[[caption-width:287:My Son, The Media Figure.]]Although probably best known to modern audiences as the singer of "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah (A Letter From Camp Granada)", Allan Sherman was a prodigious talent who started working in the entertainment industry in the late 1940s and kept going strong until his death from emphysema in 1973.

In the course of his career, Sherman turned his hand to scriptwriting, creating, producing and even acting (including a turn as the voice of the Cat in the Hat in the 1971 TV adaptation of the famous Creator/DrSeuss book).

With [[Film/{{Fame}} Albert Hague]] he cowrote the 1969 Broadway musical ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fig_Leaves_Are_Falling The Fig Leaves Are Falling]],'' which is notable for two things: the Broadway debut of DavidCassidy (later of ''ThePartridgeFamily''), and closing after only four performances. He hosted ''TheTonightShow'' on several occasions, including the night Creator/BillCosby made his first appearance on the show; he would later be credited as co-producer on Cosby's first three albums for Creator/WarnerBrosRecords.

He was also the author of several books, including the infamous comic novel ''The Rape of the A*P*E (American Puritan Ethic).'' He made his greatest impact on TV as creator of ''IveGotASecret'' and as the producer of ''TheJackieGleasonShow,'' but it was his numerous albums of [[SongParody song parodies]] (starting with ''My Son, The Folk Singer'' in 1963) that made him a household name in the 1960s.

A fair selection of his work can be found with [[http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=allan+sherman&search_type=&aq=f a simple YouTube search]].
