Armstrong, Louis

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on January 30, 2004

    Great jazz trumpeter/vocalist with distinctive, gravelly voice and infectious high spirits; loved by music fans around the world. He can be seen in Clean Pastures (Freleng, 1937) as one of the modern angels along with Cab Calloway, Jimmie Lunceford and Fats Waller. An Armstrong-like trumpeter can be seen sending a Waller-like cat “outta dis world” in Tin Pan Alley Cats (Clampett, 1943).
