Song
I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you! von Louis Armstrong 1932 im Betty Boop Cartoon:

I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you!
Oh, you rascal, you!
Boy, I brought you into my home;
You wouldn't leave my wife alone;
I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you.

Now, I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you!
I'll be tickled to death when you leave this earth, you dog!
Hmmm, I took you for my friend,
The way you bit me in the back was a sin;
You ain't no good, you rascal, you!

As I said before,
I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you! Hmm, yea-ee-yea, you rascal, you!
Boy, when you're laying six feet deep,
No more fried chicken will you eat;
Aw, you dog, I know that'll break your heart, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Boy! Boy, what is it that you've got
That makes my wife think you're hot?
Oh, you dog, you ain't no good. Naw!

You bought my wife a bottle of Coca Cola,
So you could play on her victrola;
Ha, you dog! Yes, sir!

I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal, you! zählte zum Standardrepertoire von Louis Armstrong. Es gibt zahlreiche Aufnahmen, sowohl von Armstrong als auch von anderen Künstlern, z.B. Mills Brothers, Louis Prima, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Louis Armstrong Louis PrimaWeitere Textversionen.

Betty Boop Cartoons
Betty Boop begann Anfang 1930 als Hundefigur in einer von Dave und Max Fleischer produzierten Cartoonserie. Bald wurde sie populär und wandelte sich in eine nette und sexy Frau. Ihr Körper glich dem des Filmstars Mae West. Die Betty Boop Rolle wurde gesprochen von Mae Questal. Über hundert Betty Boop Cartoons wurden bis 1939 produziert.
Dabei traten oft musikalische Gäste auf: Louis Armstrong "I'll be glad when you're Dead, You Rascal You" (1932), Cab Calloway "Minnie the Moocher" (1932) und "Saint James Infirmary Blues" in "Snow White" (1933), Don Redman "Chant of The Weed". Betty selbst sang z.B. "You're Driving Me Crazy" in "Silly Scandals" (1931). Betty Boops letzter Cartoon war "Yip Yip Yippy" (1939).
