Storyline

A workman finds a singing frog in the cornerstone of an old building being demolished. But when he tries to cash in on his discovery, he finds the frog will sing only for him, and just croak for the talent agent and the audience in the theater he's spent his life savings on.

Trivia

Printed on the newspaper on the bench in the park, where Michigan J Frog sings later on in the cartoon, we see the headline: "Lionel Barrymore heiress." Lionel Barrymore was a famous American actor who had died just over a year before this cartoon was released on the 31st December 1955, so this could be a reference to his death. See more »

Goofs

When the construction worker is imitating the frog in the talent agency, he's initially holding his hat, then throws his hands up in the air. When his hands come back down, his hat has disappeared. 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.

One Froggy Evening has been censored
4 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The last two times I saw One Froggy Evening it was in a censored version. In the original, the guy rents a theatre to show the singing frog and peppers the building with posters but no-one comes. He puts out a "free admission" sign but still no-one comes. He then puts out a "free beer" sign and is trampled by the crowd that rushes in. In the censored version, the "free beer" sign is cut. This is not only a stupid thing to do in itself; it also makes no sense since there is no reason why crowds would rush in so enthusiastically to see the singing frog if the only attraction was free admission. The whole point is that no-one believes in the singing frog. Who has committed this stupid act of vandalism and why -- and can we do anything about it?
