Storyline

Hot Breath Harry is a hot trumpeter at a jazz club. He finds himself drafted into the Army, where he's assigned to be the bugler of an African-American company. But everyone hates the bugler, because he blows reveille at the ungodly hour of 5 AM sharp. Sure enough, on his first day, Harry gets pelted with everything imaginable. He lands against a wall, where his trumpet falls on him. He plays a swinging wakeup that segues into the title tune, and nobody minds waking up to this. Everyone swings through the whole day, even when three soldiers march into a lake and two soldiers, followed by a grinning alligator, march out. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The music is great, but this one will not be in general release or broadcast for quite a while.
6 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, an Academy Award nominee, has great music, mostly the title tune, the animation is very good and it's a fairly decent effort. But most people will never see this, for understandable reasons. The cartoon is one large string of racial jokes and stereotypes from start to finish. If someone ever does a project to collect and release the music from the Lantz material, as was done with the Warner Brothers shorts, this is at the head of the list. Otherwise, you can forget about this one being made generally available anytime soon, if ever. Worth tracking down, but not for everyone. Recommended for the less easily disturbed. This one was over the top, folks.
