Well I will shiver insane

[crowd cheering]

[children singing]


When I was about five

we got a TV,

and I'd watch "Howdy Doody."

Buffalo Bob was basically like

uh, Timothy Leary for little kids on TV.

How do you feel long about the middle

of the morning, Clarabell?

Not so good, little dragged down, huh?

Well, then, Clarabell

what you should have is Ovaltine!

(Iggy) And I remember the

sound of the peanut gallery.




They had, uh, characters

like Clarabell the Clown, you know

and Clarabell the Clown

might do anything.

You didn't know what he was gonna do

and that just fascinated me.

But the big-big one,

it was "Soupy Sales."

[instrumental music]

It was called

"Lunchtime With Soupy."

He encouraged kids to write to him

but he said, "Always

when you write the letter

please, twenty-five words or less."

...where'd you learn

to sing like that?

At my speech class.

- At your sh.. At your...

- That's right, Bobby.

At your spee..

Who is your teacher?


And that always stuck with me.

And when I wanted to start

writing songs for our group

I thought, "This is the way to go

"try to make it

twenty-five words

different words or less."

I didn't feel like I was Bob Dylan


you know?

And, uh, I thought

"Keep it really short,

and none of it will be

the wrong thing."

But no fun

My babe

No fun

[instrumental music]

(Iggy) Yeah, heh, I saw the

movie with my parents.

And it felt great

that we had the same trailer.

Inside, most of the lighting fixtures

and part of the furnishings

were built-in.

I had a little bedroom.

It was maybe, four or five feet wide

by about nine feet long.

There's room for a little palette

and a little mini desk.

So, the only place
