The Rabbit of Seville














Thanks to Kat for unearthing this gem. It's one of my favourites. Unfortunately, because of my misspent childhood watching these cartoons, there are some classical suites I will never be able to hear without seeing the Looney Tunes video in my head... and this is one of them.

Now to find The Scarlet Pumpernickel...

I now have 'Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit!' running through my head for some strange reason...

I suppose there are some educational benefits to be had... I known what Hossenpfeffer is since a child.

Alan - I think I saw that and you're right. We definitely need it... when I get a bit of spare time, I'll be looking for it.
That and, "Sthuperduck!"

Misty - I've always had that...

trt/monkeyboy/gw/audrey - There were many things to be learned from those cartoons. My love of classical music began there. Of course, as I said, there will always be certain passages during which I cannot stifle the giggles. If the choir ever does "The Barber of Seville" I shall be asked to leave... Mind you, I think half of the group would have to go with me...

in the last year or so i've picked up copies of the Looney Tunes golden favourites on DVD. definitely some supreme classics there - particularly on volume three with Hillbilly Hare. the really great thing is that they're all uncut too.

Hey, I found a one episode of Duck Dodgers, but I think there were a few of them, not even counting the recent animated series by that name.

It's kind of funny how blogging works -- you post about Looney Tunes, which inspires me to look for my favorite, which you then re-post... *boggle* Oh yes, and I found my second-favorite, too --Transylvania 6-500. You wouldn't hit a bat with glasses, would you?

Oh, I also found a great badger pic that I thought would make you laugh here.

Hey, I'm having an identity crisis, OK?!

I'm the same way. I encapsulate that quote in Seinfeld when Elaine says to Jerry: "It's a shame that all your knowledge of high culture comes from Bugs Bunny cartoons".

"trt" - Identity crisis, huh? *snort* More like bilateral orchiectomy phobia, methinks.

Mr. Fab - Yes, sadly Jerry and I also share that distinction.

I hope you've all taken advantage of the links Kat so thoughtfully provided above.

Long live high culture!

P.S. - You wouldn't hit a bat with glasses on, would you?

Have to love the small lawnmower hehe.

Another of my favs was the 'What's Opera, Doc?'

Welcome welshtroll!

That's the one where Bugs almost makes the tenor's head explode, right? That's another fav of mine, too.
