Another star from the H-B Dreck machine, Magilla Gorilla is aptly summed up by wikipedia, thus: “Magilla Gorilla is a gorilla who spends his time languishing in the front display window of Melvin Peebles' pet shop, eating bananas and being a drain on the businessman's finances.” His powers of speech and evident sentience kept Mr. Peebles from selling the beast for medical experimentation, yet it never struck anyone that he were engaged in slave trading.

The word “Magilla” is Yiddish, of course - am interminable story, the whole magilla he tells me. This might be the penultimate example of Yiddish in a comedy theme song.

How I hate this stuff.

(The other example of Yiddish in a comedy theme song being, of course - well, c’mon. That's easy.)
