The Charles in Charge theme is the theme song to the 1980s CBS sitcom Charles in Charge. It was composed by David Kurtz, Michael Jacobs, and Al Burton, and performed by Shandi Sinnamon. The theme music was mellower in the first season, and was remixed for the syndication run.
In The Thin White Line, it is revealed Peter Griffin once worked as as a security guard for George Harrison from The Beatles on the night he was attacked by an assailant. Peter is in a guard hut with his feet up and is watching the show while singing along to the theme music. Meanwhile, a knife-wielding man scales the fence behind him and runs into the house followed by much commotion.
