Funny, but it helps if you know who Jerry Collona was.

This cartoon (deservedly nominated for an Oscar) features a parody of the great Jerry Collona, a radio and motion picture comedian. The title is a play on one of his signature bits ("Greetings, gate! Let's osculate!) that were his trademarks. Collona was parodied several times by the guys at Termite Terrace and was popular at the time. Little-remembered today, he really was very funny and is humorously well-done here. This cartoon should really be in-print, as it's fabulous! With worms lke this, fish don't have a chance! But I have just one question: where's Yehoodi? Recommended.
