Notes on “Another Froggy Evening”

LJC CJ JMCC

Taking a break from recording the soundtrack for Chuck Jones' 1996 short film, "Another Froggy Evening" are, from left, Linda Jones Clough (producer,) Chuck Jones (director & producer,) with actor, Jeff McCarthy.   "Another Froggy Evening" saw the return of Jones's mythic character, Michigan J. Frog as he traveled through the ages.  

"The person who is missing from this photo is George Daugherty [Who, along with Cameron Patrick, provided the original music score & the arrangements for "Another Froggy Evening". –ed.]   George and I auditioned about twenty singers for the part and Jeff was the only one who came close and he came so close we felt he was channeling the original, unnamed, baritone who voiced Michigan in the original film.  Jeff brought the warmth, enthusiasm, and exactly the right “note” to the job…  Jeff is one of the truly “good” guys and remains a good friend to this day," said Linda Jones Clough in a recent email exchange with Chuck Redux.  Click here to learn more about Jeff McCarthy.
