The music of Edvard Grieg is frequently used in pop culture, as seen in the prominent use of his In The Hall of the Mountain King in the Oscar-winning film, "The Social Network." Another piece that is a favorite of animators is Morning Mood, also from his Peer Gynt Suite. The piece was a favorite of Carl Stalling who often used it for morning establishing shots in Warner Bros. cartoons and it has been featured in The Simpsons and The Family Guy, among other modern-day cartoons.
