According to Don Tyler in American Popular Music of the Pre-Rock Era
, "When The Red, Red Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along" written by Harry Woods was first introduced by Sophie Tucker but was popularized by Al Jolson, and featured in the 1949 film Jolson Sings Again
, and in the 1994 film Bullets Over Broadway
In 1953, Doris Day had a top thirty hit with it. Her version is probably the best rendition of this feel good song, even though Jolson's version reached #1 on the Billboard Chart of the day.
