Season Two brought a new video version of the show's theme song which incorporates segments of the first season opener with added clips from various episodes.  The show's logo has changed notably from the first season's and is a step closer to the more polished and recognizable logo which would be used from season three and on.  We see abbreviated segments of Larry and Balki leaving their homes to go to Chicago (see Season One credits for an overview of these scenes).


As we pass under the Welcome to Chicago sign a bottom to top wipe starts the montage of clips from upcoming and past episodes of the series.  First is Balki entering the apartment for the first time and hugging a shocked Larry from Knock Knock . . . Who's There?  Then the Dance of Joy as performed in the upcoming episode Babes in Babylon.  We next see Balki signaling right and knocking Larry off the coffee table from last season's Baby, You Can Drive My Car.  And then the necktie hand-slapping sequence from First Date.


Next is a clip from Picture This in which Larry and Balki are doing their talking about women bit.  The next shot of Larry trying to throw his jacket onto the closet door rack is actually an outtake from the episode Babes in Babylon which never appeared in the final episode!  Then we have Balki doing the feather duster dance from Knock, Knock . . . Who's There?  Last is a clip from Falling in Love Is . . . in which Balki picks up a running Larry with his legs still spinning as he's lifted off the ground.  NOTE: For at least the very first episode of season two (Hello, Baby) the final clip is of Balki and Larry sliding down the front doorway to the ground from the end of Hunks Like Us.
