I Feel Like a Feather in the Breeze was another hilarious Max Fleischer Screen Song cartoon
Sign at the top of a tall building: "The Roof Garden-Fresh Food-Fresh Air-Fresh Waiters". At the entrance below, the speedy revolving doors go outside on the sidewalk to make various people go in. One funny-looking little man manages to sidestep them as he enters. He's a waiter in the place who takes a spigot out of the beer barrel as he serves the customers. One of them demands swiss cheese which this waiter obliges by shooting holes in them! After a few more hilarious gags, we open the curtain revealing the live-action Jack Denny and His Orchestra as their unidentified vocalist sings the title song. Unlike other Max Fleischer Screen Song cartoons, it's not until the singer is through that we see the printed lyrics on screen with the Famous Bouncing Ball as Denny and his band play on. Also no cartoon character appears at the end of the song to continue stepping on the words. The funny-looking waiter, by the way, would eventually go by the name of Wiffle Piffle and would later appear in a couple of Betty Boop cartoons among others he made. He was created by animator Tom Johnson. Anyway, I Feel Like a Feather in the Breeze was a very funny cartoon that I highly recommend. It's on the Uncle John's Crazy Town site if you're interested.
