Trouble, oh we got trouble, right here in River City!
My nephews have never seen this zippy ’60s musical, and yet, they kind of have, thanks to a love of The Simpsons fueled by Disney+.
The episode Marge vs. the Monorail, with Phil Hartman filling in for Robert Preston as a tuneful con artist, remains a high point for the series, and shows just how much The Music Man became ingrained in our national consciousness.
The original remains a fun time, with Preston in peak form.
“How far you going, friend?”
“Wherever the people are as green as the money … friend.”
