Trivia

At the end of the cartoon, you can see Bugs mouthing something, (apparently extreme profanity), but no actual words are heard. This is similar to other Looney Toons/Merrie Melodies shorts, where characters mouth the words of phrases that won't pass the censors (e.g. Yosemite Sam saying (underwater) "F***ing a**hole" in Buccaneer Bunny (1948), or an Indian mouthing "G**d***ed son of a b****", voiced by the orchestra, in The Hardship of Miles Standish (1940)).

A Hilarious Cartoon That's Filled With Big Laughs!
19 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Bugs attempts to perform Liszt's Second Hungarian Rhapsody, he is troubled by a mouse. All throughout the course of this cartoon, there are a lot of laughs in it, and when I say laughs, I mean big laughs! Like most Looney Tunes cartoons that I have seen, this one is hilarious, it's funny, witty, clever, outrageous and hilarious! What I really like about this is that the Hungarian Rhapsody number 2 by Franz Liszt is one of my all time favorite classical pieces, and that really helps make this one great, no, it makes it wonderful!

Here's a bit of trivia for you. This short was released around the same time at a Tom And Jerry cartoon called The Cat Concerto came out, which had a similar plot and storyline, and it won an Oscar. In response to that, Friz Freleng and Warner Bros. began to accuse MGM of stealing the idea, or in other-words, plagiarizing, whereas William Hanna and Joseph Barbera responded by saying that they were the ones who were victims of plagiarism. But if you ask me, I say that it was just a coincidence. And besides, both of them are hysterical, and some of the best cartoons of all time!

So anyway, watch this hysterical cartoon, you will see Bugs Bunny at one of his best, as he plays one of Franz Liszt's best pieces, all while trying to fight a mouse who's trying to foul up the show! You should also watch The Cat Concerto, as that cartoon is also a hilarious one, and this one is too! Looking for a good cartoon to watch? Then watch this, as it's certainly a good cartoon, and it is a very, very, funny one as well, making all the more greater!

10/10
