Saturday Morning Cartoons: Gounod's Puppets

WQXR

For this week’s Saturday Morning Cartoon we offer up Charles Gounod’s Funeral March of a Marionette

It's the singular soundtrack to the 2001 computer-generated cartoon "Puppet" created by Anzovin Studio. In the short, Dennis the dog stars as both master and marionette in this wordless ballet. You may recognize this Gounod piece from other cartoons like "Animaniacs" and "Ren and Stimpy.

The most famous use of this piece is as theme music for "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", a television series that aired between 1955 and 1965.Composer Bernard Herrmann suggested the piece to Hitchcock,and the rest,as they say,is history.
