I still have to think about this but I got the images above by doing a google image search for "tv show intro" and I will have the Gummi Bears theme song in my head for the rest of the day.

Perfect Strangers
Scarecrow and Mrs King
Bewitched/I Dream of Jeannie
Cosby Show (always keeping it fresh, which leads to....)
Fresh Prince.

MacGyver was good too.

Also, when I was little, sometimes I would pretend I was in a TV intro and stop and smile randomly for the "camera." I liked to do this while setting the table.

In terms of an intro, I'll say the one for Cold Case is underrated. Always made the show seems 1000% better than it actually was.

Garth Merenghi's DARK PLACE deserves a nod.

I don't have five but I have one major favorite - remember Swans
Crossing?? The song, the dancing and the car blowing up. Loved it.

In no particular order:

Cheers

The Wire, 6 Feet Under (great shows too), Magnum P.I., Miami Vice, True Blood opening is great too (in my opinion the best part of the show)

Wonder Years is a good call though too.
