The Cartoon Medley

26 October 2010 53 comments


All those classic cartoon themes in one single medley! The nostalgia will overcome you as FreddeGredde takes you on a journey back to being a child.

I had doubts about making this one. Up to this point, I felt that all my videos were unique, that I had not been repeating myself. But with this, it was just yet another medley, and I didn’t want to become “the guitar medley guy”. But, I really wanted to sing some of these songs (Darkwing Duck, Winnie the Pooh and Donald Duck especially), and I couldn’t include them in a future “32 other songs in 8 minutes” like I had planned, because the original “32 songs” had been removed due to a copyright claim.
So, I just made a normal video. It did get quite fresh in the end though, because of my added background singers, and the tiny animated FreddeGredde parachute guy, which I’m quite satisfied with! I finally got to use my interest in animation for a video.

Oh, and the video got quite popular, and for the first time, I found a noticeable Swedish audience. (Probably because I added two Swedish songs.)

Song list:
0:01 DuckTales
0:26 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
0:36 Animaniacs
0:48 Inspector Gadget
0:56 Ghostbusters
1:10 Digimon
1:19 Darkwing Duck

2:23 Bamse (Swedish)
2:37 Scooby Doo
2:49 The Smurfs (French: Les Schtroumpfs)
2:58 Winnie the Pooh
3:26 Denver the Last Dinosaur
3:48 Dexter’s Laboratory
3:55 BraveStarr
4:03 Chip&Dale: Rescue Rangers
4:35 Tiny Toon Adventures
4:47 Adventures of the Gummi Bears
5:12 The Moomins (Finnish)
5:24 Sonic SatAm
5:44 My Little Pony
5:57 Flintstones
6:08 Transformers
6:19 Dr Snuggles

    När jag spelade upp det här videoklippet så sprang min femåriga lillebror från rummet bredvid och sen dess har han börjat gilla dina videoklipp. Han gillar speciellt dr snuggles,transformers och scooby doo i denna medley. Det här videoklippet är en barnmagnet. Själv tycker jag att det här videoklippet var jättebra och rolig att lyssna på.

  • Jordan said:

    Very well done good sir! That brought me through a time portal back to my chair where I would watch most of these. You are quite skilled my friend. Here is a link to some music I myself have endeavored upon. http://www.curetheband.com. Thank you.

  • Silver said:

    Ohohoh. That was quite an experience.And even here,your voice is so smooth and beautiful. Especially in Swedish and French… I wish you would do a project in which you sang in either of those languages.
    Pure beauty! I think you may have another fangirl, sorry. D:

  • Brit said:

    wow…you are amazing!! I cant stop watching your videos. Your voice is beautiful and you have talent. You will make it big in the U.S for sure.

  • Лиза said:

  • Nando said:

    Hi Fredde!

    Bravo!..sei grande. Sono un tuo fan dall’Italia e scusami se non parlo la tua lingua ma dovevo proprio dirlo, questo video mi è piaciuto molto, è simpatico sopratutto l’ultima parte con la canzone di Donald Duck! spero che ne farai degli altri così.
    Comunque, io ti seguo costantemente dall’Italia.
    CIAO!

  • Sonya said:

    Hey)
    It’s amazing!
    Hope you have music of that)
    where can I find it?

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    Sonya: I have chords.. Or what do you mean?

  • Kim said:

    Hej jag undrar vilka musik program du använder? Och jag tycker att du är hur grym som helst :)

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    Kim: Det står i FAQ-sektionen. :) Tack!

  • Kim said:

    Okej tack!!

  • Emma said:

    Jag måste säga det att du är skitgrym! Jag sjunger din Cartoon medley nästan hela tiden, men börjar vid Darkwing Duck och slutar vid BraveStarr :D Lyssnar alltid på dig på YouTube!

  • Sonya said:

    It was really that)
    I know where they are :)

  • Sonya said:

    Where I can download this track?)

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    You can’t, for now. =/ I’ll see what I can do about it..

  • sachin said:

    Hey I saw this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIMovCGpBfk&feature=related
    it has the original songs in it.

    You have some really awesome transcribing abilities!!!
    I can’t believe you could do this just listening to the base in the songs.
    Seriously man,what made you so good?

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    sachin: Hmm.. I would say it’s just my interest in understanding things, just not music, that made me “so good”. :) Listening to the bass is only the first step, but the more you practice, the easier it will be to hear the full chords in songs. Just like you’re able to hear the vocal melodies first, then the bass, then the vocal harmonies, and then what’s in-between.
    Also, most songs are the same really, so it’s usually easy to guess the patterns before even getting there.

  • Claire said:

    I’ve seen this so many times I can sing along with you no problem haha =D LOVE IT!

  • Amanda Caniatto said:

    Nostalgic.
    All songs from my childhood. =D
    Except the swedish ones.
    Very good.

  • Emma said:

    Du är jättebra! Tar det inte lång tid att sätta ihop alla medlyerna så allt blir bra och inte låter konstigt?

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    Emma: Nja, inte så värst lång tid. Men det är ju det som är själva jobbet med medleys; att hitta bra övergångar, att hitta låtar som har samma tempo och ackord så det flyter ihop naturligt. Tack. ^^

  • Alejandro said:

    Fredde thanks are my inspiration to be a musician professionals. I hope

  • Steve said:

    Fantastic!

  • Matthew said:

    That was great, it did bring back a lot of old memories, but more than anything, you did a great job with making those old cheesy songs enjoyable to listen to. The transformers one was the funniest I thought, and I didn’t even watch that when I was a kid.

  • Carina said:

    That was simply amazing. I was grinning the whole time, especially when Winnie the Pooh came on. And your Donald Duck was also magnificent. Thank you so much for this trip down memory lane!

  • Alexander said:

    Hi, Fredde
    You are one of the best singers and guitar players!
    Thank you for your videos, they are divine!
    One question: Is it possible to find tabs for “Cartoon medley”?
    I found the chords, but what string to pull and when I do not understand :(

    Hello from Russia :)

  • Jelle said:

    Hi there,

    First off, awesome video! Really loved it!! Just like lots off people here, I was wondering if you have a tab? If you have, that would be wonderful! If you don’t have them, could you please make me one for Ducktales? I Googled/youtube it a lot, but your version is way way waaaaay better than all the others on line!

    Thx!

  • Kyle said:

    You are amazing and have a real original talent. Thanks for the terrific video. Coincidentally when I Stumbled Upon this I was watching DuckTales :D

  • Art Disney said:

    Hallo :)
    Is in “Darkwing Duck” barre?
    If not give for me chords :D
    Give me chords without barre

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    The chords are Gm, A, D7 and Cm. Check out the tabs page for when they’re played. And well, there are ways to play them without using bar chords, but I’d rather recommend that you learn how to play bar chords! ^^

  • Art Disney said:

    I train barre

  • Marc said:

    Wow! very unique way to collaborate all of your favorite cartoon music. Thumbs up sir! I really appreciate the effort that being made here. Keep it up sir! ^^,

  • Ali5a said:

    That Moomin-part is so wonderfullll…. I think your finnish singin-skills are something so great! :D I got chills, when I heard it at the first time.

    This is so nostalgic. I almost started to cry! :)

    And your smile is so cute! :)

  • Ali5a said:

    And I forget to say, that I read Bamse, when I was only a little girl. It was, of course, in finnish (called “Maailman Vahvin Nalle”, “The Worlds Strongest Bear”) and I get so called “awww”-seizure, when I heard you singin that!

    And that change from Chip&Dale to Tiny Toon was amazing.

  • happy said:

    So impressed everytime I hear you! You’re control in the upper ranges is staggering!

  • Simoné said:
