Remember those catchy ditties that ushered in your favorite TV shows of the 1970s and 1980s? Reissue- and oddity-mad Rhino Records brings those novel, sometimes wacky, often downright tacky songs to your CD player with the three-volume series “Tube Tunes.” The numbers range from the obscure to classics such as “Movin’ on Up” and “Love Boat Theme.”

The discs are fun, but skimpy on playing time.
