Dickie Goodman had a long string of novelty hit songs and dumb ditties from the late 1950s-late 1970s starting "The Flying Saucer Parts 1 & 2" (1956, as Buchanan and Goodman). His numerous other hits also included "Ben Crazy" (1962), "Batman And His Grandmother" (1966), and "Mr. Jaws" (1975).
Bill Buchanan and Dickie Goodman are best remembered for their creation of the "break in" record format that consists of snippets of popular tunes spliced together and interspersed with dialog in the form of, e.g., a radio show or an interview.
