This soundie for the song "Who's Yehudi?" dates from circa 1942. This novelity song is based upon a running gag by Jerry Colona from Bob Hope's radio show. Colona would constantly look for a mythical and invisible figure named Yehudi. Yehudi soon became synonmous with anything hidden or invisible. There was even a Project Yehudi during WWII for the camoflauge of ships and airplanes.

Soundies can be considered the precursors to music videos. Produced during the years 1940 to 1946, soundies were made to be seen on self-contained, coin-operated, 16mm rear projection machines called Panorams located in nightclubs, bars, restaurants and other public places.
