Wake Up the Gypsy in Me

From Loonipedia

Wake Up the Gypsy in Me was a 1933 black-and-white Merrie Melodies cartoon short, based on the title song written by Lew Lehr, Harry Miller and Lew Pollack and directed by Rudolf Ising. The plot concerns a village of Russian Gypsies, led by a caricature of jazz bandleader Paul Whiteman, generally singing, dancing and whooping it up, when the mad monk Rice-Puddin' (a caricature of Grigori Rasputin) casts his eye on one of the apparently underage girls in the village and has her abducted in an attempt to force himself upon her. The villagers revolt and rescue the girl and give Rice-Puddin' just due.thumb|300px|right
