Then-ABC executive Michael Eisner turned the songs into a series of animated videos that appeared between Saturday morning cartoon shows for 12 years. In fact, reading that sentence probably has you humming one right now, maybe "Conjunction Junction" or "Electricity, Electricity", and it now will be stuck in your head all day. He ended up writing and recording "Three Is A Magic Number" and became the musical director of Schoolhouse Rock!

His son, Chris, confirmed that Dorough died of natural causes Monday at his home in Mount Bethel, Pennsylvania.

Born in Arklansas, Mr. Dorough took up music while serving in the Army bands during World War II and received a music degree from what is now the University of North Texas after the war.

He sang for trumpeter Miles Davis' "Blue Xmas", displaying a humor similar to what would be featured on the television series.

The jazz musician's touch extended far past the piano keys.

In addition to headlining Berks Jazz Fest shows, Dorough worked with the festival's educational team and shared his love of music with students who hoped to follow in his footsteps.

According to CNN, Bob Dorough's educational songwriting began when he was approached in 1971 by a NY advertising exec whose sons could not multiply. There he began performing at nightclubs and making a name for himself as a musician. Sometimes, guests were called in to sing them.

"I'm very proud of the songs I wrote and actually of the whole project", Dorough said in a 2006 interview with Arkansongs host Stephen Koch. "And in my mind I thought, why not educate and entertain all ages", Dorough said.

"Knowing Bob, you wanted to get close to him".

The songs were immensely popular.

The tribute album Schoolhouse Rock! It was nominated for eight Emmy Awards, winning four. After setting the multiplication tables to music with the song "Three's a Magic Number", Bob knew he had something.

Bob Dorough, the "Schoolhouse Rock" performer and writer, died Monday at the age of 94. She had never heard of Dorough, but she recognized the voice. You'd say, 'Hey, Miles, I really dug that set!' and he wouldn't stop. In 1995, he signed with Blue Note Records, a distinguished NY jazz label that's produced records by John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk and Art Blakey.

In 2002 his trio was chosen to represent the State Department and Kennedy Center, as an Ambassador of Jazz and Blues.

The song smith taught not just children, but other musicians. The one-month tour saw them play some 22 workshops and concerts in thirteen cities in six different countries.
