Cartoon Synopsis:

Up in heaven (known as Pair-O-Dice), a disgusted St. Peter is worried about all the sin and partying that is taking place down in Harlem especially the fact that nightlife is attracting more business to "Hades Inc." than to his own place. He sends down a group of angels to lead souls onto the straight and narrow. After a Stepin Fetchit angel does little good in trying to keep Bojangles Robinson and a blackface Al Jolson out of a seedy nightclub, St. Peter decides to send down a group of more hep angels, including Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and the Mills Brothers, to steer people on the right path. In the end, Satan himself is allowed into heaven sporting a halo! An all-black musical cartoon with a very lively music score.
