Directed by George Pal
Featuring the voice of Victor Jory
Country: USA
What it is: Puppetoon fable

Tubby the Tuba becomes depressed because the tuba is never given any interesting melodies to play in the orchestra. Can a helpful frog cheer him up and help find a way out of his dilemma?

I’ve covered several of George Pal’s Puppetoons so far, and currently this one is my favorite of the lot. This tale of a tuba trying to find his own voice is perfectly charming, especially as the melody he is taught by the frog is an ideal piece for a tuba solo. The animation is strong, and the characters of the various instruments are interesting. This is one worth catching.
