Alvin & the Chipmunks - We're the Chipmunks. C-H-I-P-M-U-N-K. 
Casper - Casper, the friendly ghost, the friendliest ghost you know. 
Felix the Cat - You'll laugh so much your sides will ache, your heart will go pit-a-pat! 
The Flintstones - Flintstones, meet the Flintstones, they’re a modern stone age family. 
George of the Jungle - George, George, George of the jungle, friend to you and me! 
G.I. Joe - A real American hero, GI Joe is there! 
The Huckleberry Hound Show - It's Huckleberry fun, it's for everyone, so come on, gather 'round. 
Inspector Gadget - Go, Gadget, go! 
The Jetsons - Meet George Jetson... 
The Mighty Mouse Playhouse - Here I come to save the day! 
Popeye the Sailor - I'm strong to the finish 'cause I eats me spinach! 
The Road Runner Show - Roadrunner, the coyote's after you. Roadrunner, when he catches you you're through! 
Scooby Doo, Where Are You! - Scooby Doo if you come through you're gonna have yourself a Scooby snack. That's a fact! 
The Smurfs - La la la la la la, la la la la la!

I thought of that one also!  But I think the above lyrics to The Smurfs jogged my brain.  La la la la la etc...but good info about the Banana Splits song, it really is a good one!

FYC:

Adventures of the Gummi Bears (1985-1991)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088528/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Dashing and daring, courageous and caring
Faithful and friendly, with stories to share

Alternatively the chorus:

Gummi Bears!
Bouncing here and there and everywhere, high adventure that's beyond compare
They are the Gummi Bears

Jen, in the lyrics to the DuckTales song, it's actually meant to be ducktales, and not ducktails. :)

Jen,

The image for Casper the Friendly Ghost looks much better. Thanks.

By the way, my paternal Grandmother's maiden last name was Casper.

Many classic themes here but I wouldn't classify them among the random things that can be printed on a child's mind, they're childhood defining songs, the most likely to be forever rooted in memories.

Jen,

I remember the words to most of these songs and probably could sing them.

I voted for The Flintstones theme song.
