How Do You Like Them Apples?

Half-eaten poisoned apples come to life and dance around Andy Panda in Apple Andy, a 1945 release from Walter Lantz. The cartoon was built around the song “Up Jumps the Devil” sung by Del Porter.

I like how the trees in Terry Lind’s background painting have expressions.

There’s even a high-stepping apple core-us line. Some fine animation here.

Dick Lundy directs, while Emery Hawkins and La Verne Harding receive animation credits.

      What Steve Jobs saw just before he died.

  2. "Up jumps the devil, up jumps the devil, now the temptation comes around, up jumps the devil in the nightgown!"

  3. The animation of the apple cores dancing around Andy is definitely Paul Smith, and I'm guessing that the chorus girl apples are Pat Matthews. I could be wrong, it's just an educated guess.
