Hi John,

I too have often wondered (and researched without much success) the music
backgrounds to both Betty Boop and Tom & Jerry cartoons. Can't help much with
this enquiry. I know Cab Calloway did some of the BB soundtracks, tho'
listening to the soundbite I have of "House Cleaning Blues" it doesn't sound
much like Cab's lot.

Perhaps a mail to the Betty Boop Fan Club may get you an answer. Google will
get you a link to this and many other BB sites.

        Suffolk, England.
