the tune I'm talking about from Dr Jeckyll & Mr. Mouse is the fast paced chase score when Tom starts after Jerry and tries to get rid of him after jumping off the lump on his head (like the multiple suitcases up to locking the milk in the safe). The was reused in The Invisible Mouse with the golf cl...

Tom & Jerry is on CN right now, and I have to rewind the DVR cable box to Looney Tunes to reference Stalling's music right now. (Luckily the last two shown were Kiss Me Cat and Scaredy Cat,which are Stalling). I was always more into Tom & Jerry, and Bradley's music did always seem more interesting (...

Finnally figured out subtle differences in Scott Badley's music over the years

I always noticed the subtle changes in the backgroundmusic fromt he 40's to the 50's. The first things I had picked out. 40's , definite tunes played throughout whole scenes (which often tended to be faster paced, but even when slower paced, the music was more continuous). 50's , tunes used in much ...

Yes, that does make sense. The last years at MGM seem to foreshadow the look of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the early sixties. Obviously one reason is the hiring of Ed Benedict as designer and layoutman at both companies. The influence of modern graphics ala UPA is another reason. The cartoons be...

They just played that last half-hour last week, and it seems like almost every other week (when I'm off on Monday and Tuesday) that they play the same ones. (Bully For Bugs, What's Opera Doc, Bird in a Bonnet. I watch only the second half, because I watch the news at 12. Yesterday, the last one was ...

That's the same cat used in "It's Hummertime", it's followup, "Early To Bet", and in one Foghorn Leghorn film. It was just a generic McKimson cat (like the bulldog who starred with him, and with others), until McKimson focused more on the similar Sylvester in the Hippety/Junior and Speedy series.

A load of Grade-A crap. Sylvester was a character played by Mel Blanc on The Judy Canova Show. He used the same voice as the later Warners cat. Here's an episode from Aug. 24, 1943. Cue in about 5 1/2 minutes in and listen for yourself. http://www.otr.net/r/jdyc/1.ram "Beats me where they get this ...

I always see this one as the Sylvester entry in the "Wentworth" series, beginning with His Bitter Half (Daffy) and redone in Honey's Money (Yosemite Sam). Yet instead of a tough female making him take care of her son when he marries her for money; it's the dogs. Yet it uses many of the same gags, su...
