This month we offer a set of trivia questions based on TV theme songs.  I am going to supply the second line of each theme. You need to guess "what show" and the "first line" to the lyrics.

Here's the story of a lovely lady
Who was bringing up three very lovely girls.
All of them had hair of gold, like their mother,
The youngest one in curls.
                              --The Brady Bunch
Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,
Greenest state in the land of the free.
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree,
Killed him a bear when he was only three. 
Davy, Davy Crockett King of the Wild Frontier.
-Disney's Davy Crockett
Green acres is the place for me.
Farm livin' is the life for me.
Land spreadin' out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.

                               --Green Acres


Here he comes, here he comes
There's the trumpets, there's the drums, here he comes.
Hopalong Cassidy, here he comes.

                               --Hopalong Cassidy


Who is the tall, dark stranger there?
Maverick is the name.
Ridin' the trail to who knows where,
Luck is his companion,
Gamblin' is his game.
Smooth as the handle on a gun.
Maverick is the name.
Wild as the wind in Oregon,
Blowin' up a canyon,
Easier to tame.



Beyond the rim of the starlight,
my love is wandering in star flight.
I know he'll find
In star clustered reaches
Love, strange love
A starwoman teaches.

                              --Star Trek
*This was a trick question. The musical score for Star Trek was composed by Alexander Courage. The above lyrics were written to match the music score but never used on TV. 


Dobie, wants a little cutie,
Dobie, wants a little beauty,
Dobie want a gal to call his own
Any size, any style, any eyes, any smile, any Jean, any Jane, nay Joan.

                              -The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis

Note: I couldn't give you the second line without giving the  answer away, thus the fourth line.


Want you to meet the family that's known as 
The Real McCoys.
From West Virginee they came to stay in sunny Californi-ay.
That's Grand Pappy Amos and the girls and the boys of the family known as the Real McCoys.

                              --The Real McCoys


There's a hold up in the Bronx,
Brooklyn's broken out in fights.
There's a traffic jam in Harlem
That's backed up to Jackson Heights.
There's a scout troop short a child,
Kruschev's due at Idlewild
Car 54, Where Are You

                             --Car 54, Where Are You?
Early to rise, early to bed.
In and between I cooked and cleaned and went 
out of my head.
Going through life with blinders on, it's tough to see.
I had to get up, get out from under and look for me.
There's a new girl in town and she's looking good.
There's a fresh freckled face, in the neighborhood.
There's a new girl in town, with a brand new style.
She was just passing through,
but if things work out she's gonna stay awhile.
