Sesame Street: Animal Elevators

Sesame Street had a new curriculum that included the introduction of addition and subtraction for preschoolers, and we were asked to pitch an idea. This is a compilation of 2 Animal Elevators' spots- both subtraction and addition.

What could be better than an elevator where characters come and go? And they can enter and exit in groups, not just one by one.

I wrote some lyrics and Lanny Meyers wrote the music, and Lanny insisted that I join ASCAP.

Because I still get statements from ASCAP-- a few dollars each quarter, I know they're still playing it these days!
