Warren Foster wrote a lot of rhyming when it came to doing cartoons based around music. A big example is "Book Revue," where the final scene with the wolf going to jail had a rhyme scheme. And he was also the one responsible for "Three Little Bops" and the rhyming verse in "Coal Black and de Sebben...

Classical Themes Heard in Classic Cartoons

We've had an ongoing thread, for some time now, which attempts to index the popular songs that were used in the classic Warner Bros. cartoons. To the best of my knowledge there hasn't been one (recently, anyway) devoted to classical music themes. I got the idea from a recent post by Paulie J. Waddle...

No worries...

In fact, I think I'll go ahead and start one.

OMG... that does take me back! I suppose I should do some more searching on YouTube to see what other programs are floating around.

You know, it's strange... I was thinking about Porky Pig just today, and about how, throughout his pen and ink "career", the staff at WB appear to have not really known what to do with him. In cartoons like Tashlin's "Wholly Smoke", Jones's "Old Glory", Clampett's "The Film Fan" and "Porky, and even...

I apologize for my most recent posts and have deleted them. In retrospect they were a bit too harsh. Sometimes I get overzealous... and can be too abrupt. I think perhaps the opening post to this thread could have been posed as an inquiry... something perhaps along the lines of: "Does anyone here kn...

This cartoon is somewhat like The Band Concert, only much less ambitious and much less focused. It can't decide whether the real focus is on the conductor or the antics in the audience. I agree... and I think, in that regard, that Lundy's "The Bandmaster" is the more successful of the two. Another ...

I clicked on the link and also pressed the "like" button... I must admit, however, to being dubious about whether the powers that be at WB will give any serious consideration to questions and suggestions that we post there

There's a gag by (I believe) Tedd Pierce that was used in "The Wind-blown Hare"... In that gag, Bugs is at the bottom of the basement steps and he turns off the lights every time the wolf tries descending the staircase; which causes the wolf to run back to the top of the stairs to switch the lights ...

In interviews, Joe Barbera reportedly said that the decision by MGM to close down the cartoon department was unexpected and a complete surprise. From his comments, one gets the impression that he and Bill Hanna had expected to continue making the T&J theatrical cartoons for many more years to come. ...
