From Patrick :

The name "Michigan J. Frog" was not given to the frog at the time of this shorts original release, but was given by Chuck Jones years later.

From Patrick :

One of the best, probably one of the most well-known and certainly one of the most entertaining cartoons ever made. The reason that it is so entertaining is because the cartoon works on two levels. On on level, the frog singing is entertaining (if not, in necessity to the plot, a little short) and you could almost make a whole cartoon just out of that. But on a secondary level, the plot of the cartoon is completely enthralling as well.
