  • George Newall enrolled at Florida State University in 1955. He studied composition with John Boda, winning FloridaComposers League awards in 1958, 1959, and 1960. While Co-Creative Director of McCaffrey & McCall, Newall "invented" HaiKarate, an off-the-wall spoof of cliché after shave lotion advertising. Hai Karate became the most successful men's toiletry introduction of the sixties. In 1970, Newall became the catalyst in the creation of ABC's SchoolhouseRock. The McCaffrey & McCall President, David McCall, asked him to helpdevelop the concept of setting rote learning to rock music. Newall foundBob Dorough, a composer of uniquely eccentric jazz tunes and lyrics andintroduced him to McCall and Newall's creative partner, Art director cartoonistTom Yohe. Later that year, the group took their educational ideato Disney CEO Michael Eisner, then Director of Children's Programming atthe ABC Television Network. Eisner immediately bought the idea and in1972, 3-minute Schoolhouse Rock! segments starting running on ABC seventimes each weekend. In 1978, Newall left McCaffrey & McCall with his Co-Creative Director,Tom Yohe, to start Newall & Yohe, Inc., intent on producing animatededucational programs for commercial television. In addition to winning fourEmmys for Schoolhouse Rock!, Newall & Yohe also won an Emmy forDrawing Power, a Saturday morning educational series they created forNBC. Newall & Yohe won numerous other awards for its work, includingEmmy nominations for its Nutrition Spots for ABC, The Metric Marvelsfor NBC, "When You Turn Off Your Set, Turn On a Book" for NBC, and anAction for Children's Television Act Award for (in the words of thecitation): "Cartoons with a Conscience," animated segments in "DrawingPower," which prove that cartoons can be nonracist, nonsexist,informative... and funny."
