VIDEO SUNDAY: COOKOO FOR KO-KO PUFF PIECE

For Video Sunday, we're traveling to the Land of the Rising Sun, but in two different TV dimensions... neither of which are to be found in Earth Prime-Time.

Here are two of the funniest men I've ever seen, only one of whom I've had the good fortune to meet, both performing variations on my favorite song from light opera.....


KO-KO
THE LORD HIGH EXECUTIONER


ERIC IDLE



GROUCHO MARX



Here's another version of "The Mikado" featuring my favorite song from the show......

THREE LITTLE MAIDS



Finally, I know this isn't from TV, but it's got Billy Barty so shut up! This isn't "The Mikado", but the operetta played a prominent role in the proceedings of this comic thriller. This was one of the highlights, featuring one of my faves - Billy Barty.

BEWARE OF THE DWARF! ("FOUL PLAY")



And what the hell - here's one of the all-time great comic fight scenes, also from "Foul Play", with a splash of "The Mikado" music to boot!

MR. HENNESSEY VS. DELIA DARROW



And so concludes Video Sunday.....

BCnU!
