Ah, yes, the question form "Vas you dere, Charley?" rings an even
louder bell in my memory, I suppose because the lack of S-V agr struck
my prescriptivist-teenager ears. Dave Bergdahl adds that it was
supposedly Yinglish (Yiddish English), but would Baron von Munchausen
have spoken Yinglish? The radio program could make him whatever it
wanted to, of course.
