Trivia

Was originally pitched as a Bugs Bunny/Elmer Fudd pairing set in a barber shop, with no singing, but it was decided it would be funnier if it was a spoof of the classic opera The Barber of Seville. See more »

Goofs

The bottles and other accessories on the worktop beside the barber's chair constantly change through the cartoon. See more »

Quotes

[singing to Elmer outside the barbershop]
Bugs Bunny: How do?/Welcome to my shop/Let me cut your mop/Let me shave your crop/Daintily, daintily... Hey, you!/Don't look so perplexed/Why must you be vexed?/Can't you see you're next?/Yes, you're next, you're so next!

Masterpiece
9 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just about all you can say. This is my opinion is the greatest animated short of all time. Perfectly recreating the opera with about everything you need.

Bugs as the snake charmer has always been my favorite part, especially the music behind it. Genius! And not Wile E. Coyote either, the directors, producers and animators all deserved every award in the books for this one.

What's Opera Doc is another masterpiece, well constructed, and brilliantly done by the animators. But sorry, it ranks second place in my book as it's not as humorous as Rabbit of Seville. can't say much more except it's won=der-ful.
