NOT ANOTHER J. FRED MUGGS

I’m in need of a chimp. Not for me. For The Daily Buzz....

...the last time a TV morning concept swept the country, the real star was J. Fred Muggs, who was of the chimpanzee persuasion. Peggy, whose show turf includes pets, said she’d love to have a chimp — said so even after I called for regular billing, not just a guest spot.

So if you’ve got a chimp with show biz flair, please let me know. I’ll try to set things up with The Daily Buzz. For the usual agent’s commission, of course.
