Lorenzo Music

Lorenzo Music, voice actor and Emmy-winning producer who co-created “The Bob Newhart Show” and “Rhoda,” died Saturday of cancer at his home in Los Angeles. He was 64.

The Brooklyn native won an Emmy in 1980 in the animated-program category for “Carlton Your Doorman.” He voiced the unseen character of the same name on TV’s “Rhoda” from 1974-1978.

Music also co-wrote the theme song for “The Bob Newhart Show” with his wife, Henrietta, and served as one of the show’s producers.

Music also lent his vocal talents to characters such as Tummi Gummi on “The Gummi Bears,” Dunder on “Tale Spin” and Garfield the Cat in the “Garfield” toon series.

He is survived by his wife and four children.

Donations in his name can be made to the Subud Intl. Cultural Association, 5828 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. 90036.

A memorial service will be held at 7:00 p.m. Monday at the Writers Guild of America in Beverly Hills.
