Did You Know?

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 »
Continuity: 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 »
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.See more »

Chuck's masterpiece, 31 October 2005
Author: movieman_kev from United States

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+
