Cartoon Production Information:
The Song Car-tunes were only three to four minutes in length. The sound versions consisted of stock animation footage of KoKo jumping out of the ink bottle and going to a black board, where he drew the KoKo Kwartet in chalk line. The Kwartet then became animated and entered a theater, where KoKo would appear at a lectern on stage, holding up a sign. The new footage for the individual cartoon would begin with a pun or description pertaining to the featured song. These cartoons then featured the song lyrics on the screen, highlighted with a bouncing white ball. In addition to the ball bouncing over the lyrics, the repeated chorus would have words animated, or characters would animate over the words as puns. Various Fleischer characters (such as KoKo the Clown or Fitz the Dog) would make an appearance.
