Edward Gorey did the animation at the beginning of the long-lived PBS series, Mystery, featuring mostly British mystery series' such as "The Inspector Lynley Mysteries" (American aurthor, British production), Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple," "Sherlock Holmes" with the late Jeremy Brett, "Rumpole of the Bailey," etc. The series used to be hosted by that most delicious of all British actresses, Diana Rigg.

I'm not sure if he also wrote the accompanying music, but it was certainly inspired by his work. It's called "The Gorey Tango."
