Spike Jones The Legend
Starring: Spike Jones, Helen Grayco, Doodles Weaver, Billy Eckstine, Hugh Herbert, Jim Backus, Billy Reed and Liberace
Spike Jones, referred to by many as the Godfather of music video mayhem, brought his special brand of notes and nuts to 50s network television. Sneezes, belches, coughs, razberries, tuned cowbells, auto horns, and gun-shots – along with the finest musicianship – made up Spike Jones Musical Depreciation Revue. The original bad boys of music directly influenced such musical iconoclasts as Stan Freberg, Ernie Kovacs, Frank Zappa and Weird Al Yankovic. Enjoy the zany antics of Spike Jones and the City Slickers in four of their most hilarious and memorable NBC television shows in this special three DVD / one audio CD collectors set. Includes the holiday favorite, All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth, and Jones million-selling version of Cocktails for Two.
