Background notes: Little Toot was originally a children's book created by Hardie Gramatsky in 1939 while he was an animator at Disney. Disney licensed the character for the cartoon Melody Time from 1949 where one of the stories was about Little Toot. Little Toot starred in his own cartoon Little Toot again in 1954, and a few stories was made for Walt Disney's Comics and Stories. The character Little Toot has not been used by Disney for many years. It has been speculated that Disney lost the licencing rights, but these speculations has not been confirmed.
