This week, we launched a new round of Me Madness, a bracket that pits the greatest TV theme songs in head to head battles to answer that ultimate question: What's the best TV theme song ever? You can vote now in our Me Madness Theme Song Throwdown bracket here.

So it delighted us to see that last night The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon took a page from our songbook and hosted Will Smith singing a remix of classic TV theme songs with the latest late night funnyman. The result would put a smile on any TV fan's face.

The segment opens up with Smith and Kimmel singing, "Thank you for being a friend" from The Golden Girls, then it crosses over into the '70s for The Jeffersons, Diff'rent Strokes and Good Times. As they cycle through some of the best TV theme songs, they even flip the screen to black and white for a whistled segment dedicated to The Andy Griffith Show. Of course, it all leads to Smith reviving his performance of the theme for the sitcom that launched him to stardom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Watch the full performance below:
