The Wonderful World of Jonathan Winters is a comedy album, performed by Jonathan Winters.

The Wonderful World of Jonathan Winters was also the name of a television special in 1970.

With an unprecedented frenetic energy, Winters made obscure references to his mental illness and hospitalization during his stand-up comedy routines, most famously during the "flying saucer" bit. Winters casually mentions that if he wasn't careful, the authorities might put him back in the "zoo", referring to the institution.
