Three of television’s most iconic theme songs – Happy Days, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Friends – get a WandaVision spin in this new parody video.
WandaVision gets theme songs inspired by Happy Days, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Friends in a new fan video. Marvel’s first Disney+ series took audiences on a wild ride through television’s past while hinting at the MCU’s future. WandaVision starred Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, and Paul Bettany as synthezoid Vision in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. The two had seemingly found their perfect happily ever after, but it soon became clear that things were amiss in the idyllic town of Westview. Wanda’s reality-bending magic had given them a beautiful life, but it sadly was not meant to last.
Much of WandaVision‘s 9-episode run offered homages to some of the most iconic sitcoms of all time. The series began in the 1950s with a Dick Van Dyke/I Love Lucy-esque story and went all the way through the 2010s, employing the mockumentary style made popular with shows like Modern Family and The Office. Television lovers enjoyed the little details that allowed WandaVision to fit these well-known styles, including the theme songs that kicked off each installment.
Though WandaVision covered numerous TV shows, there are some big ones it ignored. Now, that has been rectified – somewhat, at least. A new video from popular parody channel The Warp Zone creates three new theme songs for WandaVision, and it’s immediately clear which shows they’ve picked. They have some of the most iconic themes in television history. Settle in and listen to Vision and Wanda’s takes on Happy Days, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Friends.
Naturally, the parody WandaVision themes are littered with spoilers, and the Happy Days one even includes a cameo from White Vision, SWORD’s attempt at weaponizing the snythezoid. White Vision’s presence on WandaVision stirred up some controversy, since Bettany teased fans for weeks about a secret actor he was thrilled to work with. In the end, he was talking about himself as White Vision. Some fans were less than pleased. Nevertheless, WandaVision was generally praised by fans and critics, with many complimenting how the series handled Scarlet Witch’s deep-seated grief.
Now the Marvel show of the moment is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but WandaVision has certainly cemented its place among the biggest shows of the year. With its sitcom homages and character-driven story, the series managed to highlight what the MCU’s new streaming shows are capable of. Scarlet Witch will definitely be back in a future Marvel project, though it remains to be seen if the curiously missing White Vision will be too. Only time will tell.
