High Note

Despite being a rather late entry into the Looney Tunes cat­a­logue raisonné, High Note does hit a rather, uhm, High Note in the oeu­vre. In addi­tion to be one of those car­toons that cat catch and holds one’s inter­est for seven min­utes with­out a word of dia­logue (or per­haps because of the fact), this short was an Acad­emy Award Nom­i­nee for Best Short Sub­ject in 1961.

Set on a piece of sheet music, musi­cal notes arrange to per­form “The Blue Danube,” but are thwarted by one pix­i­lated note who’s been vis­it­ing the “Lit­tle Brown Jug.”

It is films like this that really show Chuck Jones’ comic genius, and his incred­i­ble sense of tim­ing and space. If you have not seen this one, or not seen it in a while, the fifty-first anniver­sary of it’s orig­i­nal release is a GREAT time for you to watch it again… at Big Car­toon DataBase!
