About the singer from IMDB:
He is a jazz singer.
A CD collection "Schoolhouse Rock Rocks" featured cover versions of his compositions for the series. Artists include Moby, Better Than Ezra, Pavement, Man or Astro-man?, Skee-Lo, Biz Markie and Daniel Johnson.
Composed and performed a number of songs for the ABC TV eductational project "Schoolhouse Rock". This is a series of short films shown at the end of cartoon shows designed to teach various subjects (multiplication tables, US history, science, grammar, US government functions) in the form of animated films with memorable music and lyrics. The series of films is still remembered (fondly) by those who saw them the first time, and have been re-issued on DVD for new generations to learn and enjoy.
Played back-up (keyboards) for Miles Davis.
When performing in jazz clubs, he will often be questioned by someone who recognizes his voice from the cartoons. Many times, he'll use that opportunity to perform a song he wrote for the "Schoolhouse Rock" series.
He was concerned that the line "I get my thing in action" from his song "Verb" would run foul of network censors. It didn't.
4th cousin twice removed of Backstreet Boy Howie D. Their common ancestor is James L. Dorough 1736-1813.

Lucky Seven Sampson is nothing but a crook and a swindler, and I will not be happy if he comes round again.

I have watched this many times, so thanks for submitting it.
I also just noticed that he throws the brother a slice of gum. So he's not a crook, he's just a cool dude.
