Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart had a strong interest in scatological humor. This interest is reflected in his letters and in a few recreational compositions.

The scatological material has long been a puzzle for Mozart scholarship, and there have been two main responses. In one view, the scatology was the result of a condition from which Mozart is claimed to have suffered, particularly Tourette syndrome. The other view deals with the scatology by seeking an understanding of the role of scatological humor in Mozart's family, his society, and his times.
