When Arky unsuccessfully tries to serenade his girl, he resorts to strapping an old-school phonograph to his back and miming to this singer's album.Sample lyrics:
"If a gnu knew what I knew he'd be coo-coo
If he didn't do what I'd do...
I'd fly from Peru to Timbuctu, from
Kalamazoo to Manitou, just to be
Close to you..."
The singer's name is likely a joke on real singer Johnnie Ray.
