Ken in Tucson:
Sometimes I wonder if that song is about cookies at all.

Hmmmm. My wife's from Garfield but doesn't seem to remember the Belmont Ballroom. I do remember the CHOO CHOO CLUB but never went.

Paul Frees, one of the All-Time giants. In addition to the enormous catalog of vocal characters, he does appear in some very notable films, like the original 1950's "The Thing" as one of the scientists at the North Pole lab, and in the original "War of the Worlds" as a reporter. In the earliest Pilsbury "Pop 'n' Fresh" commercials he actually sings an extended song/jingle, and does a very nice job. He was also often called on to do a kind of erzatz "Orson Welles" heavy narrative voice, like when they didn't want to pay the actual Welles (like at the very end of Beneath the Planet of the Apes.")

I see no record credits for Frees at Wikipedia, so I'd like to think a Holy Grail in the form of a 45RPM exists...

Paul Frees is prepared to know what time it is in no fewer than 5 cities simultaneously.

@Lemmy, he may have no solo record credits, but Frees appears on tons of comedy records, Stan Freeberg's stuff, Hanna-Barbera children's records, etc etc

"...all radio is dead", that was Frees in War of The Worlds

thanks, P-90... Hanna-Barbera, better yet an enterprising reissue label, should release Bedrock Twitch by Rock Roll (voiced by Otis the Drunk) b/w Eep Op Ork Ah-Ah by Jet Screamer (voiced by Ernest T. Bass)... that pair is an odd bit of cartoon trivia synchronicity...

Also gotta mention Frees's Disney work, most notably his creation of the voice of Professor Ludwig von Drake. And he dubbed all of Tony Curtis's lines in "Some Like it Hot" when the character is in drag and speaking in a falsetto "female" voice.
