This will be the start of a series of articles I'll be doing on the TV shows of my youth, entitled They Don't Make Them Like They Used To or TDMTLTUT for short. I'll be hoping to focus on two things. 1) The awesome theme tunes and 2) the bat shit insane stories. But mostly the awesome theme tunes. This week, I'm going with the under appreciated classic Ulysses 31.
This show was all kinds of fucked up. It was dark and slow paced which you would think made it unsuitable for kids but it was repeated constantly on TV and I loved it endlessly. If you can buy the DVD box set or legally acquire it from a torrent site, you won't regret it.
I've already got the theme tune stuck in my head just thinking about it. If you think of a cross between Daft Punk and the guy who sang the Pokemon theme tune, you'd be close. Luckily, because the Internet was designed to please my inner child, I don't have to try and describe it! Have a listen and enjoy humming it for the rest of the day.
This video also contains a quick "previously on" which will give you a good impression of what you're up against.
