He originally appreared in a WB cartoon, as you probably know, where he would only do his singing/dancing act for whoever owned him. Try as they might to get him to perform for an agent, or for an audience he would not.

One of the songs he sang was the Michigan Rag.

Here is a bit more info:

Michigan J. Frog was an animated cartoon character who debuted in the Looney Tunes cartoon One Froggy Evening (December 31, 1955), written by Michael Maltese and directed by Chuck Jones. In this cartoon Michigan is a male frog who occasionally wears a top hat, carries a cane, sings pop music, ragtime, Tin Pan Alley hits, and other songs from the late 19th and early 20th century while dancing and performing acrobatics in the style of early 20th century vaudeville. The character appeared in a later cartoon entitled "Another Froggy Evening" (October 6, 1995). His name comes from the song "The Michigan Rag" (an original song written by Jones, Maltese, and musical director Milt Franklyn), which he sings in the cartoon. In a clip from a DVD special, Jones stated that he had come up with the name "Michigan Frog" during the 1970s and was inspired to add the "J." as a middle initial while being interviewed by a writer named Jay Cox.
