Old Films and Stuff :

Sarina Garcia : Jesus the people that made Betty boop were so ahead of their time... The movement when the ghost is dancing is so smooth..

Thecommander248 : Someone pointed that the background follows the song and now I can't unsee it.

FaserTazer : I swear this animation is better than some of the cartoons today.

Dick Trickle : yeah i like ghostemane too

Love : How did you find this in such fantastic quality?

Vitor Fonseca : Lyrics of the song: Folks, I'm goin' down to St. James Infirmary, See my baby there; She's stretched out on a long, white table, She's so sweet, so cold, so fair. Let her go, let her go, God bless her, Wherever she may be, She will search this wide world over, But she'll never find another sweet man like me. Now, when I die, bury me in my straight-leg britches, Put on a box-back coat and a stetson hat, Put a twenty-dollar gold piece on my watch chain, So you can let all the boys know I died standing pat. An' give me six crap shooting pall bearers, Let a chorus girl sing me a song. Put a red hot jazz band at the top of my head So we can raise Hallelujah as we go along. Folks, now that you have heard my story, Say, boy, hand me another shot of that booze; If anyone should ask you, Tell 'em I've got those St. James Infirmary blues.


she doesn't even go here : I absolutely love his voice.

John Brice : This an example of the New York City animation style in the early 1930's. The NYC animation studios animators (most who were self-taught) used straight ahead animation. You started animating at the beginning of a scene and just kept adding drawings until the scene was finished. Disney animators (most of whom were graduates of art schools) planned their scenes ahead of time and the animator would only draw the key poses. Then an assistant would draw the in-between drawings. The advantages of the NYC method are that it produces wonderfully smooth animation. The disadvantages are that it is expensive, next to impossible to plan ahead of time, only one animator can do one scene, and the sound has to be added in post-production, not pre-production. This is why the Disney method is the one used by every studio today.

Hidden Vision : put a 20 dollar gold piece on my watch and chain so all the boys know i died standing pat he could of wrote this song today!

Ricky Wheeler : Just started playing Cuphead, and I gotta say the developers did an amazing job recreating this style of animation for the game.

Luis Gimon : This song has a double meaning: Its not just about a guy who misses his dead girl; it's about a girl who's dead to him. His funeral requests are how he wants her to talk about him "when he dead" to her.

Spaced out kid 1 : I love how fluid these animations are. Imagine how long it took back then.


Jack Kraken : The divorce from Popeye did not go well for olive.

TetrisClock : This is easily my favorite version of St. James Infirmary Blues.

Briana Martinez : This is low key really dark with a deeper meaning it’s not just a cartoon


hiimwinzy : Anyone else here from a minus8 animation?

meachy : There's going to be a generation of children that think this is a bonus stage to a video game.

Monochrome Fox : The quality of the rotoscoping on the dance sequence is absolutely incredible holy fuck

Carlton Buckle : It’s 2018 and this is still amazing. All I can say is bravo...bravo👏🏽

Paradox Messenger : The animation is super smooth, the song is catchy, and the jokes are funny *_HEAH BOEH, HAND ME OVER ANOTHA SHOT OF THAT BUOOOOOOOOOOOUZE_*

SUPER GAMER XD a.k.a Zabuza : That clown knows how to sing.

dotwavebeats : I just realized that when they’re in the cave the background goes along with the lyrics of the song

That one Deer : As much as I'm wanting to take 3D animation I love these old rubber hose drawn on pencil and paper animations. Which is why I'm taking up animation/art.
