Cartoon Production Information:

Vocal Chorus "Saint James Infirmary Blues" sung by Cab Calloway (as Koko), a cute song about identifying the body of a dead, cocaine-addicted prostitute in the morgue. Strong stuff for the thirties. The scene was rotoscoped to Cab's dancing, while eerie scenes pass by in the background. This cartoon remains unsurpassed in its Dali-esque imagery, and literally must be seen to be believed.

The only recording of Cab Calloway and his Orchestra performing "Stoppin' the Traffic" may be in this cartoon.

In 1994, Snow-White was one of 25 films added by the Library of Congress' National Film Preservation Board to the National Film Registry.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

This is probably one of the most astonishing cartoons on all history. The beginning and the end are typical of the animation of the time, with the wacky touch of the cartoons of the period, but the scene where Koko the clown is transformed into a ghost by...  (read more)
