Camp Granada

Marge, is Lisa at Camp Granada? — Homer, “Marge Be Not Proud”

“Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh (A Letter From Camp)” is a novelty song penned by parodist Allan Sherman in the 60s that remains the man’s best-known work. We’ll just call it “Camp Granada”, though.

“Camp Granada” was a hit for Sherman, and it led to a spin-off book, a spin-off musical revue*, and even a spin-off board game.

Sherman had a few other minor hits in the 60s, but he was never able to write another tune that matched the popularity of “Camp Granada”. He died in 1973, and was later given a tip of the hat by “Weird Al” Yankovic on his debut album (check the foot of the bed).

* I don’t know what this is.
