Looney Tunes


No, not those, though as you can see, you're meant to think of them. I am almost positive the name was what led me to ask for this album on 8-track tape at a Stuckey's during a family road trip many years ago. I didn't really get what I was expecting if that's the case.

What I did get was a crash course in the concept of novelty songs. I mean, just take a look at that track list. Some pretty big records on there, and I likely experienced all of them at the same time. All this through the magic of 8-track! I suspect this led to my long-term fascination with both oddball music and K-tel.

Have a commercial!

I had this album too! I was also confused by the name, but I grew to like the songs a lot and listened to Dr. Demento because of them.
