Western Animation: I Love to Singa

I Love To Singa was an extremely popular Merrie Melodies short directed by Tex Avery (or, as he is still credited here, "Fred Avery," with his animators, "Charles Jones" and Virgil Ross) that premiered on July 18, 1936. The cartoon, designed to feature the eponymous tune by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg, has a plot mirroring that of Al Jolson's most famous film, The Jazz Singer; uncoincidentally, Jolson (with Cab Calloway) had introduced the song in a 1936 Warner Bros. feature, The Singing Kid.

This short was also a runner-up on The 50 Greatest Cartoons list. It has also made it onto The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes list.
