Michigan J. Frog in a top hat

A still image of Michigan J. Frog, the singing and dancing star of the 1955 Warner Brothers cartoon One Froggy Evening. In the absurdist cartoon, a construction worker discovers a singing frog inside of a time capsule -- only to be frustrated when the frog won't sing for anyone else. The frog is unnamed in the cartoon, but was given the name Michigan J. Frog by animation director Chuck Jones.
