The Musical Innertube 38 - Go See Cal!


When used car salesmen pass away, it's usually no big deal.  But Cal Worthington was a HUGE deal to anybody who grew up watching TV in Southern California in the 60s and 70s.  I'll bet Cal is riding his tiger Spot through the Pearly Gates right now, ready to sell God a Ford.

The Musical Innertube 30 - The Dawn of Darkwing!


Too bad this description can't be a comic book cover, because then I could spread a banner headline across the top: "SENSATIONAL ORIGIN ISSUE!"  And in a word balloon coming out of Darkwing Duck's mouth, I could have this: "'Funny or Die?'  They're dead to me now!"  Feel free to create your own cover in your own mind.

The Musical Innertube Flatters Roger Ebert


More than anyone else, Roger Ebert made me want to expand my cinematic horizons and look for new and different films. Which almost makes me ashamed to present this parody of his first TV movie review show that we did on the Musical Innertube lo, these many years ago. Almost.
