In addition, Tahslin's name occasionally appeared in different permutations on the title-cards to his black-and-white LT's; like "Tish-Tash" and "Frank Tash", to name just two...

What's not clear is why did "Uncle Solly" (presuming it's his house in which the story takes place) have all those potions down in his basement... and why was it even necessary for Lawyer Goodwill to change his appearance before trying to do the pigs in?

There's audio software that can remove most, if not all, of the vocals from a song; although I couldn't say for certain which one, specifically. A user on YouTube has a number of pop-songs that have been processed fairly successfully in such a manner.

Another example would be Bugs Bunny continuing to go after the female rabbit robot with the closing line "So it's mechanical..." (I forget the cartoon's title.) In "Hair-Raising Hare" the Peter Lorre "mad scientist" character uses said robot to lure Bugs into his castle of horrors. I agree with wha...

I have wondered how the Danse Macabre rumor started? When you listen to that piece, it doesn't sound anything like what you hear in the cartoon. Also, I have heard the March piece as both Trolls and Dwarfs. (zug der zwerge and trolltog) I also read discussions about which is which so apparently the...

According to Jerry Beck's 50 Greatest Cartoons book, the xylophone scales Stalling used led many people (especially advertisers) to believe that. EDIT: The Blue Danube--- Runaway Blackie (Van Beuren) Also, the very title of the cartoon might suggest to those who don't know the piece that the music ...

Someone (from here, I believe) had made an admirable attempt to fix that awkward splice by inserting the missing passage from a faded-red NTA or UM&M 16mm print and then uploading it on YouTube.

Perpetuum Mobile is also heard in "Fifth Column Mouse"; in the scene where the mechanical dog chases the Axis cat.
