CotD: Tex Avery was in rare form as the visuyal punster in 1951’s “Symphony In Slang”. Watch it today! http://www.bcdb.com/cartoon/2992-Symphony_In_Slang.htmlSymphony In Slang (1951) — MGM Theatrical Cartoon
A young man (a real swinging hep cat) goes to Heaven and steps before St. Peter. But his life story is so peppered with slang that neither St. Peter nor Noah Webster can understand him. What follows is a series of sight gags based on Webster’s literal interpretations of the slang terms (for example, when the guy says “I guess the cat had her tongue,” we see a cat sitting there, smiling a wicked smile, holding a tongue in his paw!).
