This was the first Inspector short to use music by Walter Greene. Greene was actually only at the studio for a short time, but all subsequent Panther and Inspector shorts used the canned Greene music that got reused over and over. The studio's music editor was Joe Siracusa, who chose which track to use in each cartoons.

And yes, that's Paul Frees voicing the short sailor dude.

Nice to know Siracusa was imaginative.... There was more than just Greene's score for "Rock-a-Bye Pinky", after all. Why did Greene leave DFE out of curiosity? I'm guessing it was because Lantz needed him badly since his only other music score composer, Clarence Wheeler, died in late 1966 and Lantz had no other choice but to hire him back. Is this probably the most accurate presumption? In any case, I still think DFE could have hired another composer to the studio (Doug Goodwin, a year earlier, for instance) to compose for the newer Panther and Inspector shorts rather than just keep re-looping the Greene-scored soundtracks (again, primarily the "Rock-a-Bye Pinky" one for the Panthers) over and over again.

No idea why Greene left. But I'll go with the theory that Lantz gave him a better offer or something.

A re-enactment of the "Girls/Boys of Rock N Roll" sequence from the movie "The Chipmunk Adventure".

I like how at 1:57 the two guys playing Simon and Theodore swap places between shots. Which is exactly what happens in the movie during that point in the song because of an animation goof. Now, that's attention to detail!

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)

Dudley The Dinosaur's Dental Films

Postby Studio Toledo » Sat Apr 30, 2011 8:28 pm

People here might remember the familiar dental PSA's starring this little guy for many years but did you know they made longer films too, I sure didn't. Enjoy some of these Jon McClenahan-produced gems I just noticed on YouTube!

Dudley Visits The Dentist (1990)
Dudley's Classroom Adventure (1991)
Brushing Magic with Dudley & Dee-Dee
Dudley Goes To Camp (2004)

Some random PSA's to finish off this!

I remember those PSA. By the way, I noticed the early ones were done by a studio called StarToons. Didn't that studio do some episodes of "Tiny Toons"?
