Welcome to Mark’s Musical May Mondays! - MA-115 – Crazy, Man!




            Every Monday this month we’ll have a new musical compilation for your delectation ... or in this week’s instance, for your delerium.

Crazy, Man!

            Some are familiar to those of us with a humorous musical bent (“bent” – see what I did there?), although I hope many of the tunes are as new and delightful to you as they were to me upon first discovering them.



            Our cover art:
·         The guy on the left is, of course, a fine fellow who’s convinced he’s Napoleon.  The original art came from here.

·         The center guy is Psycho Weasel, one of the Toon Patrol from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  In turn, the weasels of the Toon Patrol were based on the sneaky weasel characters of Disney’s 1949 Wind in the Willows animated feature.

·         Our right-hand man is, of course, the Joker, Batman’s nemesis.  The image comes from a 1966 Topps set, which was launched to cash in on the popularity of the ABC-TV show.


And the key to the madhouse is here.

            Well, that’s all for now, folks!  Come back next Monday!
