Van Beuren Jungle

Don and Waffles run into weird, made-up creatures in the jungle in Jungle Jazz (1930).

It’s typical fare. Waffles stands there while Don goes through gyrations of fear. He twists his body around when he sees one fuzzy ball.

Another with horns pokes his head into the foreground and shows off his teeth. Waffles shakes in a cycle.

Oh, and there are large spider-like things with skulls for heads in this jungle, too. Waffles twirls around and runs out of the scene.

The cartoon ends with a quartet of animals singing, with their heads zooming toward the camera.

John Foster and Harry Bailey get a "by" credit, with Gene Rodemich supplying the score.
