Sick #126, 3 of 4

Excerpt from Sick. the other two excerpts are here and here.
Parody of The Love Boat drawn by Jack Sparling, who was also the editor. Guest stars chosen not because they were swiped by Mort Drucker, which MAD competitors usually did for spoofs, these seem to be traced from photographs.
Goodbye Girl spoof by Dave Manak
Kojak parody

Rainy Day Sunshine Fun-Time Low-Res Cartoon Show # 6

I couldn't find a host like I can when I play old records so I thought I could do the same with old cartoons as well. The rights are even more complicated here so I've gotten around it by only embedding things that have already been posted by someone else, absolving me altogether.

I take no responsibility for anything removed by the rightholders, watermarks from previous second-generation sources, editing, cropping, or other ways links that have been broken by parties other than me. Once in a while you'll come across offensive racial stereotypes. Remember the cartoon is about the story and not about them.

Magic Whistle Radio Hour 139

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. The different sources are the reason for the volume disparity. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Every Saturday. No repeats. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows? The time's next to each song in case you don't like something or it's icky or if you don't want your kids to hear it. Don't let offense at one song cloud your impression of the curation as a whole. Past weeks here too. Just type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here's everything up to July 2017. You don't get the all playlists, though. You can right-click this if you want to save a zip file of this one (containing an mp3 of the file) for later. Here what information I was able to find:

0:00 THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES- Granny's Vittles
2:05 NEW ARRIVALS-Let's Get With It (1966)

17:09 BRUCE CHANNEL- Hey Baby (1963)
19:32 SPIKE JONES & HIS CITY SLICKERS- The Black and Blue Danube Waltz (1942)
“This was recorded on the banks of the Danube River. You can hear an airplane on manoeuvers dropping a bomb into the water and the symphony's bus waiting outside the studio to take the musicians to play a market opening. At one point you can hear the recording engineer throw a brick through the window of a recording booth, to tell Freddy Morgan he has dropped his banjo pick during his solo and has been playing on just his hangnails for the past eight bars.”

48:19 SHERRI MALINOU- Besame Mucho (1962)
   “Great things can happen by accident. When Sherri Malinou posed for the back cover of my latest book THE GIRL HUNTERS, I discovered not only a beautiful model, but one of the greatest voices I ever heard. Now, on top of recording single records and albums for Vassar Records, she'll be featured in my Mike Hammer Pictures produced by Fellane Productions.
   “Although just entering her twenties, Sherri's career goes back to age five and the vaudeville stage. She danced her way into the Bell Telephone Hour, the Ray Bolger Broadway hit ALL AMERICAN, the award-winning Off-Broadway show Riverwind and the Oldsmobile show.
   “A thoroughly trained and talented singer, Sherri Malinou's voice has an incredible range and calibre. She can inspire musicians and listeners alike. Arranger Lew Douglas sweeps her into new dimensions of song and sound destined to thrill music lovers of all ages.”
-Mickey Spillane

cartoons I don't get 9

Army/Navy Fun Parade, April 1953
Is it that she's wearing a nightie in a restaurant? Why is she wearing high heels? If someone's weaing a nightie, wouldn't they have slippers too?
Hello Buddies, circa 1965
Punch October 6, 1915
The Dude, November 1957
I guess it's that she's moved by sculptures that are abstract, but if I saw this same sculpture without the label “mother and child” I'd know that was what it was supposed to be.
Esquire, June 1934
I think it's that they're cops on the beat of some kind of Inspiration Point and are more impressed by the car than arresting the couple making out in it. (or maybe somebody's masturbating. Who knows? Who cares? The point is that whatever is going on in there is illegal in the community). I've never known cops to wear bowties though, so I was confused at first, and thought they were service station employees. I've never seen service station employees wear badges or carry guns either, and I've never seen a gun with “ears”.
Good Humor, circa 1964
Hello Buddies, June 1952
He followed her all the way to bed. That's a criminal offense. What's the statute of limitations?

Side note: Even when a woman has no shoes on, note she still has the illusion of high heels. I wonder if that's the decision of the cartoonist or the art director.
Hello Buddies, May 1955
Judge, circa 1910
How did he get to there to get the earpiece? Nugget, February 1956
Did she have a bag with her the whole time? If so, wouldn't that be a clue as to her ulterior motive?
Playboy, January 1967
This Is It #22
Is this another person or a doll?
Punch November 9, 1927
