Mr. Microphone

Hey good lookin’, we’ll be back to pick you up later! — Some guy

[whistle] He’s in for some lovin’. — Homer, “Radio Bart”

I can’t believe they invented it! Mr. Microphone: a wireless microphone that dialed into your FM radio for merriment galore. Keep in mind that this was the 70s, and this website didn’t exist yet — people had to pass the time somehow.

While The Simpsons properly parodied the catcalling Roger Daltrey type, they sadly left any riffs of this guy on the cutting room floor.

On a related note, cinephiles may also recall that the Toy Story movies included a character named “Mr. Mike” who fulfilled the toys’ broadcasting needs.
