The Simpsons’ Emmy-winning composer allegedly fired for transferring his work to others

Fox channel The Simpsons (The Simpsons) claimed that the animated series, Alf Clausen, who composed his music for 27 years, was fired because he secretly transferred his work to his son.


Clausen, 79, who was released in 2017, accused the Fox channel last summer of firing him for his “injury and age”.


According to the court documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the producers said that Clausen was fired for informal transfer to others, including his son Scott.


In the statement submitted by producer Richard Sakai to the court, it was stated that the tension that emerged between Clausen and Fox in 2016 was due to the hip-hop themed Simpsons section called ‘The Great Phatsby’.


Sakai explained that his producer friend James L Brooks is questioning whether Clausen is the right person to make rap music and questioning his work in general.


Sakai said, “At that time, I learned that Clausen handed over some of his composition works for the Simpsons to others, including his son Scott Clausen. I thought this unauthorized transfer was unacceptable. I called Al Jean, the scriptwriter for the series, and told him that he had transferred his compositions. He said he was surprised and also uncomfortable. ”


Sakai stated that as a result they decided to improve the music of the series with someone else.



Working for the Simpsons series for 27 years, Clausen composed 560 episodes, earning two of the Emmy awards for which he was nominated 21 times.
