Dancing, Disney, and Drinking: y Carl brydeswhale: mcloveleigh: peathefeary: brunhiddensmusings: protectblkwomen: badgyal-k: meanmisscharles: lessdanthree: what drugs were they on when they made this Cab Calloway rotascoped! Whoever thought of this was drinking absinthe Thanks, Now I have nightmares this was long before cartoons were ever thought of as โ€˜for kidsโ€™, the target audience of this one was roughly 20-40betty boop cartoons featuring cab calloway singing, yes, but slang has changed so much you dont realize he was singing about opium, sugar daddies, death, weed, sex, booze, and gambling back when gambling was nearly as tabboo as sex and drugs. โ€˜minnie the moocherโ€™ where cab calloway is a dancing walrus is specifically about someone who does literally everything on that list but die most of the animation studios had their โ€˜thingโ€™ to make their animation stand out, disney had fluid motion linked with quality music, warner brothers had top notch dialogue with carefully crafted facial expressions, MGM had comedic timing down to the individual frame that no live action comedian could dream of achieving, terrytoons had the budget of a ham sandwitch and a fistfull of nickelsfleischer studios however had authentic jazz and heavy toned subject matter, often crossing the line of what we think of asย โ€˜cartoon violenceโ€™ into realistic idk why this is making me so emotional??? I love this. Iโ€™ve always had a love for cartoons This was what they were trying to emulate with the highway manโ€™s song in over the garden wall.
