UPA COMPOSER PASSES AWAY

David Raksin, who scored several classic UPA cartoons in the 1950s, including The Unicorn in the Garden, Madeline, Sloppy Jalopy and Giddyap, passed away Monday at age 92. Of course, Raksin is much more famous for Laura, The Bad and the Beautiful and dozens of other classic feature film scores… but we at Cartoon Brew tip our hats to Raksin for his innovative animation music.
