"The Hoot-Hoot I Scream" was an actual structure built in 1927 on Valley Blvd in Rosemead. The head rotated; the eyes, made from Buick headlamps, blinked; the sign: Hoot hoot, I scream, used elements of a theater marquee. After the war, the wrecking ball reduced the Hoot-Hoot Cafe to the history pages.
Now that's a serious hoot!
