AllMusic Review by

Country novelties from the '60s to the '90s, as selected and annotated by novelty MC nonpareilDr. Demento. This is actually more subtle than the average Demento compilation, and includes some "core" classic country novelties: "When You're Hot, You're Hot" (Jerry Reed), "May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose" (Little Jimmy Dickens), "The Streak" (Ray Stevens), "You Can't Roller Skate in a Buffalo Herd" (Roger Miller), and "I'm My Own Grandpaw" (Homer & Jethro). There are a few somewhat lesser-known hee-haws by Jim Stafford, Tom T. Hall, Cledus Maggard, Billy Edd Wheeler, and others, as well as the obligatory track by Weird Al Yankovic.
