Production Notes:

An updated version of "Robinson Crusoe," with Robinson sounding like Jack Benny and Friday (called "Winchester") sounding like Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. Fred Allen (with whom Benny had a big feud on the radio) is also impersonated as the Cannibal Chief. At one point, Crusoe is trying to figure out why the chief sounds so familiar, and he says: "Naaa... he could never get that tan." There's even time to work in crazy Jerry Colonna as crazy native.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Alternate Title: "It Happened To Caruso."
