"Buffoon", a catchy yet strangely dark melody by Zez Confrey, was frequently used as a theme for the Farnsworth Four and Farnsworth and Katz pictures between 1932 and 1937. This recording by Nat Shilkret's Orchestra dates from May 1, 1932. Keen listeners may also recognize this tune from the 1934 Ub Iwerks' cartoon Balloonland. In later years, an abbreviated, updated version of "Buffoon" was used as the opening theme of The Farnsworth and Katz Show (1960-66). This is a fairly large .wav file (959KB). click here.
