TV Sounds

So I’m watching Law and Order and I’m reminded of a post I thought about last week. What is your favorite “trademark sound” from tv shows and/or the one you find the most distinctive. Not theme song, just a sound or few notes. Examples:

  • Patatuhh. Patatatatuh! (with fast cuts of NY landscape) on the dearly departed NYPD Blue.
  • TunnTung. on Law and Order, at every transition. As Lightspeedchick would say: Murder, tunntung, get in the car tunntung, talk to judge, tunntung.
  • Twing twing! Pah pah twing twing!! the background music playing every time Kirk on the original Star Trek was fighting a purple guy with horns so he could get his hands on the purple chick in a bathing suit.
