R. Crumb and Dr. Demento were both admitted to the Order of the Pineapple on 18 January 2012.
R. Crumb (Robert Crumb) is the creator of Mr. Natural, Fritz the Cat, Devil Girl, and Keep on Truckin'. He is one of the most prominent of the underground artists, and his work laid the foundation for the underground going mainstream with programs like Beavis and Butthead, The Simpsons, and South Park. While working well outside the mainstream, he also illustrated a graphic novel version of the Book of Genesis, several album covers, and has had his work featured in museums.
"Hey! Great news! I have just been admitted to the Order/Disorder of the Pineapple. What an honor! I received a nice-looking certificate with an ornate border, which I would frame and hang on the wall if my name had been printed on it in large, prominent type easy to see from four feet away, but as it does not pass this four-foot test I will simply file it away with various other awards and honors I’ve received over the years (mostly from comics festivals).
"I’m flattered to be classed in the same league with Dr. Demento. I met him a long, long time ago. I went to his house, where there were stacks of old records everywhere and he generously let me take some rare and great 78s from the 1920s. Nice man."
