I’m wrapping up the salute I started yesterday to the year’s most commercially successful film company with the flip side of the early Warner Brother fame. The same studio that was known for producing the most realistic and socially relevant entertainment was also the studio responsible for the funniest and, with all due respect to Walt Disney, the most on-the-money animations of the classic Hollywood era. Actually, there’s more than a little grit and grime in greatest of the WB cartoons and that’s probably one reason they’ve held up so beautifully over the decades.
It certainly doesn’t get any better than Chuck Jones’ “One Froggy Evening.” The guy at YouTube calls this a “work of art” and I cannot disagree.
Michigan J. Frog: show biz immortal.
