Comical Cover Versions Of The 1950s

This is a song I remember being tickled by on car trips when I was five, but it dates back to the middle of last century.  Covering Harry Belafonte's version of The Banana Boat Song, Stan Freberg introduces a live performace element to the song, the negotiations between an enthusiastic vocalist and his over-sensitive Beatnik bongo player.

The animation is also most charming.
