The All Music Guide simply hated it, but they just had the wrong attitude. Some of the purest pop music written is in the form of cartoon theme songs; meant by design to be short, sticky and easy to digest. Having a slew of alt bands covering those classic Saturday morning pop fests is a cool enough idea. I would have prefered less nineties alt (Helmet, Butthole Surfers, Toadies) and more genuine popsters (Matthew Sweet, Material Issue, Semisonic), but that’s to be expected, since this was released in 1995. It’s true, however, that turning 30 & 60 second themes into 3-1/2 minute pop songs means “filler” becomes a natural part of the process. The artists tend to use those moments to insert their own personalities and ticks. Still, like any various artist/concept, you’ll always want to lose some of the participants. But when the idea works (“The Tra La La Song,” “Josie And The Pussycats,” “Jonny Quest”), it works well. Matthew Sweet plays “Scooby Doo” completely straight-faced, and you can tell the Buttholes are having a blast with “Underdog.” Find it at Amazon (HERE), along with expensive vinyl (HERE) and VHS versions (HERE).
