Stan Freberg, R.I.P.

Comedic genius Stan Freberg died of pneumonia today. He was 88.

Freberg was known for his satires of The Lawrence Welk Show, Dragnet, Banana Boat  not to mention his take on the history of The United States of America (“Life, liberty and purfuit of happineff.”)

He also enjoyed a successful career in advertising as with this Geno’s Pizza commercial featuring The Lone Ranger & Tonto.

In the early ’80’s, Freberg did a TV special satirizing the federal debt featuring author Ray Bradbury and M*A*S*H star David Ogden Stiers. Take a look. It’ll make you both laugh and cry.
