Wonderful Tunes Provided By Friends. Wild Tangents Provided By Me.

RIP Sid Melton

Actor Sid Melton passed away November 2. He was 94. His career spanned nearly 6 decades and he worked on some of the best known, best loved television shows of all time. He worked in several feature films, two of which were featured on the show Mystery Science Theater 3000. There are plenty of clips on You Tube which feature the comedic talent of Sid Melton but few of them also feature music which is, after all, the purpose of this blog. I did manage to find this clip with the opening theme song for “Captain Midnight” which was Sid’s first television role. The music was composed by Don Ferris and Irving Friedman. The clip also shows the beginning of the episode which features Sid as Ichabod “Ikky” Mudd, the captain’s faithful and wacky sidekick.

RIP Mr. Melton
