The Love Boat Opening and Closing Theme 1977 - 1986



The Love Boat (Love Boat in its final season) is an American television series set on a cruise ship, which aired on the ABC Television Network from September 24, 1977, until May 24, 1986. The show starred Gavin MacLeod as the ship's captain. It was part of ABC's popular Saturday night lineup that included Fantasy Island until that show ended in 1984. The original 1976 made-for-TV movie on which the show was based (also titled The Love Boat) was itself based on the nonfiction book The Love Boats by Jeraldine Saunders, a real-life cruise director. Two more TV movies (titled The Love Boat II and The New Love Boat) would follow before the series began its run. The executive producer for the series was Aaron Spelling who produced several successful series for ABC from the 1960s to the 1980s. In 1997, the segments "Hidden Treasure", "Picture from the Past" and "Ace's Salary" were ranked #82 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time.The program ran for 10 seasons including specials.
