Funny Aminals (yes, it's supposed to be spelled like that) is a ProgressiveRock band consisting of cartoonist Creator/IsaacBaranoff and a computer synthesizer.

The music of Funny Aminals is roughly comparable to the works of Music/FrankZappa and Music/CaptainBeefheart. Baranoff describes his music as a fusion of chamber music, {{Jazz}}, and rock.

Albums can be found [[http://horndogs1.blogspot.com/search/label/Music here]].

!!This band and its music provides examples of:

* CreatorThumbprint: [[TheStoner Obligatory stoner references]]. The song titles "Bong Toking Monkeys From Hell" and "[[Film/GrandmasBoy I'm Way Too Stoned To Drive To The Devil's House]]".
* GenreRoulette: "Fear" is a avant-garde piece with a bunch of sound effects, and "Stampeding Cattle Through The Vatican" is basically distorted guitar feedback.
* {{Sampling}}: Funny Aminals' free releases contain a bunch of these: Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat, Hot Summer In The City, Adventures of Ford Fairlane
** ''Vengeance Is Mine!'' samples from the movies ''Save The Tiger'', ''Film/{{Convoy}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Coonskin}}'' and ''Film/ADayAtTheRaces'' and the TV series ''Series/BlackBooks''.
** ''Hell Is For Politicians'' contains samples from ''Film/WildAtHeart'', ''Carny'', ''Film/ApocalypseNow'', ''Blackenstein'' and ''Film/TheDeadZone''.
* ShoutOut: The song and album titles are mostly Shout Outs. In addition to the ''Grandma's Boy'' reference above and the name of the band (see below), other Shout Outs include:
** ''A Bucket of Blood'' is where the ''Obscure Hobo'' album title comes from.
** ''Film/BlueVelvet'' resulted in the song title "Here's To Your Fuck, Frank"
** "Stampeding Cattle Through The Vatican" is a quote from ''Film/BlazingSaddles''
** "The Van Was Last Seen Headed To Your Momma's Bedroom" is a line from a ''Film/UpInSmoke'' deleted scene.
** On ''Vengeance'', the song title "Blow Me Where The Pampers Is" is from Film/{{PCU}}, and the album title, ''Vengeance Is Mine!'', is the title of a Literature/MikeHammer book.
** The album title ''Hell Is For Politicians'' is a parody of the Music/PatBenatar song "Hell Is For Children".
* XtremeKoolLetterz: the band name. Is actually the title of a comic book anthology which featured works by RobertCrumb, Terry Zwigoff, and the first appearance of Art Spiegelman's ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}''.
