Sing-a-longs in the early sound period

by Kate Fortmueller

This 1933 Dave Fleischer animated short made during the early sound period combines a popular tin pan alley song from 1927 with animation and live action. Sing-alongs had been popular during the silent period when they were illustrated by photographic slides and led by house musicians. Here recorded music, a "live" singer and the "bouncing ball" encourages the audience to participate.
