Froggie the limberjack dancing to Do Mr. Boker Do, on banjo
This is Froggie the limberjack (also known as a jig doll). Froggie used to be plain unfinished wood, but I painted him to give him more personality. I imagine he is now fit to go courtin' Miss Mousie. Children love how Froggie's googly eyes spin round and round! Here I make him dance to an old minstrel song that I'm playing on my banjo, called Do Mr. Boker Do. I got the song directly from Phil Rice's banjo tutor book of 1858, playing it here as an instrumental. There are few things in music more fun than a dancing limber jack!
