Biography

Sheldon Allman (b. 8 June 1924, Chicago, Illinois - d. 22 January 2002, Culver City, California) was a American-born Canadian raised actor, singer, and songwriter.
He began his singing career with the Royal National Guard during his WWII service with the RCAF. Relocating to Los Angeles, he appeared many movies and made appearances in numerous TV series during the 1960s and 1970s. He was the singing voice for TV’s Mister Ed, for which he also wrote and recorded “The Pretty Little Filly with the Ponytail” and “The Empty Feedbag Blues”. He was the lyricist for the theme song to George of the Jungle (“George, George, George of the Jungle, friend to you and me! Watch out for that tree!!”). Additionally, Allman worked with Stan Worth, co-writer of the “George of the Jungle” theme, to create music for a number of game shows from Stefan Hatos-Monty Hall Productions, including the 1970’s versions of Let’s Make a Deal, Masquerade Party and It Pays to be Ignorant.

He died at the age of 77 and was survived by his wife of many years, Lorraine Allman.
