A spoof of Al Jolson's "The Jazz Singer", a strict piano teaching owl is cursed with a son who "loves to singa", but only jazz.
The main character's name, Owl Jolson, is a takeoff on Al Jolson, a popular singer who is famous for starring in the first ever "talking" movie, The Jazz Singer (1927), on which this film is loosely based.
Enough is too much! Out of my house, you hotcha! You crooner! You falsetto! You jazz singer! You... you... you...
In the beginning, the father's name is given as Prof. Fritz Owl, with Owl being the surname. When his son hands his card to the radio host, his name is listed as Owl Jolson, with Owl being the given name. (It's still a funny gag.)
