Here’s “Tuxedo Junction” by The Manhattan Transfer.
It was originally done by Glenn Miller in 1940, but I decided to go with a vocal version.
I think I’ve worn an actual tuxedo twice in my life. I have worn dinner jackets (to my graduation, because the New Trier School District decided to humiliate us once more before letting us go, and the other to a prom that I’d rather forget), and wore a morning suit to my wedding, but only a tuxedo twice. Even that was too much. Really, they’re uncomfortable, and I look like a penguin.
A black cat with any white on it is considered a tuxedo cat, which would make almost every black cat we have owned a tuxedo.
We’ve only ever had one totally black cat, Sherman, who was a Siamese mix. We named him Sherman after General Sherman, because he marched around like a little general.
One of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid was Tennessee Tuxedo.
There was some pretty high-powered talent behind this one: Don Adams (“Get Smart”) was the voice of Tennessee, veteran voice actor Bradley Bolke as his sidekick, a walrus named Chumley, and Larry Storch (“F Troop”) as Phineas J. Whoopee, a typical “man with all the answers.” It was actually a pretty educational show. I’ll leave it up to you to read the summary, or watch an example…
