"You know, cartoons last forever . . . "
9 June 2016 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . one of the ten interviewees (all male, like an American League MLB Baseball squad including a DH, though maybe at least one of them is trans-gendered--and, of course, perhaps "Joey Bats" plays T-Ball, too) says at the end of this seven-minute tribute to 1940s swing composer Raymond Scott (whose "Powerhouse" riff famously underscores the conveyor-belt-running-amok with Daffy Duck and Porky Pig in the chaotic climax of BABY BOTTLENECK), TWILIGHT IN TUNES (an incongruous title, since there's no mention here of glittering vampires or sweaty werewolves in Fork). As the Romans observed, "Life is short, but the life of Looney Tunes animated shorts is long." John Williams, who scored JAWS, STAR WARS, and most every Steven Spielberg live-action feature film, pops up to testify that his father drummed for the Raymond Scott Quintet. From the sound of it here, Scott ranks right up there with such German composers as Wiggy Beethoven and Dick Wagner in terms of providing Looney Tuning Music Man Carl Stalling with the raw material of Cartoon Immortality.
