Lidsville Opening & Closing Themes

I have a weak spot for all the Sid & Marty Kroftt shows, and kids Tee Vee in general, but the theme song to Lidsville is extra special cool. I think it a bit like Jellyfish. And I really dig how the music changes from bubble gum to popcorn-like when they get into Lidsville.
