“Hop in the old jalop and head for the malted shop and all the cats join in.”

On April 23, 1954, the special cartoon Two for the Record premiered in theaters. The special consisted of two segments from the 1946 package film Make Mine Music: “After You’ve Gone” and “All the Cats Join In.” Both segments heavily feature the work of Benny Goodman, bandleader and jazz musician: “After You’ve Gone” features the music of the Goodman Quartet, set to a scene of dancing instruments, while “All the Cats Join In” features Benny Goodman and his orchestra accompanying a living sketch of a dance party taking place at a nearby malt shop. Although this is one of many specials featuring the segments from Make Mine Music, the film has not been theatrically reissued in its entirety.
