Does an audio recording of Trick or Treat, by Thurl Ravenscroft and The Mellowmen, used for the 1952 short by the same name, starring Donald Duck, his nephews, and Witch Hazel, exist on CD or vinyl?

Almandot posted a version of "Trick or Treat" here last Halloween. I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for, or where he got it. Link below.

Yeah, I thought about ripping a DVD and getting the audio from there. It appears that there are longer song segments in the Trick or Treat short than there are on the Trick or Treat vinyl record.

The catchy little tune was written by Paul J. Smith.

Adventurers Club fans will recognize this song as one that was performed during the special Halloween shows in the Library.

Hmmm. It sounds like it was pieced together from the film. Thanks for the link, it'll do, and it saves me from reproducing much the same, but I was really hoping Disney or The Mellowmen would have released a stand-alone version featuring just Thurl and gang.

Sort of along the same thread, I have been listening to a lot of Halloween albums this year. While it is not a Disney album, you can hear Thurl Ravenscroft and Paul Frees on Spike Jones Spooktacular.

In addition to the incomplete song appearing in short bits on the aforemention Disneyland LP, Karen and Cubby also recorded their own version for a Mickey Mouse Club LP called HOLIDAYS WITH THE MOUSEKETEERS, reissued as THE Disneyland LP HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SONGS FOR EVERY HOLIDAY. Their version is slower and has some lyric changes.
 
That was good timing Greg. I pulled out the 45rpm of Scarecrow of Romney Marsh (LG-774) this morning to record and on the flip side was a Trick or Treat version. As I listened I said to myself, "That sounds like Karen and Cubby" so you confirmed it for me :) Thanks!

I made my version I posted using the 3 parts to the song from the movie like was suggested. I felt that was the most complete way to do it.

Well, I have it in decompressed ac3 48khz audio. But what, were you planning on blasting this in the Disney Concert Hall or something? :D

What the hell, I'm game. :D But I expect video of whatever you use it for and that it's not just going to some site. :p And it better be a kick-@$ stereo system. PM'ed it. okay i guess PM's don't work. email'ed it to your .mac

Dave O'Neal would never include a lossless quality track on one of his CDs. It has to be a 24kbps 2khz 8-bit midi file upconverted to 16bit 44.1khz cd quality straight from the master reel.

Get real. Dave Oneal would release the entire cartoon (video+audio) straight from the original negative in Disney's vault and then digitally enhanced with a unique encoding process from YouTube.

I don't think Disney has Trick or Treat in their vault anymore. They'll probably have to buy it from Dave.

I have a question. Is this the only time a WB character and a WB voice actor actually appeared in a Disney short cartoon (Witch Hazel and June Foray, respectively)?

I heard June tell a story about Witch Hazel one time and how Disney and WB had a character named that. For the life of me I can't remember it right now. But man, would it have been relevant right about now...

According to that blog, Disney did it first. An excerpt:

"In covering Who Framed Roger Rabbit, I stumbled upon an interesting tidbit about Witch Hazel, one of my favorite female Looney Tunes. There was never just one Witch Hazel. Disney had their own version, but the Warner Bros. appeared in Roger Rabbit... well actually, in deleted scenes. Animator Chuck Jones (one of my favorite animators), of his own admission, got the idea of Witch Hazel from the Disney cartoon."
 
Hey Almandot,

I thought your edit of trick or treat was pretty good, it's exactly how I would have edited it. Plus the bitrate is fine for that song... It's not like there is some crazy dynamic range in the song... 128 is perfect.
