One Froggy Evening
is an approximately seven-minute long Technicolor animated short film
written by Michael Maltese and directed by Chuck Jones. The short was
released on December 31, 1955 as part of Warner Brothers' Merrie
Melodies series of cartoons. Some critics and observers regard this
cartoon short as the finest ever made. Steven Spielberg, in the PBS
Chuck Jones biography Extremes & Inbetweens: A Life In Animation,
called One Froggy Evening "the Citizen Kane of animated film."Synopsis A
mid-1950s construction worker involved in the demolition of an 1892
building finds a box inside a cornerstone. He opens it to reveal a
(seemingly immortal) singing, dancing frog, complete with top hat and
cane. The box also contains a deed dated April 16th, 1892. The man
tries exploiting the frog's talents for money, but as it turns out, it
will not perform in front of anyone else. For the rest of the cartoon,
the man frantically tries to demonstrate the frog's abilities to the
outside world (first by trying to get an agent to accept him, then by
renting out a theater), all to no avail. Eventually he is homeless
(after spending all his money renting the theater) and living on a park
bench, where the frog still performs for him. A policeman overhears
this and approaches the man, but after seeing him accuse the frog of
the singing, he has the man committed to an asylum. Following his
release, the haggard man dejectedly hides the box in the Tregoweth
Brown building that is under construction. The timeline then jumps to
the year 2056 (100 years and at least 1 day after the cartoon's debut),
where the building is demolished by futuristic ray guns, and the box
with the frog is discovered yet again by a 21st century demolition man,
starting the process all over.
