Sometimes I wonder if that song is about cookies at all.
Hmmmm. My wife's from Garfield but doesn't seem to remember the Belmont Ballroom. I do remember the CHOO CHOO CLUB but never went.
Paul Frees, one of the All-Time giants. In addition to the enormous catalog of vocal characters, he does appear in some very notable films, like the original 1950's "The Thing" as one of the scientists at the North Pole lab, and in the original "War of the Worlds" as a reporter. In the earliest Pilsbury "Pop 'n' Fresh" commercials he actually sings an extended song/jingle, and does a very nice job. He was also often called on to do a kind of erzatz "Orson Welles" heavy narrative voice, like when they didn't want to pay the actual Welles (like at the very end of Beneath the Planet of the Apes.")
thanks, P-90... Hanna-Barbera, better yet an enterprising reissue label, should release Bedrock Twitch by Rock Roll (voiced by Otis the Drunk) b/w Eep Op Ork Ah-Ah by Jet Screamer (voiced by Ernest T. Bass)... that pair is an odd bit of cartoon trivia synchronicity...
Also gotta mention Frees's Disney work, most notably his creation of the voice of Professor Ludwig von Drake. And he dubbed all of Tony Curtis's lines in "Some Like it Hot" when the character is in drag and speaking in a falsetto "female" voice.
I am an author working on a book about 1960-62 label Candix Records and was hoping I could get details of Larry Bright's Diplomacy single which was played on air July 16. I need label,writers etc. Any HELP would be greatly appreciated.
