DINGDINGDINGDING, that's the one, Signor. Breezy Brisbane. Thank you. That episode is the only one he really had the lead in, isn't it?
EDIT: ( one month later ) I've since looked at this on YouTube, and noticed that Breezy, though very convincing, does not shed real tears as he recites. To cry with tears on command is an exceedingly difficult technical acting trick mastered by very few, Judy Garland and, apparently, Farina among those who could do it. Breezy ( or Hoppy, or Jumpy, or Spazzy, sorry I couldn't remember his name ) does a very good acting job here, lacking nothing but the legitimately teary eye. As you may remember, I mistakenly remembered him crying buckets.
