Ichabod And Me (sitcom, starring Robert Sterling)

    (CBS Primetime, 1961 - 1962)

    [the basic situation explored in this situation comedy was that of 
     a reporter who moves from the "Big Apple" (New York) to a small
     New England town in "Ichabod Crane country", whose leading 
     citizen is a character named Ichabod Adams.]

Theme 1: "The Girl I Left Behind Me"

    [above is title as listed in the BMI Database crediting
     Gilbert (an ASCAP composer), and an unnamed ASCAP publisher.
     The listing showing up on the ASCAP cue sheets may have been
     an attempt to share royalties by Gilbert, who was the Four Star 
     music director, or he may have actually written an arrangement
     of it for a season of the series.
     This tune is a Traditional Irish folk song written circa 1770, now
     in the Public Domain.]
