It's Cab! Hooray!
19 September 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I've always been a big Cab Calloway fan, so naturally I had to go see this short. I was not disappointed. We get plenty of vocals from Mister Hi-De-Ho himself, and we even get to see the band featured on "Some of These Days". The plot is a bit hokey, but then again, who cares? It's not about the plot, it's about the music, and the music is terrific! We get to hear Cab's vocal hysterics on "I've Got a Right to Sing" the blues and "Frisco Flo". We also get to hear "Hi De Ho Miracle Man", which is one of the many songs written to capitalize on the success of "Minnie the Moocher" and its call-and-response section. All in all, it's immensely enjoyable and immensely entertaining.
