Cartoon Network's “Mighty
MagiSwords”, created by TV's Kyle Carrozza! 'Tis a
triumph! Watch the show now on Cartoon Network, their website &
App, or on iTunes & Amazon!
Long version for
the uninitiated: Kyle A. Carrozza, known here at The Funny
Music Project (the FuMP .com)
and on “The Dr. Demento Show” as TV's Kyle,
prolific purveyor of silly songs, created an excellent animated
series for Cartoon Network, “Mighty MagiSwords”. The show takes
place in a medieval-ish fantasy world centering around a pair of
siblings, Vambre and Prohyas, the “Warriors For Hire” who make a
living as mission-minded mercenaries. Aiding them in their many
quests are their favorite things to collect, their MagiSwords, which
are dozens of swords imbued with magical powers and can do anything
from summoning deluges of water, shooting gigantic tomatoes, or
clipping your fingernails.
Their adventures began in May of 2015 in micro-cartoons on the
Cartoon Network Anything App, as well as ten 3-minute-long shorts
posted at the Cartoon Network website and on their YouTube page.
From the moment I saw them, I instantly became a huge fan of the
show. To make a very long story short, in the following 6 months
Kyle got my foot in the door at Cartoon Network, eventually leading
to me becoming a storyboarder, writer, and voice-over actor on the
next orders of “Mighty MagiSwords” content. It was (and is) my
life-long-dream job on my new favorite animated show.
As MarsCon 2016 approached, Carrie Dahlby and I conspired to
surprise Kyle and his wife Lindsay (who also works on MagiSwords) by
not only showing up in costume as Vambre and Prohyas, but by also
performing a new song parody in tribute to “Mighty MagiSwords” in
character to kick off my Music Guest Of Honor concert. You can see
the video of this live surprise performance, complete with Kyle
& Lindsay's reactions, on my YouTube page.
The song, done to the tune of “The
Warrior” by Patty Smyth of Scandal, is based on the
first ten 3-minute long “Mighty MagiSwords” shorts released in 2015.
Yesterday, the full TV Series of “Mighty MagiSwords” premiered
on Cartoon Network with an episode storyboarded by myself and
Zoe Moss. To celebrate the occasion, and to help promote the show to
the full extent that I can to my fanbase ranging in the hundreds,
Carrie and I recorded the studio version of the song to post here
for you all to share and enjoy. The backing track music and final
mix were done by MagiMaestro, Jeff Dutton aka
Thanks so much to Kyle, Lindsay, the powers that be at CN for giving
me a chance on the show, to Bonecage, and of course my partner in
clandestine spoofery, Carrie Dahlby. I hope you all will check out
“Mighty MagiSwords” and that you'll tell all your loves ones about
Official Video: The Donald Trump Club March Adele, Aerosmith, REM, the Rolling Stones, and Neil Young have all asked Donald Trump to stop using their songs in his campaign. Outrageous, right?! Makes you want to recruit an old redneck to sucker-punch them all!
So here, Trumpophiles. We offer you this. Our hope is that it provides the Trump 2016 campaign a theme song befitting its maturity level.

New in the FuMP Store
The FuMP Volume 58 which features all of our songs from July and August is now available as a digital download. CDs will begin shipping shortly. Click here to order your copy.
Updated Shipping Policy Last June we implemented free domestic shipping on all purchases from our store as an experiment. We have since analyzed the results of that experiment, drawn our conclusions, and have now implemented the next phase of our evil scheme to rid Devo's basement of all this merchandise.
We are now offering free domestic shipping if you order five or more items from the store. Any physical item qualifies: CDs, t-shirts, books, etc. Digital goods do not count toward the five items as they do not contain mass. And sadly, due to the ridiculously high price of international shipping, we can't extend this evil scheme to customers outside of the US.
Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to shipping you huge boxes of CDs for free!
