"Why is everybody afraid of me? I only wanted to be friendly..."
Today's 'toon: THE BANDMASTER (1930). Conductor Krazy leads his group through "Stars and Stripes Forever" and "Twelth Street Rag". Another example of Ben Harrison and Manny Gould's mastery of gags and synchronization; the Charles Mintz studio had been making sound cartoons for only about a year. Disney's films of the period are outdone in terms of speed and content.
