Watch the Frog!

At some point later in the WB's existence, Michigan J. Frog became more of a symbol than a character. Here's a series of strange "Watch the Frog!" ads...



And at the risk of becoming "Michigan J. Blog", here's yet another WB clip...a station ID with Michigan eating a fly....

From an advertising view, that's a really good idea and catchphrase. I assume it was only broadcast on the WB though? Maybe there were print ads as well?
But you're right, from an animation viewpoint, it's a waste of a great character.

Boy, those "Watch The Frog" idents was like watching a Famous Studios 'toon - kinda monotonous :P

The "Watch the Frog" bumpers probably would have been better if they hadn't rendered Michigan J. in CGI - that expression he has whenever he hits that pose is really creepy in three dimensions.

I take it nobody did watch the frog.
