Andy Panda is very happy running his tailor shop until a huge, hungry moth flies through the keyhole, and starts making a buffet dinner out of all the clothes in Andy's shop. Andy's attempts to get him out are unsuccessful, until the moth has had his fill---all of Andy's stock---and departs the premises. Written by

I feel that Darrell Calker's music scores during his employ with Walter Lantz's studio represent some of the most musical and profound in all of animation... or any films for that matter.
Woody Dines Out, The Hollywood Matador, The Dizzy Acrobat, Goodbye Mr. Moth and Pantry Panic are just a small example of the superb original writing style Mr. Calker utilized. You might hear a great jazz violin, vibraphone, piano or guitar soloists featured in any of his original music.
His blending of instruments, color, harmonies, tempos and timing to the animation are impeccable. He knew the art of reinforcing the visual with the mystique of a finely crafted music score.
In far too many instances, the music is rarely given the credit it deserves. And yet, it's the music that often makes the difference in whether the completed effort works at all. And there's no greater area of music importance then in the imaginative world of animation.
I agree with the earlier comment, there should be a CD release of Darrell Calker's music contribution, much like the Carl Stallings CD's Warner Bros. put out.
