The Merv Griffin Show - S9-E6

Trivia: When Kramer is hosting the show and starts getting a little nervous about Jerry's "questionable material" he tells Newman to put on a tape and it starts playing some music while he talks to Jerry. The music that he puts on is the same music they used in the episode "The Pilot (2)" for the "Jerry" pilot.

Trivia: Frank Costanza's distinctive way of talking was actually the result of Jerry Stiller constantly forgetting his lines.

The Muffin Tops - S8-E21

Trivia: Newman's appearance in the episode is an obvious reference to Harvey Keitel's character The Wolf in "Pulp Fiction". Before Newman arrives, Elaine mentions that he "makes problems go away" just like The Wolf. Newman even uses the same "If I'm curt" line.

The Finale (2) - S9-E24

Trivia: In the Seinfeld Finale, Jerry and George have a conversation in the jail cell about the positioning of a button on George's shirt. For those viewers who don't know or don't remember, that is why George asks, 'Haven't we had this conversation before?', because this is the same conversation that started off the series in the very first episode.

The Junk Mail - S9-E5

Trivia: At the beginning of the episode we see George on The Couch in Jerry's apartment reading a copy of GQ. On the cover is Marissa Tomei who George has a major crush on and in another episode had a dream sequence involving her in his apartment.

The Secret Code - S7-E7

Trivia: George's secret code is revealed to be Bosco. Earlier in the episode, when he is arguing with Susan about the secrets they keep from each other, he ends the scene by saying "We're out of Bosco."

The Revenge - S2-E7

Trivia: The idea of George returning to work and pretending he didn't really quit was based on a real-life incident. Before co-creating "Seinfeld", Larry David once yelled at a "Saturday Night Live" producer and stormed off the set (he was a sketch writer), only to return the following Monday and act as if it never happened. He actually got away with it.

The Jimmy - S6-E19

Jimmy: Oh yeah, Jimmy's ready. Check Jimmy out. Jimmy's got some new moves. [Slips and falls from the water.] Jimmy's down.

More quotes from Seinfeld

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
