Cartoon Summary:


Betty is on an African safari, being carried by her pals Bimbo and Koko. When they stop to rest, Betty is captured by some cannibals. When Bimbo and Koko try to trace her captives by following their footprints, they become confused when the footprints suddenly reverse themselves, and they are captured themselves, ending up in a cooking pot. They escape, pursued by the huge head of one of the natives, which is singing the title tune. The head morphs into that of Louis Armstrong, who continues singing his celebrated hit. Koko is so scared that he outruns his clothes). In the meantime, Betty is tied to a post in the native village, but she and her pals escape, pursued by the natives, who are blown up as they run over the top of a volcano! Louis and his band appear live several times throughout the film as they continue to play on the soundtrack.
