Betty Boop:-Snow White, featuring Cab Calloway 1933
In the number St James' Infirmary, Koko the Clown/the Ghost were really Cab Calloway. The animator, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_Crandall, used the tecnique called 'rotoscoping' to trace around film of Calloway, and synchronise the characters with Calloway's dance moves. By the way. If you think Michael Jackson invented the 'moonwalk', you might think differently in a couple of minutes.
