Did You Know?

Because of incorrect information (probably obtained from the US copyright register), Ben Hardaway was often listed as the second director of this film. Later, a title card of this film was discovered stating the second director was actually Cal Howard. The complete opening titles of this film are, however, considered lost.See more »

For 'Swingers' Only, 16 April 2007
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

If you like "swing music," and are a "young cat" at heart, you'll love this Looney Tunes animated short.

At Katnp College, "swingology" is one of the subjects and the students are having a great time. The professor is hilarious and has "everyone's sonnets sounding like Kostelanetz" expect when Johnny gets up to perform. He doesn't know what to do and winds up in the corner with a dunce hat on and ostracized from the rest of the students.

Later that night, the "rhythm bug" suddenly hits Johhny and now he's one cool cat.

This a colorful, musical effort. How much you like it will depend what you think of the music. It's very dated, but it swings enough for me to enjoy this. The colorful clothes on all the characters was fun to see, too.
