YouTube Video: Roly Poly Fish Heads

I found the one song that gave me bad nightmares. Bad enough that I couldn't eat anything that looked like a fish for a long time. One of the most disturbing videos I've ever seen. I could've posted it in the media section but I think it's too disturbing for that forum. O_O

I was lead to believe that this song was by They Might Be Giants but it turns out it wasn't! It was partly by the one and only Bill Mumy! Wow!

why would you even think TMBG had something to do with this?

this must be a few decades old by now. mmmmm, fish.

Truth be told, I really couldn't pay much attention to it. For whatever reason, I just couldn't even get up the slight interest to find out where they were going with it.

I remember Homer singing this in one of the Treehouse of Horror episodes (“The Thing and I” ). It's nice to know where it actually comes from.

I used to love this song when I was little, but I never saw the video until I looked it up just now. Pretty creepy, but funny XD

I have absolutely no idea how it got onto my mom's cd's ages ago, but I had that thing perfectly memorized when I was little.

Seeing the video, however…I don't know what to think, haha. It's bizarre, but…?? Weird. I'm seriously at a loss.

Zad, that means your mother was a Dr. Demento fan. It was only offered on CD as part of one of the Dr. Demento boxed sets.

It made the top 10 most demented songs of all time.

I saw this back in 1979 on an early music video show that came on after SNL and Second City TV. Maybe you guys should check out the Devo videos of the same vintage.

Ahmygod, yes, silly me. She was a huge Dr. Demento fan. We listened to his stuff ALL the time.

Duh. I know that now! Before I ever saw that video I found the song on Frostwire when I search for TMBG stuff and it even had the artist tag They Might be Giants so I believed it. Now I know different. You learn something every day.
