Storyline

The Lord sees that the stock value of "Pair-o-dice" is dropping on the exchange so he dispatches a slow-witted and slow-talking angel to sinful Harlem to recruit new customers. When this fails, God finds success sending a group of musical angels with a little more swing in their style, so much so that even the Devil wants to join up! Written by P. Silvestro

Trivia

One of the "Censored 11" banned from T.V. syndication by United Artists in 1968 (then the owners of the Looney Tunes film library) for alleged racism. Ted Turner continued the ban when he was hired and stated that these films will not be re-issued and will not be put on Home Video. These cartoons will probably never air on television again, and only non-Warner Bros. licensed public domain video tapes will probably ever have these cartoons on them. See more »

A marvelous gem that will probably never see release or broadcast again unless it's public domain

This is a beautiful musical short that is frowned on these days because it features caricatures of Stephin Fetchit, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, Louie Armstrong and others. It's really too bad, because the jazz is great and it's a wonderful piece of animation. Unfortunately, the prevailing attitude these days seems to be that animation is for kids when the reality is these shorts were made for adults and children both. You'll have to dig to find this, but it's worth the time and effort. Most highly recommended.
