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
