Richard Heene -- Check Out My Theme Songs!

10/20/2009 8:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richard Heene was so committed to getting his own reality show, he even went so far as to come up with his theme music -- because every wacky amateur scientist/handyman needs good theme music.

Heene worked with a guy named Smokey Miles (and Meson Music BMI) to compose theme songs in 2005 for two shows Heene cooked up -- "The Psyience Detective" and "The Contractor." And they are gems!

The first, which Richard played bass on, goes a little something like this:

Balloon boy"When you want to learn the mysteries of how things work
Weather, the planets, the whole universe.
Tune into the show, that's really effective
Watch Richard Heene -- Science Detective!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, we have "The Contractor":

"If you need it built or fixed,
There's just one man to pick ...
That's Richard Heene ... contractor

Gotta admit -- they're kinda catchy.

Some people should not be allowed to have children. This man is famous alright, famous for being an egotistical jerk and a bad parent. And the mother doesn't get off either. What kind of parents coach their children to lie to police, the media, whoever, if the lying gets the father what he wants. What kind of parents make their 6 year old sit on a couch with a bowl to throw up in on national TV? What, the poor boy couldn't go to the bathroom for privacy? These parents both are equally unfit to parent and both should be ashamed. I really feel sorry for the children.

Well this is interesting, in his "contractor song" he claims to be a licensed contractor in California, when searching the CSLB database there is a person named "Richard Heen" doing business as "HEENE" although that licensed expired in 2007.

So just what is this guy's name really? Heen or Heene? Why would he use a slightly different name on his contractor's license? Something is very fishy here....

this guy has managed to turn his whole family into a freak show, worst part they will probably get a show deal out of this just like Octomom.

Great minds think alike, I just read your post! (maybe we should get a show going)

35. Holy crap, how ridiculous! I have no doubt that this idiotic stunt will indeed get him his own show. In this country, we reward people for bad behavior....look at Octomom. She's getting a show and they built her a house! The first thing they need to do with this moron is sterilize him.

They were in it for the money    

Start counting how many nuts on the loose has been on tv reality? Guess producers don't care who the heck they hire as long as they make money. This is what happens when you have 25 and 30 year olds trying to run and dictate what we watch. Bring in the not so stable mabels and see what happens. I can't tell you of one great movie star out there now(except for Jack Nicholson), but I know we have more nobodys on tv shows, baring their idiot ways of life for us to watch. Bring back real entertainers; give us our variety shows back.

This guy is crazy. I really think he is mental . Maybe he is one of those people that think he is normal and the rest of us are not aka aliens i guess. Him & his wife both seem to much alike it could be an act to get attention from the both it's just sad that the kids are growing up to think this is normal.

I'm sure they have already fabricated their foil suits for the reality show's pilot.

It's sad to realize that at least 3 young children will not be "right" having been influenced by this man. Very sad.

My version of how the song should go:

When you want to learn the mysteries of how the system works;
Weather balloons going down in the dirt.
Ask the guy who's brain is defective
Richard Heene -- the Nutty Detective
