Ed Bogas (full name Edgar Noel Bogas) is a San Francisco-based composer and arranger who wrote the Sesame Street song "Twenty Pickle Pie" (with lyrics by Judy Munsen and Mick Stevens) in the 1970s. He also arranged the music for "Pinball Number Count."
Bogas has been active in the music industry since the late '60s, writing songs for the band the United States of America and arranging and playing piano on Don McLean's Tapestry album. Much of his work has been in film, television, and commercials. He scored Ralph Bakshi's animated features Fritz the Cat (with the voice of Skip Hinnant) and Heavy Traffic. He scored the live-action films Black Girl (with Leslie Uggams), He Is My Brother, and others, including the 1980 TV movie A Christmas without Snow (directed by John Korty), in which he played a featured role as the organist for the church Christmas choir.
Most of his work, however, has been for animation, and mostly for Snoopy and Garfield. He scored Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown, followed by a dozen more specials, Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don't Come Back), the TV movie The Big Stuffed Dog (following the journey of a stuffed Snoopy), and both The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show and This Is America, Charlie Brown. He began his association with Garfield on Here Comes Garfield through nine more specials and Garfield and Friends (including theme, original songs, and providing the voice of the recurring singing ants). He also scored The Romance of Betty Boop and composed music for computer and Nintendo games, including Tetris. Since 2004, he has worked primarily on documentaries.
