Trivia

Despite being credited for "voice characterization", Mel Blanc's only voice work in this short is that of the "coughing bum". There is no actual dialog in the entire short, one of only two cartoons (the other being "A Corny Concerto") in which Bugs does not speak. See more »

Unique, But Not That Funny
4 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs is the guest conductor of the Warner Brothers Symphony Orchestra, playing "Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna by Franz Von Suppe."

The whole cartoon is a spoof of overly-dramatic conductors. Bugs exaggerates most of his moves with the orchestra delivering what he's doing. Some of it is funny, some too far- fetched, but that was the idea. Also, the music cleverly also was in sync with little things happening to Bugs' apparel as it fell off here and there, giving him problems.

In all, this short is more clever than it is funny. It's definitely a unique one for Bugs Money and I give them an "A" for originality but a "D" for laughs. Since most of us watch these animations for laughs, clever-or-not this was not up to par.
