Among the best animated shorts ever
17 September 2003 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

I love musical animated shorts, so I was pretty much guaranteed to love this one. However, I think the animation of the title character, Sally Swing, who is discovered by Betty Boop when she's looking for someone to lead the swing concert at a college, is superb. I've never seen more fluid dance animation anywhere. Highly recommended! 10/10.
