd Couple for having the witty dry voice over then the groovy instrumental theme kicks in.
