Wildman of Wildsville

lord buckley vs. groucho marx:

From Wikipedia

Go Man Van Gogh - A stereotypical cartoon beatnik/wild man who lives in the jungles of Wildsville on the Hungry I-Land. He often paints various things with his paintbrush, including paintings, vines to swing on, and fake backdrops to fool enemies (ala Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner). He also often plays a set of bongo drums, and scat-sings and speaks with various beatnik stereotype slang. Though he did not appear in many episodes, he was somewhat of a recurring character in the bumpers. He was originally voiced by Lord Buckley in "The Wildman of Wildsville" (a 1959 theatrical short that aired as an episode of the TV series) and then by Scatman Crothers after Buckley's death in 1960.
