Bob Burns was a well known musical comedian of the 1930s. He created a character called "The Arkansas Traveler", a hillbilly-like guy with many wacky relatives, and he always played a homemade horn-like instrument called the "bazooka" (and he was often referred to as "Bob Bazooka Burns"). He appeared with Bob Crosby's band in the 1930s, which led to 12 movie appearances, always in character. He was married to fellow hillbilly Judy Canova from 1936 to 1939. He passed away in 1956 at the age of 65.
