And The Winner Of The "1920's Cartoon With The Most Incongruous Soundtrack" Award Is. . .
NO CONTEST - and with the full understanding that there must be an Otto Messmer cartoon titled Felix Leaves This Earthy Dimension And Transforms Into An Alien Single-Cell Lifeform, inevitably backed by cheesy background music, this distinction goes to the following transfer of the phantasmagorical Fleischer Studio masterpiece Koko's Earth Control.
The jauntier, happier and peppier the generic "Movie Wonderland" track gets, the weirder, farther out and more apocalyptic this cartoon goes.
