Exploding musical instrument scheme is the same in three Warner Brothers cartoons. The musical score is "Those Endearing Young Charms". In order, they are, first is 1951's Ballot Box Bunny (1951), as Yosemite Sam tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with a piano. Second is 1957's Show Biz Bugs (1957), as Daffy Duck tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with a xylophone. Then, in 1965, the rivals were Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner, in Rushing Roulette (1965). Wile E. Coyote set up a piano, & after the Roadrunner played a 'sour note', Wile E. played the correct theme. Additional fact: The very same musical note, approximately the seventh note to the tenth note, is the note, that is not played correctly, every time and when correctly played, by the schemer, gets the explosion occurred to it, instead.

As the lights dim on Warner Bros. animation, a final burst of brilliance
5 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In spite of the late-1950s atmosphere of shrinking budgets and apathy toward theatrical shorts, Friz Freleng pulled off a comedy masterwork here. Yes, some of the gags have been used before, but like other old masters who rework favorite themes during their autumn years, Freleng and Co. distill and focus on the essentials to make this film a highlight of the entire Looney Tunes series. Set in the theatrical milieu Freleng used repeatedly during his Warners tenure, Show Biz Friz responds with a Bugs-Daffy outing that for sheer enjoyment can take its place alongside the Chuck Jones "trilogy" of B&D epics. Note also the animation in the wabbit and duck's "Tea for Two"; such elegance would soon be sacrificed at the altar of Hanna-Barbera and other Saturday morning TV fodder factories.
