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. Written by

Did You Know?
The retrospectively-given name of Michigan J. Frog is derived from the one song he sings in this cartoon that Chuck Jones
and Michael Maltese
wrote especially for him, "The Michigan Rag". Jones came up with the middle initial after being interviewed by a writer named Jay Cox. See more
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
Michigan J. Frog
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.
Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone
