Voice cast unknown
Country: USA
What it is: Spooky early 30s animation

When proprietor Krazy Kat goes to bed, the antiques in his shop come to life and have a party.

I don’t think I’ve covered much of Columbia’s cartoon output up to this point, but then, much of their work has been forgotten. However, this one is pretty good, and it plays up the spookiness of the situation, especially during the first half of this cartoon. We have singing and dancing inanimate objects, skeletons, cigar store Indians, pianos, grandfather clocks, etc. It’s creative and even a little offbeat. There’s no real plot; what happens is mostly there to flesh out the music and dancing. Still, this one is worth hunting up and being given a look.
