One Froggy Evening My choice for the best Warner Bros. cartoon ever made: One Froggy Evening (1955). It's the story of greed, disappointment, a shattered life--and the devious singing frog responsible for it all.

Our Gang - Janet Burston The final leading lady of the Our Gang comedies was Janet Burston. She joined the troupe in 1940 as a five-year-old during the MGM era and stayed until the series meekly ran its course in 1944. After Darla Hood left in 1942, Burston became the Gang's female lead by default. She is pictured here in a scene circa 1942. Note that Spanky McFarland is still part of the Gang, as is Billie (Buckwheat) Thomas. That's young Robert Blake (who acted under the name of Mickey Gubitosi) on Burston's right. In the final movies of the series, Janet was the romantic interest of Froggy Laughlin (standing between Spanky and Buckwheat). Fans of the series often criticize Burston for her over-the-top acting. "Oh, I was a ham!" she said in an interview late in her life. "But that's the way they wanted it--the hammier, the better!" Burston didn't have much of a film career after her Our Gang days ended. Married four times, she died of cancer in 1998 at the age of 63.

Froggy - Our Gang Billy (Froggy) Laughlin was added to the Our Gang cast in 1940 after an MGM executive heard him do a Popeye imitation at a movie theater. From 1940 through the end of the series in 1944 Laughlin played the cross-eyed, bespectacled Froggy, a character who spoke in a croaky voice. (Many Our Gang fans still mistakenly assume that was Laughlin's true voice!) Laughlin was tragically killed on August 31, 1948 in La Puente, CA. While delivering newspapers on a motor scooter with a friend, the pair made an unsafe U-turn and were struck by a truck whose driver had no time to react. Laughlin's friend suffered only minor injuries in the mishap. Laughlin was just 16 years old.

Waldos Last Stand - 1940 This is a colorized version (boo!) of the 1940 Our Gang comedy Waldo's Last Stand. In this one, the gang tries to increase the business at Waldo's struggling lemonade stand by putting on a floor show! This episode marked the final appearance of Waldo and the first appearance of Froggy. In the final number, one of the dancers is five-year-old Janet Burston, the girl who would replace Darla Hood as the lead female gang member until the series ran its course.
