Fictional turn-of-the-century composer of marches from a skit in the " Bush Is a Pussy" episode (11/07/1997) of sketch comedy television series Mr. Show.

His musical genius is only matched by his careless approach to composing, much to the dismay of his rival, Salini.

He is a parody combination of real composers John Philip Sousa and Mozart, as portrayed in the 1984 film Amadeus.

A later episode, "Sad Songs are Nature's Onions" (21 December 1998) mentions his March No. 34, used as the "Victory" march in numerous election campaigns.
