Jacques Offenbach was one of the originators of Operetta in 19th Century France. One of his most famous being,"Orpheus In The Underworld" which included the famous Can Can theme.Operetta's were Musical entertainment's which generally did not pertain to very important subject material.Spoken dialogue,dancing,practical jokes and mistaken identities were the trademark of the Operetta form.These were a precursor of the modern musical comedy.Sounds a little like Cartoons,doesn't it?

The mid Century was also the Golden Age of Looney Tunes.Offenbach's music,along with other Classics were widely used in these Cartoons,and many of us were introduced to this form through these animated musical comedies.
