Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Public Enemy Number 1--Groucho Marx???

Stan Freberg here. Everybody loved Groucho Marx--everybody, that is, except the late J. Edgar Hoover...say WHAT? Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. Yep, new evidence shows that Groucho Marx ended up on the F.B.I.'s list of suspected "pinkos" during the McCarthy era. Ridiculous! Look at those eyebrows wagging up and down. Ever see a serious Commie ogle a woman like Groucho?

He was eventually cleared, but they had agents tail him for years. I wonder if the F.B.I. guy following Groucho also walked in that famous crouch.

The first time I met Groucho, I said, "Groucho, I love everything you've ever done." He wiggled his eyebrows at me and said, "Coming from you, that's high praise indeed!" After that, we became good friends, but I never heard anyone say Groucho had Communist leanings.

Hoover must've confused Groucho Marx with Karl Marx. Eh, Karl never had a mustache like that.
