Well OK, if you're going to call out Magica I'll make a special effort to 
leave out at least one of those n's...   :)

Well I listened to both versions repetedly but didn't detect any 
difference in the length of the two pieces of music.  In both cases the 
pieces start immediately after Practial asks, "who's there?"  They both 
end immediately after the wolf finishes his pitch and just before 
Practical says "thank you!"  The melody seemed different than what you 
depicted above, but I couldn't tell you what notes were played.  (It almost 
seemed like the same sequence of notes that you show, but starting and 
finishing at different points...)  

One thing I did notice after listening to those peices over and over, was
that Zeke was pronouncing "away" as "g'way" so the second sentence of his 
pitch is "I'm giving g'way free sample."  

If I get really ambitious, I'll reconnect my tape recorder to the stereo 
and try playing both soundtracks simultaneously in different channels.  
Don't hold your breath on me doing that, though...

That's for sure!  But, now I'm beginning to wonder about his obsession for 
pork! :)
