Many consider OFE to be one of the greatest cartoons ever made. Others say that sure, it's a good cartoon, but there were many other LT&MM films which were even better.
Here's your chance to weigh in on the subject: how would you rate "One Froggy Evening" and why?

The best cartoon? I don't know, but it's certainly one of the most memorable ever done by WB. Ranks right up there with the Bugs/Elmer "Barber of Seville" and "Opera" ("Kill the wabbit!") parodies.

You said it's impossible for M.J.F. to remember some of the songs because they were written after he was released. Isn't it possible, in theory at least, that M.J.F. was actually the original composer of these songs? Perhaps he performed them and people who were unable to sell him as an act (such as the the man in OFN) sold the songs instead.

OFE captures the human condition at its core- our sense of greed, the need for acceptance, the longing to perform, the will to exploit, the importance of timing in life and the timelessness all these things being repeated over and over again in different eras of history.

It's also brutally funny, adroitly animated and quintessetially American ode to vaudeville with a nod to European opera sprinkled in for good measure. Brilliant.

Hi,

I'm a big fan of Michigan J. Frog, and recently I've started to learn the harmonica. I'm trying to learn to play the Michigan Rag, but it's a bit tricky. If I could find a midi file version of this song it would help me greatly. I'm wondering if you or anyone on this site would know where I could downlown a midi file of The Michigan Rag. If you can help please get in touch with me via my email adress.

Thanks,


Michael

Chuck Jones, in an interview he gave on television one time, talked about his "One Froggy Evening."  He mentioned that in a course on "American Humor," in some Arts/Humanity course, in (I've forgotten) some U.S. University, the instructor, on the first day of class, ran "One Froggy Evening" for the new class. Why he did so, Jones explained, was to see whether students would be wasting they're time with this course.  If students didn't find anything funny about this classic of WB Cartoons....the course was, definitely, not for them.  Without a doubt, "One Froggy Evening" is THE classic WB Cartoon. I never fail to die laughing, EVERY TIME I see it.  I can see why the professor used the 'toon as a way to "weed out" students to his class.  If you don't laugh (hysterically!) at THIS cartoon, there's no hope for you!   By the way, I heard Chuck did a SEQUEL to "One Froggy Evening".  Is that true, and if so, WHERE on Earth could I find a copy?  Anyone out there know?  Thanks.  GREAT, GREAT SITE!!!

One Froggy Evening was my VERY favorite cartoon when I was a kid.  I have fond memories of watching it on Saturday mornings on our tiny black and white TV.  Michigan J. Frog gave me my first exposure to Tin Pan Alley songs!

You can find the original One Froggy Evening as well as the sequel, Another Froggy Evening, on YouTube!!

An old boyfriend showed the cartoon to me for the first time. I am not sure how I feel about the old boyfriend now, but the cartoon -- amazing! It is universally funny. In a way, it is a comment on show business/ film business and creative process. The frog owner could be the producer, the frog - his idea... beer-loving audience and studio executives remain unchanged over time. The producer is obsessed with something that may or may not exist, with an idea, which only works when he is by himself. And so forth. It could be understood literally, too. But on every level, it is witty and funny and - timeless. Something comes out of unsuccessful romance!

I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR IT EVERYWHERE.

 THANK YOU,

I noticed that the song list didn't include "I Want to Play Things". The lyrics of one part are:

 "I'll give you candy and sweet things;

I'll put your hair in a curl.

So won't you come over to my house

and play like your my little girl."

 Would you happen to have the history of this song?

This cartoon has always been my favourite.  I have a version of the song on my computer, but can't attach it to this format.  

If you contact me directly by email I can attach it and send it to you.  I also wanted to turn it into a cell phone ring, but couldn't figure out how to do it.  If you manage to figure it out, please let me know how.

The cartoon was always one of my favourites.  Many years ago, when Time Magazine did a story on Chuck Jones, I sent him a letter.  He sent me back a pencil sketch of MJF which I still have.  I once showed it to Leon Redbone who subsequently got in touch with Chuck Jones directly.  A few years after that, Leon released his first album and guess who was on the cover?  Check it out.

Bill Roberts, the Warner Brothers contract singer who provided the voice of Michigan J. Frog, can be seen as the singing trapese artist in the short film "Let's Sing An Old Time Song" using this link...   http://www.doctormacro1.info/Film%20Clips/W/Warner%20Brothers%20Shorts/Warner%20Brothers%20Short%20-%20Let's%20Sing%20an%20Old%20Time%20Song.wmv

Great character... Great song.  Does anyone know where I can get an mp3 or similar digital audio copy of the song?  I would pay for it of course. 

Separately, I own the Looney Tunes Golden Collectin containing the cartoon "One Froggy Evening".  Anyone know of a software that would allow me to separate the audio and create my own mp3?

Thanks

I think that this cartoon/short film is simply memorable. It has what I think is an interesting storyline aswell.

Hi, A very informative site. Thanks.

With "nagur", is that the original published spelling, or did you adjust it a little due to web searches?

Cheers.

Travis, no one opens the cornerstone cap between the closing of it in 1892 and the demolition of the building, so how did M.J.F. get his original songs out?  I'm intrigued by the idea that he might have composed the songs, himself; sung them to people sitting alone and leaning against the side of the building; and those (latter) composers "wrote" their compositions using M.J.F.'s songs that were still stuck inside their heads.  But, personally, I see the whole purposeful anarchism pointing to the hoax aspect of "The Legend of Ol' Rip" from Eastland, TX, a real time capsule of his day.

nice site :-) in your largo-lyrics-site there is a little misspelling, the word "fumine" means to be "fulmine", lightning. thus it would be ready/quick as a lightning.
