The Interview - Oscar Shorty Petterstein


About The Video

This is a hysterical San Francisco cartoon by Ernest Pintoff of a straight announcer interviewing cook jazzman Oscar Shorty Petterstein. Henry Jacobs and Woodrow Leafer are the voices. The animated body language of the jazz musician in priceless. The audio for this appeared on the Lenny Bruce album Interviews Of Our Time.

Customer Comments

Yeah baby, I dig it. That cat is cool. Actually he's unusually articulate and loquacious compared with some of the jazzers I've met!

No, not S.F. - New York, Pintoff in the East 50's. Vinnie Bell is still animating as I write (2/28/11).
