How does the soundtrack to Filmation’s seminal animated feature connect with Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack, Astro Boy, a Congo airline and a plate of bad shrimp?
Popeye and Olive Oyl take to the dance floor again in 1937’s Morning Noon and Night Club. However, the dance inspiration in this cartoon was rather different from the last outing.
Any resemblance this post and any real events is purely co-incidental. I thought it would be fun to think about the dream/goal films-to-find in a Amazing Race-type contest between die-hard Cartoon fans.
