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)).

Hungarian/Bohemian/American Rhapsody, and probably a precursor to a scene in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"
7 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In one of many Looney Tunes cartoons involving classical music, Bugs Bunny is in concert playing Franz Liszt's "Second Hungarian Rhapsody" (despite claiming to have never heard of Liszt) but gets interrupted by audience members and then by a mouse. When I heard the tune, I remembered the scene in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" where Daffy Duck and Donald Duck are playing that song and keep undermining each other's performances. Hopefully, I'm not the only one who thinks that cartoons and Franz Liszt's music are a cool mix.

Anyway, "Rhapsody Rabbit" is truly part of the pantheon of classic cartoons. You may just feel like playing the piano yourself after watching this.
