Jonathan Winters
Jonathan Harshman Winters III
Nov 11 1925 - Apr 11 2013 age 87

I got this for the Saint Saens "Carnival of the Animals". It was out of print for a time, but I heard it on KXPR. Ogden Nash wrote little poetical vignettes for it. Jonathan Winters uses an Indian accent for one of the episodes - do Indians find this offensive? I doubt it. It's a smash trio, of Saint Saens (all the pictures show an agreeable man with laugh lines on the outside of his eyes), Ogden Nash (to Dorothy Parker's "men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses", he replied "A girl who is bespectacled, she may not get her nectacled, but safety pins and bassinets, await the girl who fassinets"), and Jonathan Winters, who needs no introduction. Too bad there are no audio samples on Amazon, because the beginning of the tracks are where Winters does his bit.Prokofiev: Peter And The Wolf, Op. 67 (A Musical Tale For Children)
