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

DeM : Damn ghost walrus , he has the moves

Just Blox : 3:28 first dab

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

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. :)

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.

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

SneakyLittlePirate : I adore the history of animation.

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.

SirClawedfrog : Highway man...

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

WytZox1 : Wow! Cab Calloway invented the moon walk long before Michael Jackson was born! ☺

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

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 . . .

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.

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

Jossie Mime : I dont understand why some people find this disturbing ...

Katie Shady : i would strip to this

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

Hanyuu Hiiragi : I was just listening to The Highwayman's Song from OTGW, and it brought me to this.

ullieeepo : Don't do drugs kids... or the singing walrus will get you.

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

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...

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

TanookiPants : No, it's cool; not like I needed to sleep anyways.

Ogami Ittou : This is a thousand times better than the CGI shit they make nowadays.

stephen duffy : CAB CALLOWAY with brilliant, mind bending animation. A stunning combo.

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.

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

Alyce VA : im the highway man

Thir is : i want to mess with a guy name smokey

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

"The Narrator" : This is my favorite cuphead level

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

Jossie Mime : I wanna learn how to dance like that ...

Jared Cogswell : Surprisingly creepy

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

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

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.

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

blackbokuto : Cab Calloways dance is to sick lol.

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

Olivia Ludwig : My favorite thing about this is how hypnotic it is. I regularly loose interest midway through a video due to my lack of an attention span. But this song always puts me in a trance. I come back to it every few days or so.

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.)

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

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

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

Michael Nelson : Would the genre be considered jazz?
