Haven't seen an "In the News" segment for a looong time. Love how loud that arpeggio mantra is over the whole intro and how the arpeggio seems to break loose at the end. Amazing.I almost entirely blocked the Monster Squad from memory and I'm not sure why. Love and remember the theme song, but I'm thinking now that I might have been outraged at the campification of my monster heroes. Have you seen any episodes?
I watched Monster Squad every week, but not since I was six or seven. There don't seem to be any full episodes online. And I was also disappointed, even at the time, that classic horror archetypes were being neutered, but it was the zeitgeist of 60's-70's pop culture (Addams Family, the Munsters, Groovie Goolies, Count Chocula, Paul Williams).
Also, I'll bet dollars-to-donuts that the "In the News" theme is one of the many TV commissions recorded by Suzanne Ciani and her Buchla.
