Video of the Week: Believe It or Not

This week, I'd like to go back in time to revisit yet another old (yet cool) TV show opening.

In The Greatest American Hero, which debuted in 1981, Ralph Hinkley receives a super suit from aliens, but they forget to give him the instruction booklet.  He must discovers its powers on his own.  The result is a pretty funny and human TV show that I loved growing up.

The song itself, Believe It or Not, easily gets stuck in your head.  It hit #2 on the charts in August 1981.  The result is a song known by many today, not knowing it came from a quirky and funny sci-fi 80's show.

And as a bonus, here is George Costanza using the song on his answering machine ...
