Composer of the Addams Family theme song passed away Saturday at age 93

Born in Brooklyn, Mizzy was most famous for writing the theme to 'The Addams Family' television program.

He composed the theme tune to 'The Addams Family' in the early 1960s, playing the harpsichord as well as singing the melody, overdubbing his vocals three times.

Addam's Family Theme

Last year Mizzy was interviewed on US TV channel CBS, and admitted that the Addams Family theme had served him well financially over the years, "That's why I'm living in Bel-Air," said Mizzy. Two finger snaps and you live in Bel-Air."

Mizzy died of heart failure at his Bel-Air, Los Angeles home on Saturday, October 17, 2009.
