Captain Zoom’s History
In 1976, The American Broadcasting Co. introduced the Captain Zoom personalized happy birthday recording in a soft record format. Originally developed collaboratively by Stewart Sloke (the “original” voice of Zoom), Donn Marier, Richard Klein, and Javier Cruz, its early commercial success was aided by Robert Stiller, who was a sales and marketing consultant to ABC.
When ABC decided to discontinue their Record and Tape Division in 1978, Mr. Stiller purchased the recording rights and inventory and merged the recording into American Pro, a general products company with distribution to the mass marketing sector.
The Captain Zoom personalized happy birthday recording enjoyed great success with distribution in chains such as Toys R Us, Childworld, Children’s Palace, Kiddie City, Walmart, Target, and Bradlees. Over 40 million children have enjoyed these special personalized songs. Distribution of the song was not only in the US but also in England, Ireland, South Africa and Australia.
In 1999, we further expanded our ability to reach a worldwide audience by offering the Captain Zoom personalized happy birthday song for sale on the web. The recording can be customized for any name.
