    What a great, swingin’ little number, but . . . POOR little rabbit!


    • Marie,
      I know it isn’t the best Easter choice but I so love Cab Calloway and decided on rabbit as my theme today.

        Kat, it was the perfect choice! I thought it was very cute – besides, I’m convinced that that rabbit outwitted them anyway. Thanks to the exposure I’ve had to his music on your blog, I’m also becoming a fan of Cab Calloway.

      • Kat Says:

        There are so many great Cab Calloway songs. You’ll have great fun getting to know his music.

    P.S. Am I the only one to whom your players aren’t visible today? ;-( I tried Firefox, as well.


    • Kat Says:

      They aren’t visible to me on Safari, and they weren’t visible to sprite either. I did see them on Firefox so I figured it is a WordPress problem.

    I love this song. I have it on an album of Cab Calloway’s Greatest Hits. It’s there with all the Minnie the Moocher tunes and my all-time favorite, St James Infirmary Blues.

    • Kat Says:

      I have a whole file of St. James Infirmary songs with all their different titles, but I have to say Cab’s version is among my favorite.

        I first heard Cab Calloway’s version many years ago. It was in a Betty Boop cartoon. She was having a nightmare and Cab Calloway was the voice of Koko the Clown. He sang this song.
        Here it is, I think:

    I so loved this cartoon. It is so clever, and that music would have hooked me even then if I were young. Thanks for hunting it done. I haven’t ever seen it before this.
