Singing cartoon giraffe from the 1961 Warner Bros. cartoon, Nelly's Folly. An African safari discovers her and brings her to America and fame. She rises to the top, only to fall back to the bottom over her scandalous affair with a married giraffe... I'm sorry, I can't believe I just wrote the phrase "scandalous affair with a married giraffe." So she goes back home to Africa. Gloria Wood was the speaking and singing voice of Nelly.
