Tizzie Fish

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 24, 2004

    A play on the character of Tizzie Lish -- some sources call the character Lizzie Tish -- played by Bill Comstock on Al Pearce and His Gang, a radio show of the 1930s. Tizzie would open up with a cheery “Hello, Folksies!” and proceed to give recipes that were ridiculous, always waiting to allow the listener to get a pencil, so one could write the recipe down. The character is spoofed delightfully in The Woods Are Full of Cuckoos (Tashlin, 1937).
