Magnificent, TVís original Nutty Professor, was created by former New
Orleans radio disk jockey Sid Noel. From 1959 to 1962, Morgus performed wacky
experiments in the breaks between horror flicks on WWL-TVís House of Shock.
After a short stint in New York City, Morgus packed up his laboratory and moved
to Detroit, where he hosted a daily five-minute comic weathercast, Morgus and
the Weather, and the late night scary movie fest, Morgus Presents.
1964 a series of Morgus comic strips appeared weekly in the Detroit edition of
TV Guide. Sid Noelís name
appeared on the strip as creator, but now it can be told that the strip was
actually written and drawn by Ken
Muse. No stranger to Detroit television, Muse leant his artistic talents to Tello-Test
with Joe Gentile, Sketches From Life, The Warren Michael Kelly Show,
Sagebrush Shorty and
is a small sampling of Ken Museís Morgus strips. It was his first chance to do
what he always wanted to do- draw comics. Muse sold his first strip to a
newspaper syndicate shortly after Morgus.
A big thank you to Judy Martin and the Morgusian archive group The Students of Science, for preserving and supplying the vintage Morgus comic strips.
