He's a parody of someone
I only just figured this out today. Up until then, I knew I had heard the name Brandeis before, but I couldn't lay a finger on it. Then it hit me. When he was first offered a job at the laundromat, he says, "I had hoped for a position on the Supreme Court, but a job is a job". It's no coincidence that he wanted a job like that, because his name is based on a former court justice, Louis Brandeis, who makes an appearance in the musical "Annie". Plus, isn't it interesting that immediately following the main body of the episode, who should appear but our current supreme court justice, Sonia Sotomayor? They clearly had their mind on the Supreme Court while developing that episode. Garrettk41 (talk) 05:40, February 2, 2013 (UTC)
The voice of Brandeis in this clip sounds slightly deeper and scratchier than the voice heard in the song. In the latter clip, it's evidently John Tartaglia's voice, but I'm under the impression that Brandeis is actually being performed by another puppeteer (Jim Martin?) -- Jon (talk) 16:38, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
- It sounds like John to me in both clips; the end of the first sounds very Tingo-ish in delivery, just with a lower voice. The singing voice is unmistakably John. - Oscarfan (talk) 16:49, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
