Or "Minyik," or "Minjuvic"—somebody set the record straight! Rick Moranis played this polka-singing native of Leutonia with Ambrose Burnside facial hair. A former member of The Happy Wanderers, he struck out on his own, but remained on good terms with the band, as he returned to perform "Stairway to Heaven" with them on The Happy Wanderers TV show, really a sketch on the May 21, 1982 episode of SCTV. He also appears in the 1984 HBO mockumentary, The Last Polka, performing with and reminiscing about The Happy Wanderers. Rick Moranis released a comedy album on IRS in 1989, called You, Me, the Music and Me, which features a Linsk-afied version of The Doors' "Light My Fire."
