Fozzie and his worn-out Spike Jones records.

Spike Jones (1911-1965) was an American bandleader, drummer and comedian. He was most well known for his novelty songs, which usually consisted of a current popular song performed in a non-humorous way, but then the band would play it again, and insert things like gunshots, screams, and other random sound effects into the music. He was also well known for his World War II song "Der Fuehrer's Face", which made fun of Adolf Hitler. He was a major influence on Stan Freberg and "Weird Al" Yankovic.
