Jango's Dance Carnival is an animated short coupled with the Toei anime's second movie, Clockwork Island Adventure. It mainly serves as a showcase for the song "Ready!" by Folder 5 (who had previously performed "Believe" for the anime's second opening).

Like the anime's other theatrical shorts, it (possibly due to issues over music rights) has not been given an official release anywhere outside of Japan.

Summary

Threadbare and starving, Jango seeks refuge on Mirror Ball Island, famed for hosting the largest dance festival in the East Blue. Finding the island's "beat" too much to resist, he soon makes a spectacle of himself at a local bar, causing a squadron of Marines to give chase.

By chance, the pursuit collides with another group of (in)famous visitors: the Straw Hat Pirates. Despite their best efforts, Luffy is soon spotted, forcing the whole crew to flee as well. While they divert a fraction of the Marines, Jango desperately scales one of the island's dance platforms and, flashing his hypnotic ring against the giant disco ball hanging overhead, orders everyone to dance.

Augmented by the disco ball, Jango's hypnosis seizes everyone - the Marines, the Straw Hats, hundreds of civilians, and even Jango himself. Together, they dance the night away, their synchronized steps eventually tearing the whole island apart.

Some time later, the hypnosis wears off, and the exhausted Straw Hats manage to escape on the Going Merry. To their dismay, however, they realize Luffy has been left behind, still dancing on the remnants of the disco ball with an equally carefree (and apparently still-hypnotized) Jango.
