Check My Machine


Soundbytes from this cartoon film, "Tweet Zoo," with Tweety and Sylvester, directed by Friz Freleng in 1957 were sampled and used by Paul McCartney in 1980 for his song "Check My Machine", which originally was the B-side to the "Waterfalls" single. McCartney is a well known lover of cartoons, and has produced a few in his own right.
Paul and his late wife Linda also hosted a Walt Disney Christmas special in the early seventies.
"Check My Machine" is currently more available than it was initially, having been included as a bonus track on the "McCartney II" CD, and also available from iTunes and other online music downloads vendors.
