D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Huckleberry Sounds

 

One of the joys of writing this blog is sharing incredibly great, obscure records with all you comics fans. The other is forcing you to listen to really rotten records. I mean, truly bad, awful songs. Utter garbage.

This Tuesday, I’m pleased to be able to present both! And both are about Huckleberry Hound, the animated Andy Griffith, who had a surprising number of records. (So did Andy Griffith, but that’s a subject for another blog.)

 

 

 

Huckleberry Hound, or “Huck” as we call him here at I.T.C.H. HQ, was famous for singing “Clementine” at the drop of a hat – and he dropped his own hat! But here we have something far worse, and much better!

 

 

 

 

First listen to the Huckleberry Hound TV show theme song, which brings back many fond memories. Only to have those memories TRASHED by some imposter voice artists. I guess they couldn’t get Daws Butler and Don Messick for this travesty, so they just used whoever was standing closest to the microphone at the time. Possibly the mailman. Or the guy who delivers coffee. Either way, I hope he never worked again after this.

Then, to redeem ourselves and hopefully not lose any of our loyal listeners and readers, I’d like you to hear a rockin’ little tune called “Huckleberry Hound.” I don’t know where this came from but it’s not half bad! Or at least, it seems good in comparison with the other record. Ugh. Don’t remind me.

Listen to them both and see if you agree.

Click the link below and enjoy.

    DJ David -

    There was a great Huck album (I’m thinking 1964?) with the cartoon stars presenting a history of US Presidential campaign songs. Have you seen it? I’d love to hear it again.

    Hmm, I don’t know that one but I’ll put it on my wish list. Who knows what might turn up?

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
