Three Little Bops Opening

Friz Freleng has the title of the cartoon dance onto the screen before our eyes.

And they bop to the music. There are 14 frames in this cycle. What you see below is pretty much the speed of the cycle in the cartoon.

Bob Matz gets his first animation credit. Hawley Pratt uses his stylised designs for the characters while Stan Freberg sings along to Shorty Rogers’ music which owes a lot to “Rock Around the Clock.”
