Wackiki Wabbit

Oh, how I remember this cartoon from Saturday mornings.  I always liked the Polynesian-vibe drum solo that got our hapless castaways dancing.  From YouTube, here is the 1943 Warner Bros. animated short, Wackiki Wabbit.

Speaking of castaways, I'm going to get lost myself next week, so posts will be inactive until the week after, but I'll be back then.
