Top beardy Scottish comedian Billy Conelly is an excellent zither player as well as having a great line in filthy jokes.

The jaw harp really comes into its own in the closing theme tune for Hanna Barbera's Scooby Doo (or was it Captain Caveman?)

I've confused myself now.

I don't think it was Scooby Doo, although I never saw the later series with Scrappy Doo in it.

I am pretty sure it was "Captain Cave Ma-aa--aa--aan"!

I did not like the Scooby Doo series that had Scrappy Doo in it.

The Scooby Doo movie was awful!

Zoikes! I never saw the Scooby Doo movie.

Did he play an unusual instrument then? smiley - winkeye

I remember a ghostly organ that played itself...that's pretty unusual, not to mention creepy. Could a ghost play a theremin I wonder? What sort of noise would it make?

Probably a noise like the music from those 50's tv programmes...
