Mr. Grilione seems to be a parody of the hugely popular TV show Gunsmoke (featuring James Arness as Mr. Dillon). No idea what prompted the Italian dialect.

How about "Japanese Bandstand" off of the very late Spike Jones LP "Omnibust"? It was the first record I owned. Paul Frees gives a bravura heavy buck-tooth yellowface performance that we found pretty funny when I was six and it was still hip to mock all foreigners. I've got an mp3 if by some chance you don't. (The LP also manages to make references to Chester and Mister Dillon and Doc in the course of a swingin' fairy tale about Cinderella Frankenstein.)
