Not necessarily. Much as I love the He-Man cartoon music, I actually prefer the movie score by Conti. Much as I love the original Superfriends theme, I found the first Justice League cartoon theme far more stirring. Though I'll never get the 60's cartoon Superman theme out of my head, nothing sends a chill down my spine like Williams movie music. And while I grew up on the classic Batman TV theme, both the Burton movie theme and the music from Batman: Mask of the Phantasm put it to shame. Then again, nothing I've heard in any later versions of GI Joe, cartoon or movie, replace the original theme for me.
