Oglio Records President Carl Caprioglio states "Television's Greatest Hits is a brand with terrific history and respect in the minds of consumers. I am thrilled that The Bicycle Music Company has trusted Oglio with this treasure.

Like all great TV shows, the legendary Television’s Greatest Hits series is making a comeback. The ground-breaking series, originally released by TVT Records in 1985-1996, found the perfect reissue home with the offbeat label, Oglio Records by way of arrangement with The Bicycle Music Company. The series has often been imitated but the eight volume series remains the gold standard in television theme collections.

Oglio Records is initially releasing television themes bundled into “6-Packs” starting with “Classic Sitcoms” (9/6/11); “Cop Shows” (9/20/11); “Adventure” (10/4/11); “Classic Kids” (10/18/11); “Westerns” (11/1/11); “60’s Sitcoms” (11/15/11); “Classic Sitcoms II” (11/29/11); “Detective Shows” (12/13/11); and “Classic Comedy” (12/27/11).

Television theme highlights of the initial 6-Pack releases include: Gilligan's Island, Dennis The Menace, Leave It To Beaver, The Andy Griffith Show, The Honeymooners, WKRP In Cincinnati, The Mod Squad, Adam-12, Kojak, Hill Street Blues, Lost In Space, Captain Kangaroo, Merrie Melodies, Road Runner, Underdog, Looney Tunes, Bonanza, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, The Munsters, Petticoat Junction, The Dick Van Dyke Show, That Girl, The Bob Newhart Show, Family Affair, Secret Agent Man, Magnum P.I., Get Smart, The Tonight Show, Pink Panther, The Jackie Gleason Show, You Bet Your Life, and The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Full album collections are being planned for release in 2012.
