Can you guess the '70s sitcom from just two words of the theme song?

It helps to sing the themes in your head.

The Seventies were a particularly great era for sitcom theme songs. Several of them even made the charts!

Perfect Score! BTW most misunderstood sitcom theme song lyric as "Hangin' and a jiving" on Good Times. ☺

11/12! Better than the 6/11 I somehow got on the 60s.

You got 11 out of 12 - Keep on truckin'! You sure seem to know your sitcom themes! I missed #11 as well. I think these lyrics are from Season 1 because I don't think they are part of what most would consider the more popular version of the theme song. After ruling out MTM and knowing that TBNS does not have lyrics, I had to guess Angie, even though I never watched the show. Oh well. :(

11/12 I can't believe I missed #11 and that's the one I've heard the most. Joan Jett does a great version of it. By the end of the quiz I too many theme songs running through my head I couldn't think straight.

Yep, it's the one that I missed as well.
I missed that one as well. I think it's easy to miss because the song (and the show) are generally very "upbeat" and those two words taken out of the full line are rather "downbeat". If you can run the full song through your head, you get it. If you have only a patial memory or "sense" of the song, it doesn't seem to fit.
