BUZZA CARDOZO MONSTER Record cards
Any thoughts?  I have 4 different of them I found today.  Anybody ever play these?  I saw that they have voice artists like MEL BLANC and were recorded by Columbia.  I found the image online, the one closest that I have is the same 4 characters in different poses: 

 

These are just like mine:

Really neat.

There are five greeting card/records in this series. I have all five and have listened to them all. They are greeting cards with the monsters illustrated on the front and the records on the inside of the card.
     The records are on a thin plastic coating over the card stock. Each record is between 2 minutes and 2minutes and 40 seconds long and features a short sketch using sound effects, music narration and voices. All five are narrated by Dracula (Lennie Weinrib doing a Bela Lugosi imitation). In one story, Dracula invites the listener into his house where all the monsters sing happy birthday, then Frankenstein's monster burns the house down. Frankenstein's monster talks on them, so does the Wolfman. Mel Blanc as the Wolfman does a lot of howling, and sometimes sounds a little bit like the Tasmanian Devil, and the Mummy mostly mumbles because his mouth is covered in bandages.
     Buzza Cardozo also made greeting card/records featuring the Warner Bros. cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny and Twwety Pie, and Mel Blanc did the voices on those, too.

I like these card/records a lot, especially the artwork. Here's the fifth one not pictured above...

Does each record/card have different recordings?  Two of the designs are birthday cards ... the one linked from YouTube - the monsters do sing "Happy Birthday" a bit.

Yes--each card has a different recording. On each of the two birthday cards the monsters sing happy birthday, but it's a different version of the song each time, and a different story. And there's a third birthday card, I forget what they do on that one, but I remember all the cards are different--they don't reuse any of the recordings for a different card. On the record with the Wolfman holding flowers I remember he recites love poetry.

Yes'm.  If there's 5 I've got 2 of 3 birthday cards.  If I'd gotten any of these as a card, I would've played 'em.  Zip... turntable.

Oh great! In order to hear the record, I have to destroy my collectible!  ;D

Yes'm.  I say that often, to be clear, deferential, and a smart-ass.  It's not intended as any kind of swipe.
