Mizzy's best-known works are the themes to the '60s TV hits 'The Addams Family' and 'Green Acres,' both of which still live in syndication. "If people only remembered me for the themes to 'The Addams Family' and 'Green Acres,' I wouldn't care," Mizzy was quoted as saying. "Two snaps got me a Bel Air mansion."
His TV work went far beyond those hits, as he contributed to the shows 'F Troop,' 'Mister Ed' and 'Petticoat Junction,' before also moving on to film scores, including the Don Knotts movies 'Ghost and Mr. Chicken' and 'The Reluctant Astronaut.'
According to a release, Mizzy is survived by his brother Sol, daughter Lynn Mizzy Jonas, her husband Phil, grandson David and granddaughter Rachel.
