Here is an ’80s afterschool syndicated obscurity, Beverly Hills Teens, about the fabulous lives of rich teenagers in Beverly Hills, a subject that never fails to get a show on the air, does it? While the premise is ordinary, this opening sequence is absolutely insane. Set to music that is extraordinarily reminiscent to the Pointer Sisters’ “Neutron Dance” from Beverly Hills Cop is a rapid-fire montage of images of wealthy people doing wealthy people things, with the animation veering wildly between the Jem and the Holograms-esque with shots that seemingly came out of Maus or the work of pioneering ’80s graffiti artist Keith Haring.
