The Fleischer Screen Songs cartoon, A Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight, is another one worth a look
Just watched this Max and Dave Fleischer Screen Songs cartoon on YouTube. According to one of the comment posts on the site, this was the first time an animator got credit, that person being Seymour Kneitel who would eventually marry the Fleischer sister, Ruth. Anyway, this one has humanized mice (shades of Mickey and Minnie!) drinking, playing instruments, and dancing up a storm. Quite a few risqué gags abound like the way the legs and skirt of one switches places with one with nothing on at all (don't worry, there's no anatomy involved in the drawings!). As usual, there's the "bouncing ball" jumping the lyrics before being replaced by the characters (with the animation being more creative here) and then one final gag. Another Fleischer cartoon worth seeing.
