Do any of you old fogies remember Peter Gunn?

My cable TV and Internet were down this evening.  My 10-year-old granddaughter, Monica, was stuck on the tune of "The Pink Panther", humming it constantly, and I figured I'd give her something better to dwell on.  I searched the music on my computer and found "The Theme From Peter Gunn".

I was only a little surprised that she and Natalie both loved it.  In fact, Monica kept coming to the computer and replaying it on my Windows Media Player. 

Amazing how I remember very little about the actual show, which first aired in 1958... but I'll go to my grave with that song in my head and in my soul.

I remember the name Peter Gunn but I don't believe I ever saw an episode.  I was born in 1959.

I vaguely remember him but can't quite get it all together to the tune you are talking about. All that comes in my mind is the theme song from Dragnet.LOL, Helen

Oh my yes, do I remember "Peter Gunn" and Henri Mancini's music.  "The Brothers go to Mother's", "The One Eyed Cat" and then there was the logo of the one eyed cat.  My dad bought me a 3 foot, orange, ceramic one eyed cat and don't you know I thought I was something.  In fact, I believe I have 2, 33s in a box hidden away with those phonograph records in it.  For some reason, I just can't part with any of them.

Talk about being an old fogey.  LOL LOL

I remember Peter Gunn and I love the theme music.  I probably actually watched the re-runs, but I do remember the theme, just not any particdular episodes.
