I must be thinking of a different Shagg.I thought it was an animated mass of fuzzy fabric intent on covering 1970s rec-rooms. Powers:Manipulating Cosmo-Gamma Static Shock.

LOL! Yeah, it's easy to get those two mixed up. However, the rec-room Shagg is most often seen with his companion monsters "Wood Paneling" and "Orange Formica Countertops".

Then there's the Shaggs, the 1960s novelty act whose Philosophy of the World album was cited by Frank Zappa as his third favorite LP of all time. I've heard the album, and all I can say is that it makes me question Zappa's claim not to have used drugs.

Mark Engblom

Maybe Zappa used Cosmo-Gamma Electro-Magnetic waves instead.

That might also explain him naming his kids "Dweezil", "Moon Unit", "Ahmed Emuukha", and "Diva Muffin".

I kid you not.


Great example of the unintentional innuendo of ye olden days of comic books. Reminds me of the new Wonder Woman solicit I saw today. Return of the 'Khunds', eh? Don't try saying that when you're drunk.

LOL! Exactly! Hey, I really like your site. I'm surprised I haven't run across it before. I'll be sure to link to it!
