Storyline

"Trees and Jamaica Daddy" was the first of a UPA series (short-lived) that featured two different subjects (plot, characters)running about 3.5 minutes each, on a seven-minute reel. The first one here was titled "Trees", featuring a little girl named Hattie giving her version of the birds, the bees and trees. The second one on the reel was called "Jamaica Daddy", about the animated Hamilton Ham and his band, who tell all about, in music and the usual UPA animation style, Jamaica Daddy, and his family tree in calypso fashion. "Ham-and-Hattie" were not a team, and did not appear together in this cartoon. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Excellent musical cartoons

This is actually two cartoons inside a framing device and the two cartoons are basically animated songs. In fact, in my opinion, the song for Jamaica Daddy is more memorable than most of the Best Song nominees for the 1957 Oscars! The cartoon is on one of the Columbia Classics Series although not listed on the box. The one in question also has Robin Hoodlum and The Tell-Tale Heart among others. The whole tape is excellent and Trees and Jamaica Daddy are delightful.
