Five pages in this thread already and evidently I'M the only one here who remembers the works of the great jazz composer, arranger and record producer Pete Rugolo (1915-2011).

For the uninitiated here, Mr. Rulogo wrote the TV theme songs for MANY television programs back in the 1950s-'70s and such as for Leave It to Beaver, Thriller, Checkmate and many more, and with MY personal favorite of his being the following...

Ah yes! And in the background behind Lloyd here, the cliffs of beautiful Palos Verdes, California.

 I was wondering when you were going to poke your Buntline into this thread, Dargo!

Another composer of note for some of the most memorable TV series theme songs from the distant past (speaking of "Old School" here NoShear...and, thanks for holding down the fort here in my absence ;) ) would be Nelson Riddle (1921-1985).

 Dargo, do you remember the "cliff diver" at Marineland of the Pacific?

 Here's a "stunt double" for the aforementioned - seconding what someone else commented, I would still be up there:
