The Gay Anties


Comments by: Rating: 10 out of 10 stars Posted: November 09, 2003
One of Freleng's superlative musical cartoons, it's also his most unheralded. Why?? The ants may be devilish, but there's a real work ethic behind their activities.
DAZZLINGLY INVENTIVE gags, dreamed up by Friz himself (despite the official credits, Mike Maltese & Tedd Pierce didn't write this cartoon at all--according to Leonard Maltin's "Of Mice & Magic," Freleng's musical cartoons were planned entirely by the director himself). Gorgeous animation from Gerry Chiniquy (the sandwich construction sequences; the lady ants' parasol dance; and the ants' triumphant gallop back into their hole), and also by Virgil Ross (the climactic "Time Waits For No One" number).

Another of Freleng's superlative musical cartoons, it's also the most unheralded by critics & buffs. Why?? The ants may be devilish, but there's a real work ethic behind their activities. Inventive gags, dreamed up by Friz himself (Pierce & Maltese really didn't write it at all--according to Leonard Maltin, Freleng said, "You couldn't work with a writer [on these musical cartoons] unless he understood the music as well as you did"). Gorgeous animation, too, from Gerry Chiniquy (the lady ants' parasol dance, the sandwich construction sequences, & the ants' triumphant gallop back into their hole) and equally fine animation by Virgil Ross (the climactic "Time Waits for No One" number).
