This was originally two quizzes, but has been combined into one so that we could remove many of the harder answers.

How can twice as many people know the horse one (from the 1950s-early '60s) than the last one (running 7 years in the 2000s)? How old are Jetpunkers anyway?

I never saw it, but I couldn't think of any other show about a horse. Unfortunately, I typed "Ed" and it didn't take, and moved on, so I didn't contribute to your statistical observation..

Never could make out the lyrics to the Batman theme. Mystery solved. It'll take me a while to memorize them, but I'll get there.

For those who remember Mr. Ed and Gilligan's Island, etc., see if you can tell which TV Show had a theme song with these as the lyrics:

Well now take down your fishin' pole
And meet me at the fishin' hole
We may not get a bite all day
But don't you rush away
What a great place to rest your bones
And mighty fine for skippin' stones
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade
A-settin' in the shade
Whether it's hot
Whether it's cool
Ohhh, what a spot
For whistlin' like a fool
What a fine day to take a stroll
And wander by the fishin' hole
I can't think of a better way
To pass the time of day

Here's a hint: the tune was only whistled on the show, never sung.
Answer: The Andy Griffith Show <-- drag mouse over to reveal answer.
