The esteemed Tom Sito regales us:
Dec 31, 1955 - Chuck Jone's 'One Froggy Evening' premieres.
Director Steven Spielberg called it the "Citizen Kane of Cartoons." If you wonder why you never heard the old time ditty 'The Michigan Rag' anywhere else but here, was because Chuck Jones & Mike Maltese wrote it specifically for the cartoon. For years no one was sure who the singing voice was. Its been suggested he was a local night club baritone named Bill Roberts.
