From the 2006 PBS Legends of Jazz series -- specifically, the episode entitled "The Golden Horns" -- please enjoy Clark Terry and his spirited ode to utter incoherence, the incomparable "Mumbles."
That's great, obviously, but nowhere near as great as a certain hand puppet...
...lip-synching it on a kids TV show of yore.
You know, there are days when I think that Pookie the Lion is my favorite fictional character of all time.
This is one of those days, obviously.
I should add that those of you in the New York City and Los Angeles areas can see more of Pookie, Thursday night's at 8:30pm and five days a week(!) during the afternoon, on basic cable's Jewish Life TV channel. Those of you elsewhere should consult your local listings.
