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.

Hilarious cartoon that looks forward to Chuck Jones's even better spoofs on high culture; but avoid most TV prints
5 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs loves music. He's just out in the meadow, minding his own business, playing "A Rainy Night in Rio" on his banjo like any other fun-loving rabbit. But who should come outside but the great big pompous opera star, Giovanni Jones, needing quiet for his own rehearsal. After Jones smashes Bugs's banjo over his furry head, Bugs shrugs it off. "Music-hater," he concludes. He shrugs off the next attack with, "Rabbit-hater." The third attack? "Of course you know, this means war."

Later, during the star's performance at the Hollywood Bowl, Bugs sneaks in and finds devious uses for alum; a mallet; a bobby-soxer disguise; a pen that looks suspiciously like a stick of dynamite; and finally a long-haired white wig that will convince everyone he's Leopold Stokowski. The great "Leopold" will demand a performance from Jones that he'll never forget.

This hilarious Bugs Bunny short looks forward to Chuck Jones's even better spoofs on high culture, "The Rabbit of Seville" (1950) and "What's Opera, Doc?" (1957). This is highly recommended, but avoid TV prints until nervous broadcasters stop cutting out all the violence. We can't have the kiddies seeing opera singers beat up on rabbits who retaliate in kind, can we? The little darlings might go shooting up schools. Raise your hand if you'd like to see Bugs Bunny ignore Jones (Giovanni, I mean) during the next broadcast and go right after timid censors who want to chop comedy masterpieces all to hell.

"Oh, please sign my autograph, you big hunk of a pseudo-moralist you!"

Kaboom!

NOTE: This short is available on "Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume One," Disc 1.
