I have to recommend http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-arBMWSD9s the Betty Boop Snow White cartoon. It Cab Calloway singing St. James Infirmary Blues, the song from which Minnie the Moocher get's it's tune. The whole cartoon is great, but the musical segment alone makes this probably the best cartoon ever made. Koko the clown is rotoscoped, which is when they film an actor, then trace the cartoon character over the top for exactly matching movement.Hard to imagine the crazy stuff in this cartoon showing in a theater in 1933, not to mention music by an all-Black jazz band. There's a really good one with Louis Armstrong, too.
