I Ain't Got Nobody was a nice initial showcase of The Mills Brothers in a Max Fleischer Screen Songs cartoon short
This Max Fleischer Screen Songs cartoon/live-action short marked the introduction of The Mills Brothers on screen. The cartoon has a lion watching his TV, switching to various channels until it comes to the group I just mentioned. Then, as they perform "The Tiger Rag", this lion suddenly has some magic powers as everything in his house is held sway under the group's power as many animals and inanimate objects move or dance or play instruments. When the Mills Brothers are once again seen performing, they then do the song that's also the title of this short. Most of the gags are pretty amusing but the best one was after the song and Bouncing Ball sequence. I won't reveal it but it's on YouTube if you want to watch it. So that's a recommendation of I Ain't Got Nobody.
