The Jitterbug deleted scene from The Wizard of Oz.

The Jitterbug number took five weeks and tens and thousands of dollars to prepare, rehearse and film, and it was cut from The Wizard of Oz after the first preview.

The Jitterbug itself was envisioned as an animated pink and blue mosquito like creature who under direct orders from the wicked witch stings the principal characters and sends them into a jivy swing dance in the haunted forest.
