Description: Peppy dance band music; a newly-composed introduction to "You Bunch of Fun"
On-screen: Title and cast list on placards
Analysis: Rising melodic sequences and rising parallel ninth chords generate excitement; two principal motives are introduced: X = an upper neighbor tone gesture and Y = a descending third with a long-short-short rhythm
