Though he’s probably best known as one of the creators of Mr. Magoo, animator and jazzbo John Hubley should be better known for the work produced through his Storyboard production company, which frequently blended jazz with inventive animated images. This 1956 short, Date With Dizzy, shows Dizzy Gillespie being cajoled to come up with music for some television commercials. Not only do you get to see three of Hubley’s TV spots, you get some real live Dizzy Gillespie music in the mix as well.
