Animation / Music: Minnie the Moocher with Cab Calloway & Betty Boop

Starting with a phenomenal live moment where Cab Calloway free-form dances to his orchestra swinging slow & sweet to St. James Infirmary. Then things get rolling.

Home life is tough for Betty, so she hits the road with her friend Bimbo. They venture into a haunted forest and seek refuge in a dark cave. Within, they encounter the alter-ego of Cab and his band, the ghost of walrus backed by a symphony of skeletons, monsters, and condemned ghouls.

The ending is quite spectacular.
