You composed the score to My Favorite Martian, while Danny Elfman provided the theme.
[Q] How was it working on a movie that had a television theme to deal with in addition to a theme by another composer?
[A] Not a problem really. Danny had composed a theme for Uncle Martin and I wrote the rest. I also extrapolated and twisted Danny's theme to fit the film. It was another very fun collaboration with director Donald Petrie, who is very crazy and enthusiastic. The original theme was only stated in a few key spots in the film - and I love the original so it was a joy to do.
