Inspired by the zoobster, I created this mp3 of Williams' zany title theme (out of a youtube video) for this 1966 show that only ran for four episodes:

The episode available on youtube is not scored by Williams, but does anyone know if he did the scores proper? Or was it just the theme?

Here ya go:

John Williams scored episodes:
"Officer's Mess" 9/8/1966
"How to Steal a Girl Even If It's Only Me"
9/15/1966
"Tammy Takes Las Vegas, or Vice Versa"
9/22/1966
"Positively Made in Paris"
9/29/1966

These episodes never aired but may have contained music by Williams:
"George Washington Didn't Sleep Here"
"Send a Rich Girl to Camp This Summer"
"Tammy Plays Cupid"
"A Funny Thing Happened to Me on the Way to the Studio"
"Tamantha Nightingale Rides Again"
"Diamonds Are a Bird's Best Friend"

That can't be, because one of those episodes are up on youtube, and some guy named Warren Barker (?) scored the episode. Williams only did the theme.

You've never heard of Warren Barker? The man who wrote the themes for BEWITCHED and 77 SUNSET STRIP?

Ah, Thor-- you are so naive/ignorant of American culture....big grin

That's what I get for passing on information I got from a "reliable source" with out verifying.
Thanks, Thor for alerting me to this error and my apologies!

Wow! Very cool! I already have my Morricone and Goldsmith pieces heavily influenced by Burt Bacharach. Now I have an ideal Williams one.
Bacharach was something to contend with in those days.

I don't even know who Tammy Grimes is. I presume she's some sort of entertainment person a la the gal in I LOVE LUCY.

She made at least one album, which I own, God knows where it is. I'll find out.

Tammy Grimes is the daughter of Christopher Plummer.

The I Love Lucy theme was composed by Elliot Daniel and arranged by Wilbur Hatch.

That's what happens when you read the FSM board while you're mixing an upcoming release.

According to the Williams buyer's guide in FSM (which I often use for reference), he wrote 2-3 episode scores as well. Well, he didn't write the one that's available on youtube, so it must be the others then (or some of the unaired ones).
