Strike Up The Band (1930) – Screen Songs Theatrical Cartoon Series

A boat sails the sea at night, with the moon watching from above. Bimbo-like sailors march around the deck, then fall through a trap door. They land at the mess table, with lots of other animal sailors, accompanied by the Sailor’s Hornpipe. A bouncing biscuit becomes the bouncing ball. First we hear “Jack Is The King Of The Dark Blue Sea,” then “Strike Up The Band.” Two dancing Bimbo-like sailors go underwater, where they see lots of mermaids. One sailor hangs out on a buoy, smooching with mermaids. Watch “Strike Up The Band” on video at Big Cartoon DataBase
