Space Age Music Maker

Dean Elliott


Primarily a studio composer and arranger, Elliott produced one well-regarded space age pop album that mixes sound effects and Raymond Scott-like music to create audio cartoons: Zounds! What Sounds?. Among his other credits are the scores for the animated film, The Phantom Tollbooth, and the 1960s TV version of Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat. He also scored such memorable films as College Confidential and Sex Kittens Go to College. Elliott's music could be heard on television cartoons most Saturday mornings from the 1970s through the early 1990s, including:
