dinner music for a pack of hungry cannibals

there is a picture on the 'if charlie parker . . .' site of raymond scott, (he of the quirky music that was made famous by carl stallings in the looney tunes cartoons), and thought i'd toss out some of his tunes and stuff.

unless you have lived in a cave for the last 70 or so years you have no doubt heard his music, although never knew the man behind it. besides being the original composer of most of the memorable themes in the looney tunes, (and more recently used in 'ren and stimpy' and 'animaniacs'), he is thought to have been the inventor of 'electronica' music, he invented a number of electronic instruments and his influence on modern music is immeasurable.

and talking about cartoons, i have been trying to collect as many 'banned' cartoons as i can get, (just because they are banned). there are quite a lot of cartoons from the 30's and 40's that contain some reference to something that offended certain groups, like the blackface characters, the portrayal of the japanese during ww2, overt use of the swaztika and what not. i've gotten quite a few off of winmx, and i found a few dvds of some good ones too. but a.g. has one that is outrageous. i forget the name but i'll never forget the scene of all the frogs shooting up and gettin high, it is all very surreal and frightening. (i need to get him to send it to me).

here are some mp3s of inspired cartoon music:
dinner music for a pack of hungry cannibals
the toy trumpet
the penguin
buy raymond scott's music!
buy carl stalling's music!

and a few cartoons:
'jungle jitters' (banned) wmv file
'daffy the commando' (banned) wmv file
'falling hare' real stream
buy looney tunes on dvd!

and a really big thanks to mrono's minute who did a podcast featuring the wrecks . . .
way cool, we got a fan!

actually, the speedy stuff is available on the discs. . . it is just banned from t.v., the stuff i seek is the racier cartoons that'll never see the light of day legitimately. . . but if yer interested i'll send you some of the funnier ones thru, a very useful tool i might add . . .

I have the first Looney Tunes Collection on DVD, I'm a huge fan! You're right, the music is incredible, yet most don't pay much attention to it.

It kills me how F@$king sensitive everyone is, where we can't even watch a Speedy Gonzalez cartoon! Has Everyone gone out of their Gourds?
