Fifteen Minutes of Fame, Minus Nine

According to this listing at the toonopedia, Michigan J. Frog may be the only animated character to enjoy lasting fame, with only a six-minute cartoon to its credit.

I just learned that The Michigan Rag, performed by Michigan J. Frog, was written by Michael Maltese (the writer of the cartoon.) A very belated bravo. The song sounds as authentic as Hello, Ma Baby, another tune in the frog's repetoire.
