On November 15, 1929, the Mickey Mouse short film Jungle Rhythm was released to theaters. It was directed by Walt Disney.

Mickey is playing an accordion on the back of an elephant, and the elephant skips about to the tune. A vulture also starts dancing to the song. Mickey soon slides off the elephant to hunt the vulture, but ends up caught between an angry bear and lion. A monkey starts playing a tune with the accordion, with help from a parrot, which causes Mickey, the lion, and the bear to dance. More animals join in with the song, to much applause from the rest of the jungle, and Mickey manages to use whatever he can find to turn into an instrument, including a tree branch, a jaguar cub, and some ostriches.
