What a bizarre song and I come from the land of bizarre animals such as the kangaroo and platypus.
  Sat. 8/13/16 1:19pm Brez:

"Kangaroo" -- A strong contestant for the most blessedly idiotic song Rex ever played!

'Back to the Zoo, Kangaroo'! Insanely great. Eddie Palace forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/13/16 1:27pm Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

You've got to give him credit: "kangaroo" rhymes with "zoo".

Sounds like Tex & Edna Boyle .. Come and see the 2-legged cat!

Guy Kibbee was in the HORN BLOWS AT MIDNIGHT, which is the running gag Jack Benny spoil
  Sat. 8/13/16 1:36pm Mister-e:

The Horn Blows at Midnight (1945) is a comedy fantasy film directed by Raoul Walsh and starring Jack Benny.

Its biggest claim to fame, apart from its star, is its failure at the box office.

The film had the misfortune to be released only eight days after the death of U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

This may have contributed to its poor reception, although the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel, also dealing with the afterlife, opened on Broadway at roughly the same time and became a hit.

Benny often exploited its failure for laughs in his popular radio and television comedy series The Jack Benny Program.
