RIP: Vic Mizzy, TV and film composer

From the NY Daily News:

Brooklyn-born songwriter Vic Mizzy, who had a string of No. 1 pop hits and penned the memorable theme songs for the 1960s sitcoms "Green Acres" and "The Addams Family," died Saturday. He was 93.

Mizzy's popular hits included "Pretty Kitty Blue Eyes" and "The Whole World Is Singing My Song," as well as novelty hits like "With a Hey and a Hi and a Ho-Ho-Ho."

Mizzy said he didn't mind if people remember him only for the finger snaps at the start of the "The Addams Family" theme song, according to a statement from his publicist. After all, he said, "Two snaps got me a mansion in Bel Air."
