Trivia

The singing voice of the frog is provided by Bill Roberts, a popular Hollywood nightclub singer of the 1950s. Many sources erroneously credit Terence Monk with supplying the singing voice of the frog. This error appears to be rooted in an interview in which Chuck Jones identified him as such. However, he was not the baritone heard in the film. The confusion may have been caused by the fact that Jones did use Monck in "The Cat Above and the Mouse Below", where he sang "Largo al factotum" (from Rossini's "Il barbiere di Siviglia"/"The Barber of Seville").

Goofs

When the owner of the frog gets thrown out of the talent agency, there's a hand-print on the wall to the side of the door he is thrown from. In the next shot it's gone. See more »

Quotes

Michigan J. Frog: [singing] Hello, my baby / hello, my honey / hello, my ragtime gal. / Send me a kiss by wire / baby, my hearts on fire / if you refuse me / honey, you'll lose me / then you'll be left alone / Oh baby, telephone and tell me I'm your own.

Chuck's masterpiece
31 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone knows what happens in the excellent animated masterpiece. A guy finds a dancing, singing frog whom will only dance or sing for him and it drives him crazy. This is the best Chuck Jones short ever (no easy feat), and will be with else to entertain countless generations of the young and young at heart. Many attempts to duplicate this has but done throughout the intervening years, but accept no substitutes. This is fantastic stuff. This animated short can be seen on Disc 4 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2. It features a commentary by Micheal Barrier, as well as an optional music only track.

My Grade:A+
