Frog is an animated cartoon character who debuted in the Looney Tunes cartoon One Froggy Evening (December 31, 1955), written by Michael Maltese and directed by Chuck Jones. In this cartoon, Michigan is a male frog who wears a top hat, carries a cane, sings pop music, ragtime, Tin Pan Alley hits, and other songs from the late 19th and early 20th century while dancing and performing acrobatics in the style of early 20th century vaudeville. He appeared in a later cartoon entitled Another Froggy Evening which was released on October 6, 1995. His name comes from the song "The Michigan Rag" (an original song written by Jones, Maltese and musical director Milt Franklyn), which he sings in the cartoon.
