This Roaring 1920s Re-do comes straight out of the 1950s and is the kitschy mish-mosh you'd expect from a made in Japan piece.

A mix of what the kids were saying back in the 20s ("23 skidoo," "Hotcha." and "Vo-do-dee-o-do") and what the kids were wearing in the 50s, along with some liberal Japanese interpretations. (Oh, and a dose of what mom's waxed romantically nostalgic over too -- the music box plays "Beautiful Dreamer.")
