Proof Of The Genius Of Neal Hefti

"I tore up a lot of paper. It did not come easy to me. . . . I just sweated over that thing, more so than any other single piece of music I ever wrote. I was never satisfied with it."

Believe me, we are. Neal Hefti, a television icon, dead at 85.

I have to confess, this was one of those for me that I did the "He was alive?" double-take for, which isn't that common for me.

It's nice to see a tribute here. That is a truly amazing theme... and along with the Dick Sprang style animation, it's just a perfect title sequence.
