Cab Calloway's The Skunk Song was another amusing Soundie I watched on YouTube
This was another Soundie I watched on YouTube. In this one, Cab Calloway and The Cabaliers are singing about how The Big Bad Wolf only talks about his Disney money, Felix the Cat is fat and rich, and Mickey the Mouse is riding in his motor car, while the skunk moans about how "nobody loves me" on account of him just being a "dirty old skunk". That's basically it on what the song's about. Quite entertaining, nonetheless, with Calloway making his gestures and faces during his part of the song. This was another of these "music videos" of the time that played on Panorams (film jukeboxes) at restaurants, bars, and train or bus stations. So on that note, The Skunk Song is worth a look.
