Or is this the greatest Internet hoax no one is talking about?

Both IMDB and Wikipedia seem to agree that Inside the Actor’s Studio host James Lipton did indeed write the theme to Thundercats. If this is true it’s pretty f’ing cool. We’re just not so sure. What do you think?

    Not impressed, I can come up with that.

    Poopy, pooPY, poopy, poop. My stool is so loose.

    Poopy, pooPY, poopy, poop. Musta been the juice.

    Sing that in your head to the theme song.

    Seriously, loved the show but it’s like, 8 words in the whole song.

      So, your saying that songs with no lyrics are especially stupid, because anyone can just come up with a catchy tune?

    Not true! It was Jules Bass and Bernard Hoffer.

    Sorry to piss on your bonfire :(

      Oh, I wouldn’t call our reaction ‘disappointment’ per se. More like deep seated admiration for the internet pranksters that managed to get Lipton’s name attached to the show on multiple IMDB pages as well as Wikipedia.

    The wikipedia line is easily dismissed (unsubtly tacked onto the end of a paragraph) but I was impressed with the effort put into the IMDB page too.

    I’ve been trying to think of awesome examples of people you wouldn’t expect to write theme tunes but the best I can come up with is Dennis Waterman doing Minder. Don’t know if that means a thing to you in the US though!

    Why not. I’ll buy it. Some people have crazy ass hidden talent. My grandma was the voice of Mr. Roboto.
