About the Author:

Daniel Goldmark is an assistant professor of music at the University of Alabama and for four years was an editor and producer for Rhino Records; his Tunes for ’Toons is scheduled to be published in 2003. He lives in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Yuval Taylor is the editor of A Cappella; his edited collections include The Future of Jazz and I Was Born a Slave. He lives in Chicago.

From Booklist:

Ever since Walt Disney synchronized Mickey Mouse to "Turkey in the Straw" in 1928, music has been as integral to animated cartoons as talking animals and falling anvils. The vital contributions of cartoon composers over the years have remained largely unsung, but this compilation of some 30 essays and interviews goes a long way toward rectifying that slight. Historically, the collection begins in the golden age of the Hollywood cartoon, with a rare interview with Warner Brothers composer Carl Stalling and two essays by his MGM counterpart, Scott Bradley. The often cheesy but fondly remembered music for '60s and '70s TV toons is well considered in such pieces as a look at such two-dimensional rock bands as Alvin and the Chipmunks and the Archies. The contemporary cartoon resurgence is represented by interviews with former Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh, now reaching a younger audience with Rugrats, and Alf Clausen, who parodies genres from rock to show tunes on The Simpsons. An invaluable resource that provides fascinating insights into a heretofore-neglected aspect of cinema history. Gordon Flagg
