Trivia

When Bugs says, "They say music calms the savage beast" he is misquoting. The line is from the play "The Mourning Bride", Act i. Sc. 1., written by William Congreve in 1697. The correct form of the quote is: "Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak." As originally written, it is "Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast, To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak. I've read, that things inanimate have mov'd, And, as with living Souls, have been form'd by Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound." The same play is the source for another often-misquoted line, "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned." (Act iii. Sc. 8.). See more »

then when the hurdy-gurdy hare comes, singing the songs of love
8 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It seems like often when I see portrayals of monkeys belonging to hurdy-gurdy men, the monkeys are real shysters, such as the one who tries to rip off Bugs Bunny here. But of course, "Hurdy-Gurdy Hare" gets really good once the gorilla - presumably Gruesome from "Gorilla My Dreams" - comes after Bugs. Bugs does his usual stuff to avoid getting harmed. True, this was probably one of the cartoons functioning as a place-holder in between the really great ones, but how can you not like what Bugs does? Definitely worth seeing.

Oh, and sorry for the Donovan reference in my summary. In case you're not familiar with that, Donovan sang a song called "Hurdy-Gurdy Man", which recently appeared in the movie "Zodiac".
