Joe Raposo
Birth: Feb. 8, 1937
Fall River
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Feb. 5, 1989
Westchester County
New York, USA

Prolific film and TV composer/lyricist of the 1960s-1980s. Wrote much of the music and songs heard on Sesame Street, including such classics as "Bein' Green" and the music for "Rubber Ducky" as well as the Oscar Nominated song in The Great Muppet Caper, "The First Time It Happens." He also composed the music for the children's TV series Shining Time Station. Quoted in a New York Times article, he said "I want to describe the promise of every morning and the curiosity and hope in every child's face. I would like to think that this theme of hope and wonder is at the root of all my work." (bio by: Celia Foster)
