The previous reviewer is confusing Len Lye's stop motion film, also called 'Peanut Vendor, with the Max Fleischer produced Screen Song of the same name. Dave Fleischer was not a director per se but a gag man who contributed to much of the flavor of the Fleischer cartoons. The actual director was listed as the first animation credit - in this case Seymour Kneitel. The second credit was given to the animator who animated the most on the short- in this case Tom Johnson. This particular cartoon involves the rhythmic antics (Fleischer cartoons often animated to the beat of a popular song) of zoo animals set to the famous tune. In the center of the film a live-action Amida asks the audience to 'sing along with the bouncing ball'-a phrase which has entered the common vernacular with few knowing it's origin. The film ends with a Hawaiian guitar reprise of the sung while the zoo animals consume peanuts. One curious element of the film is the phonetic translation of the Spanish lyrics (the song originated from Cuba) during the the 'bouncing ball' sequence. I'm guessing this was to help English speaking patrons sing along easier. The results are hilariously confusing-just try and sing along! All and all a superior example of the Screen Song series at it's height.
