Next is a Betty Boop cartoon from 1933, "The Old Man of the Mountain," featuring the fabulous Cab Calloway and his orchestra. As a review at the Internet Archive wrote: " Another wonderful and imaginative cartoon. The music is by Cab Calloway and this cartoon features 2 tunes by Cab, "Old Man Of The Mountain" and "The Scat Song". The Fleisher organization cartoons of this period remain the gold standard of cartoons."
