Themetime Themes, Anomalous Instrumentals & Unsung Covers, Pt. 2

I remember all 3 of these tunes as themes for television shows back in the '60s. #1, "A Swingin' Safari," introduced, I think, The Match Game. #2, "The Syncopated Clock," signaled the beginning of more than one channel's late movie. #3, "Java," opened a hosted cartoon show in Los Angeles, the name of which I can no longer remember (I also tend to confuse #s 1 & 3 with "Baby Elephant Walk" and several tunes by The Tijuana Brass, which may also turn up here eventually).

Television swing!
