Origins of the Moonwalk

I don’t care if Michael Jackson invented the moonwalk or anything, his performances were incredible and he was an original. However, there is no doubt he was standing on the shoulders of other fine dancers like Fred Astaire, Bill Bailey, Cab Calloway, and Sammy Davis Jr., among many others. This video is a great compilation of some incredible dancing and Michael Jackson will no doubt be included in some future version of this.
