Earthworm Jim - Mortie and Eileen
After buying the Earthworm Jim DVD boxset, I stumbled on a terrific
episode, "Lounge Day's Journey into Night", where Evil the Cat is
intent on destroying the universe via these two lounge act singers,
Mortie and Eileen. They reminded me a little of Peter Allen and
Liza Minelli (perhaps intentional? :)).
Here's a sample of Mortie and Eileen's fine body of work from the episode, very enjoyable!
The writer of the cartoon show's theme song, William Anderson, has acknowledged (conceded? confessed? :)) to being the mastermind behind these compositions :)
I've provided lyrics (as best as I could hear them), in case you want to sing along!

Little hamsters, their mean one eye, yes they do
They wriggle their noses in the pale moonlight

They're cute and cuddly
But be careful, they bite!

I told my baby, things are different from now on... Capiche?
