“ ’Tain’t Funny, Mcgee”

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    On the Fibber McGee and Molly radio show, this phrase was used by Molly, played by Marian Jordan to deflate Fibber McGee, played by Jim Jordan after Fibber has told one of his stale jokes. The phrase is used by Daffy Duck on a sign in Daffy Duck and Egghead (Avery, 1938) after Egghead tries to capture Daffy with a wind-up female decoy, and in an slide put in by the Management in Holiday Highlights (Avery, 1940) after an April Fools’ Day gag has been pulled.
