It’s a blessing that it came back and lasted so long.”

Pierre Henry’s “Psyche Rock” is shockingly similar to the animated series’ theme.
For those too young to remember, Eddie Murphy once starred as the lead voice in a stop-motion animation program on Fox called The PJ’s. It was a comedy (sort of) about life in the projects that ran from 1999 to 2001. Anyway, check out the reference in this screen grab. Look really carefully at that milk carton.
Holy Shit. HOLY SHIT.
