Loonatix

So, Loonatix Unleashed has always seemed forced. When they extended Duck Dodgers it worked better, but in thinking about why... maybe it's because the character of Duck Dodgers already existed, along with the very silly future world he lives in.

Today's episode had the Shropshire Slasher recast as the Smasher, and whenever he appeared they played a four-note "theme music stinger" and I'm very surprised they didn't have the characters recognize it and thus be warned that the Smasher was around. (Maybe they did and I didn't notice it.)
It was the first four notes of the theme from the old radio show "The Whistler" and I have no idea whether or not they used it knowing what it was. I'd have to dig out a copy of Deduce, You Say! and watch it again.
