The Horn Meets “The Hornet”

This little bit of riffed heaven is from 1966, via a thrift store.  As some of  you younger hepcats may not know, Rimksy-Korsakov's "The Flight of the Bumble Bee" is the piece that was adapted for the title theme of this show.  It ran on ABC-TV for one season, 1966-67 and starred Van Johnson as the hero, with a then-unknown-in-America Bruce Lee as the sidekick Kato.

Here's the goods:

1. “Green Hornet” Theme
2. The Hornet’s Nest
3. Night Rumble
4. “Get Smart” Theme
5. Theme from “Run For Your Life”
6. “Batman” Theme
7. The “King Kong” Theme
8. The Monkees
9. Tarzan’s March
10. T.H.E. Cat
11. (Theme from) Run Buddy Run
