Spike Jones Does His Bit

I have a list of musicians I want to post things by and my latest pick was Spike Jones. I couldn't find a decent looking clip of any of Spike's best known songs but I found something I'd never seen before, a clip from some World War II-era feature of Spike and his boys doing a bit of operetta lampooning Mussolini and Hitler who was often derisively called "Schiklegruber", supposedly his real name. It's not the full band but it is fun.
