"Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb" - The detective drama 77 SUNSET STRIP/ABC/1958-64 featured a hip, young parking lot attendant named Gerald Lloyd Kookson III (Edd Byrnes) more popularly called "Kookie" who was constantly running a comb through the locks of his hair.

1959 Album with "Lend Me You Comb"

Kookie's narcissistic habit of combing his hair inspired a hit Warner Brothers 45 rpm rock and roll recording "Kookie, Kookie (Lend Me Your Comb)" (1959).

In the song, a girl (Connie Stevens) continually asks Kookie to put down his comb so she can get romantic. The song was originally performed during the opening episode of the 1959-60 season when Kookie helped Stuart Bailey (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.) catch a jewel thief.
