European Version of Theme from "Tippi Thomas, Sociology Detective"

When "Tippi Thomas, Sociology Detective" ran in Europe, a much more visually radical version of the opening was used. Anticipating that American audiences would be overwhelmed and confused by the European opening, the producers of the show put together a more reserved version of the opening theme for stateside broadcast. This video shows the European opening in its entirety.

Theme from "Tippi Thomas, Sociology Detective"

Younger viewers may not have seen a single episode of the social science drama "Tippi Thomas, Sociology Detective" that aired on American TV over 25 years ago. However, many have heard the iconic theme song countless times, although without knowing its origin. The show technically had two opening themes, one a guitar-based, LSD-influenced, acid folk version for the show's run during the Carter administration and one a more sedate, solo piano, Mike Post-ish treatment for the Reagan years. In both cases, the featured performer was shown during the opening theme without his face being visible, gaining immediate cult hero status as the _cognoscenti_ speculated on whom he might be. The production company revealed only that the same man was present in each version, and his identity is known even today only to a very few super-hip industry insiders.
