Inka Dinka Doo
The song debuted in the 1934 movie Palooka, a film about the comics character Joe Palooka. By 1934, Durante's recording of the song was a major hit record, and it became Durante's theme song for the rest of his life. When he performed it on his radio and television programs, Durante would frequently interrupt it with the line "STOP da music, everybody!" He performed it again in the 1944 film Two Girls and a Sailor, which starred Van Johnson, June Allyson and Gloria DeHaven.
