Opera star Giovanni Jones is trying to rehearse but Bugs is singing another tune while playing his banjo, then his harp, then his tuba.

Long-Haired Hare is another hilarious Bugs Bunny cartoon by Chuck Jones
31 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Another classic Bugs Bunny cartoon directed by Chuck Jones. In Long-Haired Hare, our rabbit likes to sing and play the banjo, harp, and tuba. But Giovanni Jones, an opera singer who lives nearby, is constantly distracted to the point of joining along. So he hits Bugs with those instruments. After getting his ears tied to a tree branch causing his head to go up and down, Bugs declares, "Of course you know, this means war!" Attaboy, Bugs! If you haven't seen this yet, I won't spoil the rest for you. Instead, I'll just say this: When Bugs gets even, he GETS even! As always, Michael Maltese deserves credit for thinking up some of the funniest cartoons of all time.
