Storyline

In this Swing Symphony cartoon things are hopping on an Arabian desert when local tribesmen gather at the Adobe Club for an evening of middle-eastern jitterbugging, boogie-woogie and truckin'. A very-shapely-indeed girl is dancing to a song about Abou Ben Boogie, the Oriental Rug Cutter, whose advances toward the girl are thwarted by a dancing horse. The dancer manages to elude Ben Boogie and all the other wolfish attendees. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Abou Ben Boogie is a wonderfully sexy Walter Lantz '40s cartoon
12 September 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Abou Ben Boogie is one of Walter Lantz' Swing Symphony cartoons that relied heavily on the swing-jazz music that was so popular during the '40s era this short was made in. It takes place in some Arabian country at a restaurant where all the men go ga-ga over a dancing harem girl with bare midriff who sings the title song. Many gags abound around the men, that girl, and a camel who also dances. Lots of Tex Avery-inspired scenes like the enormously widening eyes and other funny reactions to the sexy dancing of the girl provide most of the short's humor as hilariously directed by Jimmy "Shamus" Culhane. Well worth seeing for any '40s animation buff.
