Dorough believed the songs resonated with so many because, "even though they were in a "rock" or "pop" bag, my jazz sensibilities and the fine musicians I used for the audio recordings made the songs seem unusual to the Saturday morning cartoon listener", he told CNN in 2013.

Born in Arkansas, Dorough grew up in Texas. Following his service, Dorough earned a music degree from the University of North Texas.

He left school in 1952, just as New York's bebop scene was flourishing, and soon gained a reputation as an arranger, conductor and player. Miles Davis then invited Dorough to record with him after hearing the album, asking him to provide lyrics and vocals for a Christmas LP.

Bob Dorough, the jazzman who created the clever and enduring Schoolhouse Rock toons that taught grammar, math, science, and citizenship to a generation of TV-watching kids, has died. That concept became the song "Three Is a Magic Number" and the project would become the Grammy-nominated Multiplication Rock.

"Schoolhouse Rock" songs premiered in 1973 and ran on ABC from 12 years.

The series premiered in early 1973, with all 11 segments devoted to multiplication and Dorough writing every song, as well as singing on a lot of them.
