What are your favorite stock music cues used in cartoons? Mine would be the Hi-Q and Langlois Filmusic cues used in Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear cartoons. Jack Shaindlin's "On the Run" and "Toboggan Run" are excellent chase themes. Shame I can't find "On the Run" anywhere on the Internet. I also like the tracks from the Thomas J. Valentino library used in the Commonwealth prints of Paul Terry's silent Aesop's Fable cartoons.

There was a stock track in the Radio & Television Packagers redrawn version of "Felix Misses His Swiss" [felix] that I thought was groovy. It shows up around the point where Felix begins shooting the mice. I recall on one of the older boards that there was a bit of discussion about the stock music in those redrawns.

The APM music is awesome. (You may have heard it from shows such as Ren & Stimpy and I believe SpongeBob SquarePants.)

The cue you mention is on the APM site. It's "Strummin' That Old Banjo" by Alan Parker and Alan Hawkshaw.

THe ones you mentioned, and a handful on Augie Doggie (Seasons 1 and 2)
"Swinging Ghosts" Hecky Krasnow SAM FOX USED ON "Mars Liittle Precious" about Augie babysitting a Martian kid but falling asleep and leaving it up to Dear old Doggie Daddy- When Doggie Daddy follows the kid, Oingo Boinga, "A Peck Of ATrouble" during a mosquito scene and "Yuk Yuk Duck" with Yakky (not yet named) first time he shows up

The Phil Green(?) one from Hi-Q in a number of Augie's, like in "High and Flighty"(the flying saucer one) where Daddy walks back downhearted to his house, also by Jay Ward in the "Fractured Fairy Tale" The Ugly Duckling, where he wants to be a star, in the Pixie and Dixie "Lend Lease Meece" (the rivalry between Jinks and another cat) when this little hobo mouse wlaks up and tells his tale of woe, endeearing him to a new home with the cat, and the Huck cartoon Nutts over Mutts with him as a dogcatcher and the proto-Muttley laugh pooch's limp charade. It has a ABAC 16 bar medley and is really hammy, sadly trudging with a trombone solo.May have been used by Warner Bros.in its 1960 commercials on Bugs Bunny.

Green's "Bush Baby" in Augie shorts, also in one of the cartoons using that liubrary, Freleng's only one, "A Bird in a Bonnett" when Granny picks up the bonnet and in Clokey's Gumby shorts "Too Loo" (1956) when thew star music notes bounce around for the first time and introduce themselves, and "Of Clay & Critters" when Gumby, Pokey, and dog Nopey are in a very surreal, bizarre and abstract background with a painter and his big thumb, and Nopey the dopg scares it off.

Jack Shaindlin's Quick Draw series chases.

Seely and Loose's cues, Hecky Krasnow's "Happy Cobbler" on Augie
, and a handful of Winston Sharples ones in Paramount/Famous, Felix the Cat-Trans Lux and Total TTV cartoons used in Tennesse Tuxedo, season ne,1963.
And the creepy one (Raoul Kraushaar) that appears in Huck, Pixie and Dixie, Beany and Cecil and some others such as in "Space Bear", which also had a lot of excellent stock cues including a Jack Shaindlin Quick Draw one, when the ranger takes phone calls..started in Season 2 of Huck (1959-60), "Leave it to Beaver" also used it, may have been in the non-Looney attempt by Waner to use stock cues (like in the commercials, and their Bell Sciene series.)

Pokey, that trombone cue sounds to me like a Shaindlin piece.

I have a few cues that make me say a quote from a work associated with it.

  • "Toboggan Run" by Jack Shaindlin; I can't hear it without shouting "Come back here, you miserable meeces!"

  • "Documentary Main Title" by Phil Green; a pretty majestic piece to use in an H-B short (specifically, High Fly Guy).

  • "Eerie Dramatic" by Spencer Moore; "I'm gonna HIT CHA, and you're gonna FAAAAAALLLL."

  • "House of Horror" by W. Merrick Farran; "Attention, everyone! There's a chubby pink starfish on the loose!"

  • "Hog Fever (a)": *SpongeBob dos the worm in the middle of the street*
