Ha cha cha cha ?[edit]

Ive seen many impersoniations of Jimmy durante having his "ha cha cha cha" phrase, but Ive been trying to look for Jimmy durante actually saying it himself, anyone that can point me in the right direction? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:25, May 18, 2008‎

A song[edit]

I once heard a song, which I belief was sung by Jimmy Durante. I cannot remember the exact lyrics, but it went something like 'One day, I read a book'...and at the end he sings 'I might read another book again'. I would love to get hold of this song - what is the title?

"animation" section mostly trivia[edit]

mislabeled at best - could be deleted —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:31, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

No. It's a measure of his wide recognition and popularity. Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots 17:06, 15 May 2009 (UTC) changed for "Frosty the Snowman" to 1969, when the show was introduced. Confusion with the song, which was released in 1950 (not 1951). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:45, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

place of birth[edit]

The summmary box (or whatever it's called) says "Brooklyn, NY", but the article says the Lower East Side, which is in Manhattan ... ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:26, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

There is a contradiction, but I do not have ready access to a reliable source. I will search. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 04:16, 13 October 2012 (UTC)


I think there should more mention in the article re the re-birth of Durante's singing especially of the repeated use of his recorded songs in the Ephron movies.Dcrasno (talk) 03:38, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

"Television" is a complete mess[edit]

On what TV show did Durante first appear?

Much of it seems to be about The Big Show, which was a radio program

Le plombier amoureux (1932) as Tony ?[edit]

Referring to the French Wiki, this is the French version of The Passionate Plumber. Did JD play another character (instead of Julius J. McCracken in the English version) ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:53, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

Lion King?[edit]

Pumbaa does a brief Durante impression while singing "Hakuna Matata" in The Lion King. Where, when? Without a reference, I'm going to remove this claim. - Brian Kendig (talk) 06:01, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
