a little spanish flea

In an old Simpsons episode (The Otto Show) Homer is waiting for Bart and Milhouse in his car and turns on the radio. Spanish Flea is playing and he sings the following lyrics.

There was a little Spanish flea.
A record star he thought he’d be.
He heard of singers like Beatles,
The Chipmunks he’d seen on TV.
Why not a little Spanish flea?

And so he hid inside a dog…

There is an amusing flash movie called Mr. Nice that plays the Spanish Flea song. In this touching masterpiece, a pink blob with eyes, a belly button and a pair of underpants says that he doesn’t have any arms or hands, but that doesn’t stop him from dancing, then asks if you’d like to see him dance. If you choose yes, he girates his lower torso to the melodious song of Spanish Flea.

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass composed the song, making all of this possible. They deserve an award.
