Billie Bailey sings the title song soapily and Joe Reichman and his orchestra perform it in this slightly below par but still amusing Fleischer Screen Song.
In this one, the animated portion is a series of black-out gags set up as a newsreel, which was a prime way for the Fleischers and Termite Terrace to deal with random gag ideas that didn't quite fit into their story lines. Given the pacing of the individual sequences, there was plenty of time for me to see the capper gag of each sequence coming, even though, as usual, Dave Fleischer and his staff strewed plenty of smaller gags within each.
There's also a very brief appearance of Wiffle-Piffle, the Fleischers' answer to Schlesinger's Egghead, or perhaps George Rowe. Not that anyone was asking.
