Legendary voice actor and comedy-advertising pioneer Stan Freberg departed last week at 88. In honor of this inside-the-system iconoclast…

Monster-of-the-Week: …this week let’s acknowledge Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent—the original puppet version from Time for Beany, the late ‘40s/early ‘50s TV fave, performed and voiced by Freberg.

Cecil was one of the earlier monsters of my experience; I had a stuffed Cecil when I was very small, although he was based on the later cartoon version, Beany and Cecil. Anyway, here are Cecil and Harry Truman performing “Ragg Mopp."
