The six talented and witty musicians that make up The Queen’s Cartoonists are extraordinarily well-versed in the ins and outs of cartoon music. Come to think of it, aren’t we all? From the zany swing of classic Saturday morning cartoon anarchy—Bugs Bunny and his Warner Bros. cohort, especially—to the sweep of bygone Disney to contemporary small-screen favorites like The Simpsons, the music that underpins these beloved touchstones is like a universal language. Gleefully zipping through works by Raymond Scott, Carl Stalling, Danny Elfman, Alf Clausen, John Williams, and more—running the gamut from lightning fast swing to sync’d video projections, vocal numbers, and comedy routines—The Queen’s Cartoonists are masters of the form. They are somehow able to locate oodles of fresh humor and energy and grandeur in tunes you’ve heard countless times from modest TV speakers. Add in some off-beat selections (Bambi Meets Godzilla, anyone?), and you have something really special. For kids, what better way to get a crash course in the wonders of animation and cartoon music? For adults, the unavoidable rush of nostalgia and excitement will make you feel like a kid again.
