Vivian Stanshall - Men Opening Umbrellas Ahead - 1974


By request. An unsettling album about rage and despair with little humor to be found. I doubt you will listen to this thing twice. Link in comments.

Annette - Muscle Beach Party - 1964


This was another one of Annette's Post-Disney beach movies, family-safe of course, with Frankie Avalon as always, and with comedic help from Buddy Hackett, Don Rickles, and Morey Amsterdam. Weight-lifters Bill Cunningham and Peter Lupus are on the album cover. Where is Peter's right arm? Well? Link in comments.

National Lampoon - Lemmings - 1973


This is the off-Broadway show which became the HBO film that never aired. A copy of the film is on YouTube right now but you will prefer this video which is twice the size and twice the quality. Link in comments.

Andy's Gang - 1957


This was an after-school half-hour for children featuring Andy Devine and a magical frog that was summoned by exclaiming "Plunk your magic twanger, Froggie!" The middle 15 minutes of the show was always the next installment of some tedious serialized story. Link in comments.

NATIONAL LAMPOON - White Album - 1980


A collection of 17 tracks. "Gay Alliance" with John Belushi, Chevy Chase, and Christopher Guest really worked for me. It's so dumb. Link in comments.
