Honey, I Blew Up The Kid
Intrada MAF 7030D [40:56]
Carl Stalling we love you! And Broughton certainly seems to be the best of
any composer whos ever been asked or felt inclined to follow in those
classic cartoonish steps. Just think of: Babys Day Out, Stay Tuned,
Harry & The Hendersons, The Rescuers Down Under, or The Monster Squad.
Lest we forget, he also oversaw the scoring of the fantastic Tiny Toons series
When Disney were adamant about not re-doing anything from Honey, I Shrunk
The Kids (since Horners pilfering had got them sued), they turned to
Broughton for something both brand new yet very familiar. Here then is one
of the finest cinematic loony tunes written outside of Warners purlieu.
Attempting to cover the breadth of whats achieved is rather daunting.
As youd expect, the music scurries all over the place at breakneck
pace. No cue sits still long enough to be easily categorised. What can be
said though is that theres a lovely family theme, which can appear
in scatterbrain style whenever Rick Moranis executes another astounding feat
of scientific nincomboobery.
Its one of Broughtons all-time favourites. That ought to be all
the recommendation you need.
