Welcome to a new episode of the Geektown Behind The Scenes podcast. This week, I’m chatting with Carl Johnson, the composer behind the music for a brand new set of Looney Tunes Cartoons airing on HBO Max in the US. No news on where they may pop up in the UK at the moment, but you can watch some of them via the HBO Max YouTube channel

Carl Johnson is an Emmy-winning composer known for his work on ‘Animaniacs', ‘Gargoyles’, ‘Pinky and the Brain', 'Piglet's Big Movie’ among many others. He is one of two composers who scored the ‘Looney Tunes Cartoons’, which includes 80 eleven-minute episodes made up of animated shorts, each varying in length. In addition to composing, Carl is a highly sort after orchestrator, and has worked on films such as 'Skyfall', 'The Amazing Spider-man', 'WALL·E' and 'Finding Dory'.

In the interview, we discuss how it felt following in the footsteps of the legendary originator of the Looney Tunes sound, Carl Stalling, and reworking some of the classic compositions such as 'What's Up Doc'. We also chat about how critical the music is to these brilliant animated shorts, and about his rather unique approach (for today's composers) towards starting the composition process... with pencil and paper.
