Synopsis

While Oswald is at the dentist getting his teeth pulled, he hears over the radio that Old King Cole has the blues, so the rabbit goes out and recruits a lot of Hollywood celebrities who play music. Unfortunately, the king's jester isn't too happy about this, so during a hectic pie fight, he takes the rabbit down to his dungeon to have him hung. At this point, it is revealed that the whole thing was a dream.
