Can a theme song be TOO catchy?

Cartoon Network is premiering a new version of the George of the Jungle cartoon (that of the "watch out for that tree!" theme song) tonight at 7:30. Thus, of course, I've had that freaking song stuck in my head all afternoon. And I can't decide if it's awesomely catchy, or dangerously catchy. You know, to the point where it could take over the nation like an aural virus, sending us (further?) into a recession by destroying worker productivity as everyone just sits at their desks, humming. If that ends up being the case, I apologize for posting the following video:

I had the same problem earlier this week! And, damn you, now it's stuck in my head again.

*goes away humming*

I'd say I'm sorry, but it's a well-known fact that the only cure for having a song stuck in your head is getting it stuck in someone else's head. Mission accomplished!

It's not nearly as catchy as Super Chicken or even Hong Kong Phooey.

While I will give Hong Kong Phooey props for being a superior song, I'm still gonna say George of the Jungle is catchier. I don't think I know the Super Chicken one...
