Ub Iwerks' Cartoon Mashup.

Glyph Jockey has an interesting music video mashup: Flip the Frog cartoon by UB Iwerks with Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor":

Ub Iwerks' "Fiddlesticks" is in the public domain. I am reading Neal Gabler's Disney biography - and it's amazing how all these early greats all knew each other back in Kansas City - Iwerks and Disney were partners, as were they with Harman and Ising. The organ player at the local theatre was Carl Stalling. Anyway I wanted to try this mashup, owing to the fact that early animation, by virtue of it sheer amazingness, had a lot of micro zen moments, where a character was merely bouncing up and down in place for instance, while music played. A cartoon like Fiddlesticks then lends itself to this type of project because of various animation "slugs" that can be cobbled together.

Plus, the song is awesome.
