Mwa-wa-wa? Mwa mwa!

File this in the “Random Trivia” corner of your skull:

 

According to Leonardo Moran of Bill Melendez Productions, “Composer John Scott Trotter directed his trombonist to ‘enunciate’ the teacher’s dialog as though it were a trombone riff. Trotter…would read the teacher’s line, e.g., ‘Linus, where’s your homework?’ then direct the trombonist to repeat Trotter’s inflection through his instrument.”

User-edited site Wikipedia explains that this called for a “trombone with a plunger mute opening and closing on the bell to simulate adult ‘voices.'” – Ask Yahoo!

Always thought the voices sounded a bit musical, but couldn’t quite tell for sure.
