Recycling much of the surrealist imagery from Porky in Wackyland, Tin Pan Alley Cats has a Fats Waller-esque cat playing Nagasaki (Warren/Dixon 1928) on piano, animating the bar into hysterics and propelling him out of this world and into the landscape of "darkest Africa". 

A popular "exotic" song that became a Tin Pan Alley hit, Nagasaki also appears in Clean Pastures as played in Harlem and associated with African-American jazz bars.

Through sound and visuals, the colour line regulated the spatial representation of bodies, in both the real and the two-dimensional, drawn world.
