Sorry Elton.

Le Happe Le Valentines Le Daye + Happy 100th Post

Seeing as it's Valentines Day here is a bit of Pepe Le Pew for all you lovers out there. This is a good Pepe episode because:
a) the character designs of all the passers by at the start are great.
b) it's a wild cat that get's painted as a skunk and chased by Pepe, rather than the usual timid girl cat.
c) the faux-French signs are probably the best thing in it. The 'Keepe Le Out' sign is pretty great but the best 'French' keep off the grass sign has to be the one that says 'No Pate De Fois Grass'. Outstanding!

Also, as a side note, this is my 100th post on Life On Goon Island! Thanks to everyone out there who's been reading and watching. Looking forward to the next 100.
Peace y'all.

The Muppet Workshop meets Bruce Springsteen : when awesome things get more awesome

If there are two things I like it's all singing, all dancing puppets made of felt, foam and ping pong balls, and songs about being a blue collar working man living in new Jersey. Now these things don't sound like they're gonna just come together, but by golly when they do it's awesome. Yes, Bruce Springsteen being done by the Muppets! Like putting bacon on a cheeseburger, this is one beautiful combo!

Cab Calloway: singer, band leader, ghost walrus.

If you are like me then you will know Mr Cab Calloway, jazz/scat singer, bandleader and super smooth dancer, for his hit song Minnie The Moocher, and if you are like me you will have heard it for the first time in the Blues Brothers movie. It is what I would call a big tune.

The Blues Brothers is a wonderfully over the top movie and a joy to watch, but Cab had performed this song decades earlier alongside a couple of other pop culture icons that makes the Blues Brothers movie look pretty darn normal. I'm talking about Cab Calloway in the Betty Boop cartoon "Minnie The Moocher". which came out in 1932. I've started delving into Betty Boop cartoons recently and like a lot of these early black and white 'toons, they are more than a little bizzare. I won't explain it too much but all you need to know is that Cab Calloway appears in it as a singing ghost walrus. This is some freaky stuff but fantastic.

So there you go, Cab as a singing ghost walrus. Crazy. Next thing you'll be saying he was in Sesame Street... oh wait, he totally was! AMAZING!

What a guy!
