1. Hi De Ho Brandie! Great article! A little known fact about the Fleisher’s Minnie is that my late grandfather, Cab Calloway, met the Fleishers in Florida to preview/approve the incredible cartoon walrus ghost dance. Granddad said he almost died laughing the first time he saw it, and absolutely loved the whole thing. However the local KKK somehow got wind of the visit by the famed Cab Calloway and burned a large cross on the lawn outside the preview that evening! Good thing they did not torch the film as well!!
