2k3 music in SNL sketch?

https://youtu.be/0BEBO5BdAM8

So I was watching some SNL sketches on YouTube when I found this Avatar sketch. I may be wrong but isn't the music they play at one part (1:00-1:24) the music from the 2K3 Series?

What the hell? I definitely recognize that cue. If it's not borrowed or whatever, it's a total rip-off.

That's definitely music from the 4Kids series, no doubt about it. Come to think of it, many cartoons actually use the same musical cues from time to time. I believe studios source those cues from companies that provide music for professional television productions, kind of like royalty free music. I'm surprised that it's not an original cue for the 4Kids series though. Maybe the composer sold it, who knows?

The reason you'll see like a dozen different composers attached to the 4Kids series is because what I suspect happens is that, like The-Shredder said, a composer will build up a large library of tunes which companies can cheaply license out for use. A more contemporary example might be Teen Titans Go, which doesn't have a "main" composer afaik and just takes whatever they want from two or three libraries.

It likely was not an original cue for the show because then 4Kids would have a stake in its use, or rather, I suppose those rights rest with Nick now. A composer very rarely owns the music he writes for picture.

But yeah, definitely the same cue. Cool!

I heard it in, I think a PRogressive ad a while back too.

I'm amazed the soundtrack hasn't 'leaked' yet.

I don't know what you mean by this. There isn't a single "soundtrack" for the show, as it comes from all sorts of different places. Some cues are custom, others are from separate libraries. If you knew what to look for and where to look you could probably find some music tracks from the 2k3 series streaming on some production music website.

I know I heard another 2k3 track on a commercial a couple of years back. Can't seem to remember.

Also, didn't someone find a lot of the 2k3 music and post it somewhere on the forums? I swear I remember seeing that on here before a little while back.
