    Just wanted to see if there were any fans of "Little Jerry and the Monotones".

    The best band on SS, they rock! I have a e-group on Yahoo if anyone would like to join and discuss, or... discuss here! Either way it's cool man, real cool.

    In case you don't remember Little Jerry, or in today's case, before your time... Little Jerry is a hippie type character, surrounded by three other hippies (a.k.a. Monotones) and usually sang.

    Among their multitude of groovy tunes it seems that "Telephone Rock" is probably the best and most well known, but they did other songs usually having to do with feelings... "Sad", "Proud" and "Mad!" as well as "Danger", "Four" and others...

    Personally my favorite is "Mad!" (hense my nick)... what a rocking tune... "When someone socks me in the eye, and they doen't even tell me why, That makes me MAD!" Ahh.... yesteryears... will they ever return?

    Anyway, I hope I jogged someone's memory or perhaps sparked a new interest in the best band hands down on SS.

    I remember those guys too!!!!!!
    those songs were some of my favorite moments on SS
    I haven't seen them years.......
    were the monotones names something like
    Chris, Rich and Big Jeffrey (they were all named after there
    performers I believe)

    Wow what a blast from the past....
    cool :)

    Satire Bands...

    They all ROCK!!!

    Too bad they just have the real celebrities come in and sing uninspired "Parodies" of their songs (like Sherryl Crowe, and Goo Goo Dolls)

    Well... except U2's "Furry Happy Monsters" I could listen to that alllll day!!! :excited:

    I agree! I liked it better when they used muppets. I remember the ones mentioned, and I also remember Bruce Stringbean, Mick Swagger, The Beetles, Billy Idle, and all of those.

    Thanks for the welcome, btw I was a little dissapointed the "Little Jerry" was already taken, but all is well...

    I personally don't understand why they don't take all the Little Jerry songs, and do a rockumentary like they do on VH1. I think it would be hysterical, they could cover the history, behind the scenes, band interviews... making of the video...

    They could so much with it, and probably make a ton of money off of it. I know I'd buy a copy.

    BTW, Mad Lil' Jerry, nice avatar! :)

    Thank you,

    I got it from a picture of one of the SS records on sale on ebay. Since I can't find the video or any digital copies... it's the only photo I could find, which is sad because they don't use the character in anything that I'm aware of.

    & I run the Yahoo group, glad you made it.

    No problem... and if you ever come across a video of any Little Jerry songs, please let me know. I've been trying to get a copy of "Mad" and "Danger" forever with no luck.

  16. Mad Lil' Jerry

    Mad Lil' Jerry Well-Known Member

    Yeah, that'd be groovy man... and before I go any further, is it in english? The reason I ask is that there is a copy of "Mad" on a Shalome Sesame" or something like that, it's in Hebrew.


  17. ssetta

    ssetta Well-Known Member

    Yes, this is in English. It's from an old non-Noggin episode of SS.

    I have "With Every Beat Of My Heart". It's on the "Born TO Add" CD. Side note: Jeff Moss wrote this one, and then he wrote a song for "The Muppets Take Manhattan" which sounded VERY similar, "I'm Gonna Always Love You" (the song that was sung during the Muppet Babies segment).
