Scharf, Walter (1910–2003)

Mister Magoo’s Christmas Carol (1962)

Mister Magoo’s Christmas Carol features songs with lyrics by Bob Merrill (1921–88) and music by Jule Styne (1905–94). Walter Scharf conducted the recording sessions and provided additional incidental music.

“This is the one that started it all! The first-ever animated holiday special made for television stars the hilariously nearsighted Mr. Magoo in a musical retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol.” Featuring original songs by Broadway legends Jule Styne and Bob Merrill (Funny Girl), this family classic stars the voice talents of Jim Backus (Gilligan’s Island), Morey Amsterdam (The Dick Van Dyke Show), Jack Cassidy and June Foray (The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle).” [from DVD case]
