Burns was born May 18, 1935 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. He was born and raised Jewish. He attended the University of Oregon between 1953 and 1957.
He is a former writer for The Bullwinkle Show. Burns also produced the television shows Cutters (1993), The Duck Factory (1984), and co-wrote the unaired version of the 1965 pilot episode of The Smothers Brothers Show. Before breaking into television and film, Burns started in animation, working for Jay Ward and collaborating and animating The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and George of the Jungle. Burns also created the Cap'n Crunch character for Quaker Oats.
After his stint writing for Jay Ward, Burns formed a partnership with Chris Hayward.

After Room 222, television executive Grant Tinker hired Brooks and Burns to develop a television series for CBS starring Mary Tyler Moore.
