The theme song for this show was the same as for the radio version: The Flight of the Bumble Bee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. It was significantly rearranged for the television series by Billy May who gave it a big band jazz style that was nicknamed Green Bee. The theme is best known for the trumpet solo played by Al Hirt.

Narrator: Another challenge for the Green Hornet, his aide Kato, and their rolling arsenal, the Black Beauty. On Police records a wanted criminal, Green Hornet is really Britt Reid, owner-publisher of the Daily Sentinel, his dual identity known only to his secretary and to the district attorney. And now, to protect the rights and lives of decent citizens, rides THE GREEN HORNET."
