Today is Kenan Thompson's birthday! One half of Kenan and Kel, the teenage duo teamed up to star in pretty much the best kids' TV show of all time, with an intro song that's been permenantly stuck in our heads since the very first time we heard it.

Even if you weren't born way back in the '90s, there are loads of classic kids' TV show intros that'll make you want to go back in time.

Check out eight of our favourite and re-live that Saturday morning nostalgia... 

Kenan and Kel 

"Who loves orange soda?!" If you don't know the answer, we'll show you the door.

Performed by Coolio, siging along to the 'Kenan and Kel' intro song was the perfect start to anyone's weekend as a kid. We can't tell you how many hours of our lives were spent watching Kenan's crazy schemes crash and burn, while Kel drank an unhealthy amount of fizzy stuff.

Dragon Ball Z

Although it took Goku about seven episodes at a time to charge up enough energy to go Super Saiyan, it was always worth the wait.

The intro theme doesn't need much explaining, it's just 60 seconds of mental guitars, guaranteed to get you pumped to watch some superpowered ass-kicking.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Over 25 years old now, 'Fresh Prince' was Will Smith's first big TV break, playing a kid from West Philadelphia who gets sent to live with his wealthy aunt and uncle in Bel Air.

Pretty much everyone in the world knows every word to this intro, even if they've never watched an episode!

Pinky and the Brain 

Made back when Warner Brothers could get away with almost anything, 'Pinky and The Brain' was about two lab mice who wanted to take over the world.

Making fun of famous films with its storylines, Pinky and Brain's wacky ideas always ended in failure, but kept us hooked till the show ended in 1998.


One of the world's most popular kids' franchises (and a favourite of UK grime MC, JME), Pokemon is as big a deal today as it was when it first appeared on our TV screens.

Listen to this intro just once and you'll have the instant urge to be the very best, like no one ever was.

Are you afraid of the dark? 

Giving kids everywhere their daily nightmare inspiration, 'Are you afraid of the dark?' was Nickelodeon's answer to 'Goosebumps'.

Every evening, we'd watch the Midnight Society come together and tell their scary stories, and every night we'd have to sleep with the light on. Even the intro theme isn't something you'll want to listen to on your own.

Men In Black the animated series

Following on after the first MIB movie, the animated series picked up with agents K and J as they kept New York clean of intergalactic alien scum.

The theme tune to this is absolutely badass, and proves just how cool kids' shows were back in the '90s. Forget about CBeebies, MIB is where it's at.

Power Rangers 

Five teenagers "with attitude" are given special utility belts that allow them to become Lyrca wearing ninjas who fight massive monsters from outer space. Standard.

This one was such a classic that a reboot is currently in the works. We're not convinced about the idea yet, though.
