Doodle Bug - Manic Monday
Linda of Are We There Yet has Amanda and I have Chris. Chris will be handling all the doodling duties this week in the person of Doodlechris bugging out on many adventures. The first of which seems to involve becoming a male black widow. He probably hasn't considered that the life expectancy of a male black widow is what gave the species its name.
Now when I think of bugs, you know it has to have something to do with a book, a movie, a piece of music, or dancers. Well how about all four at once? This scene was cut from The Wizard of Oz after the first premier due to the length. That was probably a good idea as the dance is almost synonymous with the time period which would have dated the movie and could have prevented it from becoming a classic. Only this old kinescope remains. Shot from the point of view of the cameraman here are Dorothy, The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion being terrified of "The Jitterbug"
