Morgus the 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.

 In 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 Wixieís Wonderland.

 Here 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 Morgan and the Morgusian archive group The Students of Science, for preserving and supplying the vintage Morgus comic strips.
