I think that Michael Maltese wrote the song. I'm not 100% sure, but that's what I seem to remember from somewhere...Originally posted by happyheathen
Hey Everybody! You can come out now!
Allee allee outsinfree!
the title song appears in at least 2 'toons (Drip-Along Daffy and Nelly's Folly)
Q: Was this a real song, or somthing WB'ers made up?
(Gower Gulch is either:
a. a formation in Death Valley (not likely the reference)
- or -
b. the area in Hollywood around the intersection of Hollywood Blvd. and Gower Ave (probably the reference))
For the 2nd question, it's "b" alright. Here's a quote which explains "Gower Gulch".
From "Hollywood: Land and Legend" [Zelda Cini and Bob Crane]
"Pretty young girls and handsome young men elbowed each other out of the way at studio gates, pushing and shoving to be first at even the hint of a 'cattle call,' when a studio was open to casting extras and other minor roles. Hungry actors, many already costumed in western outfits, clustered hopefully at the corner of Gower Street and Sunset Boulevard in such numbers the corner itself came to be known as Gower Gulch, a name it still holds although the studios are long gone."
FWIW, "Gower Gulch" is also seen as a stop for the train (but not in a song) in "All A-Bir-r-r-d".
How'd I do?
