: Does anyone know the origin of the above phrase (possibly also spelled "Murgatroyd")? Phrase Finder lists it, but does not give its origins.

We had a discussion about this phrase and it should be in the archives. I couldn't find it. Maybe someone else will have better luck accessing it. If we can't, maybe we can collectively reconstruct the information.

See: the meaning and origin of the phrase 'Heavens to Murgatroyd'.
