Need help finding an episode (Curly is hiding inside a radio)
« on: December 14, 2004, 03:35:32 PM »
What is the episode where Curly is hiding inside the radio and pretends to be the broadcaster and says "They ain't in here!"? I can't find the episode name.

Dutiful But Dumb
Now you ask me if I believe a man can become a wolf. Well, if you mean can he take on the physical characteristics of an animal, no, it's fantastic. However, I do believe that most anything can happen to a man in his own mind.

That entire scene where Curley is hiding in the radio still makes me laugh out loud. Before Curley does any talking, that Vulgarian officer is trying to get a report on the radio & Curley yanks this enormous wind instrument (I don't know what it is, but the dubbed music sounds like a harmonica) out of his jacket & begins playing. A short time later, he is suddenly wearing a cymbal attached to a headband. And then, he manages to come up with 2 xylophone mallets. And I love it when he stops playing for a second, but the music continues anyway.

Viva Vulgaria!

Then you have the army officer trying to change the radio dial... "I don't understand, sir, it's on every channel!"

The instrument is called a Pan Flute, but it usually doesn't sound like a harmonica. Also, you wouldn't blow into it like Curly does, but across the ends of it to make the flute sounds. Ask Zamfir for further information.
The tacks won't come out! Well, they went in ... maybe they're income tacks.

In the Andes Mountains region of Perú, Bolivia and Chile where they are played, the instrument is known as a zampoña. They come in various sizes and pitches and are a staple of "música andina" or Andean music. Check out a group named Los Jaivas, they have 2 albums out on US labels, they combine traditional Andean music with 70's rock and a touch of funk.  Simon and Garfunkel scored a major pop hit in the 1970's with their rendition of the Andean standard, "El Condor Pasa"

The routine of performing inside a TV was repeated in I Love Lucy when Lucy attempting to convince Ricky she would be good on the TV show he was hosting decided to put on a show for Ricky and Fred from inside the old-time big 1950's furniture TV.  She looked like a hotel bellhop or Western Union delivery person...  It was a riot!

"que cosa tiene esta mujer",   She got some splainin' to do,

There's also an MGM Tex Avery cartoon from the 50's that's based on the same premise, but it's been so long since I've seen it that I've forgotten the title. A convict is digging a tunnel to escape from prison, but he comes up right under the TV in the Warden's living room! So, he's forced to impersonate all the characters that the Warden thinks he's watching. It's a hilarious cartoon (most of Avery's are), and I wish I could find it somewhere. I've got three DVD's of Avery cartoons, but it's not on any of them.

Isn't that the "Vitameatavegimin" episode? She dropped the cigarrete pack out of the picture tube opening.

Yes, Dutiful But Dumb was well known for the oyster scene as well as the radio scene. I know EXACTLY which Tex Avery episdoe you are referring to, and it was one of my favs!
