Trivia

The songs on Napoleon's jukebox are:
  • "St. Louis XIV Blues": Duc d'Ellington


  • "Bastile Boogie" - Count d'Basie


  • "III Coins in the Fontanbleu": No artist listed, since the title just filled up the slip! (This is the one Bugs, a.k.a. "Josephine", plays on the jukebox)


  • "I Ain't Got No Body": The Guillotiners (Bugs didn't read off this one).

Very underrated Bugs effort
22 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of those Bugs cartoons virtually never mentioned in discussions of the rabbit's supreme efforts. Everyone who worked on this short simply shines--Freleng's designers, Pratt & Wyner, outdo themselves for all time with their settings. Mel Blanc does his usual brilliant work, with a supremely strident Napoleon, a kind of surrogate for Yosemite Sam. The animators do exemplary work: Art Davis (who did all the scenes of Nappy & Muggsy being jabbed in the ass), Gerry Chiniquy (who did the very opening where burrowing Bugs topples the palace guards), and Virgil Ross (who did the opening & closing dialogue scenes...fine personality animation not readily apparent to most viewers). Oh yes--and Freleng's superb timing and cutting, especially when he cuts away to those long shots of Muggsy leaping in the air when he's jabbed.
