Cartoon Summary:


Lazytown (population 123) is a sleepy Southern burg along the banks of the Mississippi that's home to some outrageously stereotyped blacks. Everyone is lazy here- even the fish! The all-black townspeople nap and attract flies. They fall asleep in the middle of fistfights, and the dogs don't have the energy to chase the cats. A riverboat pulls up at the dock, and a jazzy young lady from Harlem steps off. She starts looking around Lazytown. Needless to say, the men come to life. The sexy young lady teaches the locals about hot rhythm, singing the swinging title tune. The black mamas are scrubbing their kids, and they get into the swing of it. A washerwoman becomes confused when she hears the singer, and her scrubbing becomes frantic. A boy bites into a huge slice of watermelon. A number of musicians take up the melody, and an old man with a cane becomes activated by the music. Soon, everyone's moving to a Harlem boogie beat, dancing, scrubbing clothes and eating watermelon. The town has come to life, and swings so much that even the underwear climbs out of the washtub to dance. The ship's captain sounds the whistle and yells "All aboard!" to indicate that the ship is about to depart. The pretty lady gets back on the boat, leaving Lazytown a jumping place.

Its stereotypes detract little from the fact that this is a real fine cartoon musical--and that Walter Lantz was a top-notch director.

I used to work in Oakland, California. I have known many Black people and none of them acted like this. This is not a documentary - it is a cartoon and as such it is a lively one. The music is fabulous. I have it on film and have watched it for years - I...  (read more)
