A Timeless Classic Cartoon Short!
16 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A VERY long time ago, I saw this short on television, and boy I thought that it was fabulous! I always have been an extremely huge fan of Looney Tunes ever since time began, and I knew that I was going to love this marvel from the very minute that I saw the title card. One reason why I love this so much is the fact that it marks the first appearance of one of my all time favorite Looney Tunes cartoon characters, that character is the singing frog, or should I say, Michigan J. Frog. Michigan J. Frog has always been a favorite of mine, he always has been and he always will be! This cartoon short is also one of my favorite Looney Tunes cartoon shorts, along with Duck Amuck and What's Opera Doc?

It is no surprise to me that this short would be selected for preservation in The National Film Registry, because I thought that this really deserved it! This ranks as one of the greatest cartoon shorts of all time, especially among my scale! This scores a perfect score of ten stars out of ten for being a Looney Tunes short film that is hysterical, inspirational, and timeless! I am really glad that I watched this, because it has changed my cartoon education forever!

So in short, if you are looking for a very fabulous and inspirational Looney Tunes cartoon short to watch, then you should watch this one, because it really is very fabulous and inspirational! This is something that is never going to lose what it has as it grows older, and I am really thankful for that!

10/10
