A full year since we featured the 8-bit title screens he created for the project, Levi "Doctor Octoroc" Buffum (8-Bit Jesus, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Game) has finally released his album of chiptunes based on classic TV shows, cartoons, and commercials.
Titled "After These Messages", the 30-plus-track release offers arrangements for themes like The Fresh Prince, Big Red Gum, Beverly Hills 90210, Night Court, Diff'rent Strokes MacGyver, Fraggle Rock, ALF, Saved By The Bell, and many others.
"Each track is arranged as the theme song for a theoretical 8-bit video game, much like titles found on the Nintendo Entertainment System," says the artist.
The complete collection is available for a "pay-what-you-want" price, so you can donate as little as a penny (or much more, if you're nicer and have the money to spare) to get it. You can preview five tracks from "After These Messages" on Doctor Octoroc's 8bc page.
