Morgus the Magnificent was an eccentric New Orleans late night television sci-fi and horror movie host from the late 1950's through the 1980's. He had the leading role in one movie called "The Wacky World of Doctor Morgus". This is one of the most maddeningly terrible and insanely untintelligible films of all time. If you're feeling really brave, you should check it out. Anyway, there is a song by blues man and New Orleans R&B master Dr. John called "Morgus the Magnificent" that is one of my favorites. It has a cooly innocent, campy appeal to it that never grows old. Here it is for your enjoyment.
