I would have sided with Warner Bros. in Bing Crosby's lawsuit against them
24 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Back when Warner Bros. animation was still in its relative infancy - and Mel Blanc wasn't yet providing the voices - they made this quirky short in which an insect caricature of Bing Crosby gets all the female bugs to swoon, but proves to be a wimp once a spider shows up. These guys often turn out to be worthless, don't they? I see that Bing Crosby filed a lawsuit against WB for portraying him as a coward. Well, as it turns out, BC was worse than that. He was very strict with his family (almost to the point of cruelty), and apparently an anti-Semite. I would have easily sided with WB in BC's lawsuit against them, just because he was such a creep.

So, if nothing else, "Bingo Crosbyana" is worth seeing as a historical reference.
