    LOS ANGELES The songwriter who wrote the catchy theme songs to "The Addams Family" and "Green Acres" television shows has died. Vic Mizzy was 93.
    His manager Jonathan Wolfson says Mizzy died Saturday at his home in Bel Air. He didn't know the cause of death.
    Mizzy got his start in vaudeville and wrote songs that were recorded by Dean Martin, Doris Day, Perry Como and Billie Holiday in the 1940s and 50s.
    His hits included "The Whole World Is Singing My Song" and "With a Hey and a Hi and a Ho-Ho-Ho."
    Mizzy has said that he didn't mind if people only remember him for the finger snaps at the start of the "The Addams Family" theme song. After all, he said "two snaps got me a mansion in Bel Air."

    The Addams Family is still a classic. An awful lot of TV themes up to the '80s have very distinct sounds.

    I miss the creativity of those guys.

    Cheers, Mr Mizzy and safe journey.
