6. The Pink Panther
Winner of three Grammys, an Academy Award nomination, and a top 10 spot in the charts in 1964, Henry Mancini's theme for the Pink Panther is one of the most famous pieces of music in film history. The cartoon panther created for the opening credits of the movie by David DePatie and Friz Freleng was animated in time to the tune.
