What it is: Musical cartoon
Ghosts at a convention decide to update their shtick by learning to swing.
Here’s another Walter Lantz cartoon, and like yesterday’s, it probably wouldn’t get shown on TV because of a few stereotypes in the character designs. There’s no real plot to this one; it’s mostly ghosts boogieing to the title song. They also listen to the band “Spook Jones and his Creepy Crooners”, but beyond the name, there’s no real resemblance to Spike Jones and his City Slickers other than the fact they play jazz. The music is catchy and the animation is very well done. All in all, this one is quite entertaining.
