Performing intermediality in the early sound era, the blackface minstrels Moran and Mack circulated between the stage, radio and the screen (and between live and animated cinema) as the vestiges of the minstrel show and vaudeville stage were subsumed into newer forms of mass entertainment.

At the same time, as blackface minstrelsy's popularity faded and its markers became increasingly vestigial, representations of black culture in cartoons became more explicitly racist, especially in cartoons that celebrated jazz.
