Cartoon Production Information:


With Louis Armstrong.

Contains some of the earliest live footage of Louis Armstrong. At the beginning, we see Louis Armstrong performing "The High Society Rag" with about ten other musicians. "The High Society Rag" continues without a break as the animation begins. Armstrong also appears in animated form.

Song "(I'll Be Glad When You're Dead) You Rascal You," Written by Sam Theard, Performed by Louis Armstrong and his Orchestra.

This cartoon is not shown on American television due to perceived racial stereotypes.

A speedometer on Koko eventually reads "Kosher" in Hebrew as he accelerates.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
