Bimbo and Koko try to escape from an alligator in “I’ll Be Glad When You’re Dead You Rascal You.” Swinging on some vines doesn’t help. Instead, they roll up a curtain which reveals the great Louis Armstrong and his band playing the title song.
Louis says something I can’t decipher over the music. He gets sets to play. That’s enough for the plot (?) so the cartoon curtain rolls down, and Bimbo and Koko resume trying to escape.
It’s a kick seeing Louis this young. His orchestra is hot in this cartoon but the gags aren’t as strong or strange as in some of the other Fleischer music-based tunes like “Minnie the Moocher” or “Snow White.”
Willard Bowsky and Ralph Somerville get the arbitrary screen credit.
