Much Joy From A Small Bear, 28 November 2001
Author: Ron Oliver (revilorest@juno.com) from Forest Ranch, CA

An inquisitive young bear wanders into the hills where he chances upon a splendid musical performance staged only once every couple of hundred years - by frogs.

RUPERT AND THE FROG SONG is an utterly charming little film which should not fail to delight the most jaded viewer. Beginning subtly, it moves toward a dramatic climax during the Frog Song - exuberantly achieving its emotional apex with kaleidoscopic color & lilting sound.

Rupert was created by artist Mary Tourtel in 1920 and he has won generations of fans who eagerly follow his continuing adventures in the Daily Express newspaper. Since his inception, Rupert has personified the gentle joys & sweet innocence of childhood. It is precisely these qualities which this film so perfectly grasps.

Sir Paul McCartney took on the project of creating RUPERT AND THE FROG SONG as a true labor of love. Not only did he co-author the storyline and executive co-produce (sharing both duties with wife Linda), Sir Paul also wrote & composed the very cheerful song 'We All Stand Together,' performed several of the speaking voices and arranged the music with Sir George Martin. The result for this small gem was a much deserved British Academy Award.

Singing voices for the frog chorus were supplied by The St. Paul's Choir & The King's Singers.
