    The ventures did a version of Hawaii 5-0. In my humble opinion it was awful.

    Back in the 90s there was a compilation CD of different bands and artists doing classic TV Themes.

    My fave was this one. A fella named Victor Mizzy doing his best Sinatra, covering the great Addams Family theme. It's a hoot and a half:

    Used to have the 7" single of this. I think this was the B-side to "Makes No Sense At All" if my memory serves (of which there is a 50/50 chance.)

    What I love about this is that they didn't "camp it up." It's heartfelt and un-ironic. It is just killer.

    Vic Mizzy wrote the song. And Green Acres too. Vic was a smart guy. Kept his publishing instead of signing it over to the studios for a reduced composer fee. Lived in a big house in Bel Air thanks to his smart business guts. :)
