The Spirit of the Frog
25 April 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

No, it's not Flip the Frog in an early Kung Fu cartoon. At this stage, few in America knew about jiu jitsu, let alone the Chinese martial arts. It's a boxing comedy. The IMDb credits it as being produced in two-strip Technicolor; the copy I looked at was black & white. However, the simplicity of the character design supports the color credit.

The cartoon is sustained by the tying of every action to the musical score. This was a technique musical director had perfected in silent days and he carried it into the sound era with Walt Disney. So strong is the association that a score in which every action is echoed by the music is referred to as "Mickey Mousing." Here, though, it works.
