D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: No matter how you spell it…

 

To me, the best thing about Mr. Mxyzptlk isn’t that he’s a colorful, magical imp who can do anything until he is tricked by Superman into saying his name backwards and returned to the fifth dimension. The best thing is that his name used to be Mr. Mxyztplk before he changed it. (Too Jewish?) You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This makes my head hurt.

 

Believe it or not, there is a song about Mr. Mxyzptlk. And it’s a swinging little tune! I understand if you spin it backwards it makes your record sound like “Up, Up And Away” by the Fifth Dimension. What a wacky world.

  1. Happenstace Says:

    I remember one of the older Superman cartoons absolutely surrendering on the pronunciation of the imp’s name; Supes just shouted, “Oh no! It’s Mixelplick!!”

    Although he’s never really found firm footing in the grimmer, gritter “modern” era, even voiced by Gilbert Gottfried, you have to admire the little bugger’s tenacity; never have so many stories been devoted to such an ill-matched, not-really-a-supervillain* foe.

    *Well, except for that one story that killed off 95% of the Superman Family. You know the one.

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