Notes: The principal sources for the following listings were the closing credits of each episode, with additional information taken from the series’ syndication guide. The resulting guide, however, is only accurate up to a point, because the credits are misleading. There were many stories which did not have original scores—even though the impression is given that they did. For example, the music for the final episode to be filmed (The Rolling Y) was credited solely to Oliver Nelson, even thought it was “tracked” entirely with existing cues from other eighth season entries, and featured compositions by Elliot Kaplan and Robert Prince. Similarly, although Marty Paich receives a “Music Score by” credit on every story from years six and year seven, familiarity with those episodes would suggest he contributed original cues to only a limited number of them.
