Strange Moments in Animation History

I was researching “scatting” for a show I’m in and did a YouTube search for Cab Calloway, one of the masters of scat, and discovered that he was in Betty Boop cartoons. Out of curiosity, I watched and at first, the cartoon is exactly as expected…cheesy. Then, when Cab’s voice comes into the scene, the animation is surreal, eerie, and just plain awesome! Here’s the good part featuring “Minnie the Moocher”…It’s worth a watch.
