Kid Jess : I guess koko the clown's dancing was based on this

DJsaxby16 : Don't you just hate it when you go into a cave and a ghost walrus starts singing Cab Calloway?

Aidan Childers : 1. Skeletons drink liquids 2. Skeletons die from drinking liquids 3. Skeletons have ghosts

SirClawedfrog : Highway man...

SneakyLittlePirate : I adore the history of animation.

The ghost who took your fork : This and the koko the clown one are so entrancing.

Vlad T : If I saw a ghost walrus dancing, I would just go with it and enjoy

K-Blue : love how cool and sneakily music got away with drug references back then. Smokey was "cokey" because he was a coke addict, and showed Minnie how to "kick the gong around", meaning she smoked opium. The 50's and 60's seemed to really crack down on stuff like that (at least in mainstream music) but by the late 70's onward I guess people loosened up again. Weird how that happens.

SATAN : Drugs are a hell of a drug

Roberto Barela : Love the coke reference. "She loved him, but he was cokey."

Personmr : i just realized that minnie the moocher is about a guy taking a woman to a chinese area and getting her high on opium.

Pyronautica : The reason this scene was so uncanny was because an animation moved at a fluent rate, and looked like a real person as an animation. But the movement was so ghostly and smooth that it seems like movements no human can do. Thus, uncanny.

bat man : i remember my first time walking in to a cave being confronted by a singing ghost walrus. ahh, good times

Lord Kristine : I feel as though those cats are symbolic of fat cats who leach off their mothers to become businessmen. Moochers, in short. Maybe I'm overthinking this . . .

Will Owens : i like the way ghost/walrus Calloway looks at the screen at 1:46. you can even is mouth form the R when he says moocher. such attention to detail like that is one of the reasons i love this cartoon.

Just Blox : 3:28 first dab

Alyce VA : im the highway man

Kenan Tutsi : This a song about a *Thicc* belly dancer who's *pimp* smokey, gave her opium, she then *dreamt* of a better pimp

André Crema : I love Cab Calloway so much But what the fuck was the 30"s? Damn

Thunder Goku : Ok, what was with the obsession skeletons?

Jared Cogswell : Surprisingly creepy

Parisiii : i think i like this version the best, the voice(not sure if its still cab here) is just so varying and fun to listen to on this one

Female Nightmare Puppet : I can't stop thinking about this song

creamclassic : Look Who's Talking Too brought me here.

blackbokuto : Cab Calloways dance is to sick lol.

TheAndreagon29 : i saw this on the movie, "Look Who's Talking Too."

wileyk209zback : The reason why Cab Calloway's character was a walrus ghost was probably to make it easier for the animators to rotoscope Cab's dance moves (rotoscoping is like the old-timey equivalent of motion capture, in case you don't know.)

KosaiAvonej : Am I the only one who totally sees this as where Michael Jackson got his moves from?!

Dane McClendon : its cool seeing cab calloways moves that inspired saint james and this in the beginning of the vid. dude was slick

Bold and Brash : 1:56 RIP headphone users

Filatuss : Is it Mr.Cab dancing in the start? :D

Pseudo Wounds : Back then we had this, now we have things like Salad Fingers and Dog of Man. Creepiness in cartoons didn't die, people. You just don't know where to search for it.

Lena Armand : I first saw this on look who's talking and have searched for this since then. Thank you for uploading : )

Amie Fortman : I love the footage of Calloway in the beginning-- he doesn't even seem to know the camera's watching him.  He's just having his own private jam session. :)

katia the khajiit : the music is damn good

DeM : Damn ghost walrus , he has the moves

Red Queen : He has the most amazing voice!

Brahim Dahbi : Why do people get so creeped out by this? If it didn't scare the people who watched this back then, it shouldn't scare the peope now...

Michael Nelson : Would the genre be considered jazz?

Adam Ranieri : 2:10 did the the skeletons just die... and turn into ghosts?

Alianna Taylor : Im gonna sing this song in my talent show

misterafros : im here cuz of Earl sweatshirt's mirror video.

flowerandpeaceangel : watching this because in Looks Who"s Talking Too Mikey was watching this cartoon anyone else remember that or came here because of that.

turnsout689 : Because brainless idiots have interests that are light-years from anything with class and any artistic merit.

Angel delacruz : 1:56 calm down

Pilantra • : "Ande como se tivesse uma arma machucando o quadril" 0:26

Philipp DeFuckass : 0:44 dab

Robot Zombie : Gotta love that intro!

Shelley Reid : This is super creepy but I'm not triggered 🤔
