Mainly A Showcase For Louis Armstrong
2 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the strangest movie titles ever, animated or not. What it is, really, is a tiny showcase for Louis Armstrong and his Orchestra. Armstrong's band plays and Louis sings, and most of it is good stuff, upbeat and entertaining.

The cartoon is a mixture of animation and Louis' face here and there looking above as Bimbo and Koko run for their lives, in tune to the music.

There is not much Betty Boop in here. It's mainly the two cartoon characters and Louis.

Overall, it's so-so, not really all that funny but the music is very good.
