Flip The Frog in “Fiddlesticks” (1930)

Last evening I was looking for something to watch on Netflix when I stumbled upon a wonderful collection of Ub Iwerk cartoons featuring Flip the Frog. One of the things I found very surprising was that the animated shorts music was composed by Carl Stalling, who would go on and create the classic music for the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts.
