The lore of ancient fable has no equal to the jolly Land of Jazz,
Which lay within a wild, discordant sea, across the way from long-hair Land of Symphony.
Yet here you'll find no mere Shakespearian sequel (though true folly still it has):
Our star-cross'd lovers bravely face adversity, and true love turns cacophony to harmony!
This Austin Chronicle piece makes an interesting point, making me wonder if perhaps there's a little bit more than my nostalgia-laden, 6-year-old-boy-on-Saturday-morning recollections at play in my attachment to this one.
"Music Land" features dancing ukuleles, bootlickin' music stands, and a metronome doing duty as a coxswain. It is the first glimpse, as well, of a critical aspect of animating inanimates: how to use an object's structural particulars -- the tuning peg on a cello, the mouthpiece on a saxophone -- to best effect.
To this day, the pitched (heh) battle between the two islands is one of my very favorite (animated) things. I still don't like jazz, though, so maybe it was not an unqualified success.
