Storyline

Opera star Giovanni Jones is trying to rehearse but Bugs is singing another tune while playing his banjo, then his harp, then his tuba. Jones destroys the instruments over Bugs' head, and, of course, "this means war." Revenge takes place when Bugs, as white-maned "Leopold", conducts Jones' Hollywood Bowl concert.

Revenge isn't over while the fat laddie sings.
12 May 2014 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Bugs upsets an opera singer, Giovanni Jones, by singing and playing instruments nearby while the singer is trying to practice. Jones gets so irked that he visits Bugs, breaks his instruments and continues forcing him to shut up. Bugs plans his revenge, which will come about on the night of the big concert, with the smart rabbit using reverberation, alum, dynamite and even a disguise to look like Leopold Stokowski.

Directed by Chuck Jones, from a story by Michael Maltese, this is classic stuff. Bugs is lounging around, just trying to enjoy his leisurely life, and is pushed to a point that demands he fights back.

The gags are great, with a reliance more on physical humour in this outing than the verbal dexterity that the wise-cracking rabbit often uses. The way in which he emulates Stokowski is, even for a cartoon, pretty damn good, and a lot of fun (e.g. Bugs uses his hands, as Stokowski would conduct without a baton).

Looney Tunes fans will love this but, then again, Looney Tunes fans should love most of their output. Because most of their cartoons were brilliant.
