Storyline

Opera star Giovanni Jones is trying to rehearse but Bugs is singing another tune while playing his banjo, then his harp, then his tuba. Jones destroys the instruments over Bugs' head, and, of course, "this means war." Revenge takes place when Bugs, as white-maned "Leopold", conducts Jones' Hollywood Bowl concert.

Trivia

One of the reasons the animators likely felt a cartoon audience would recognize Bugs is masquerading as Leopold Stokowski was because Stokowski had appeared prominently in the Disney animated classic Fantasia (1940) nine years before, repeatedly interacting with Mickey Mouse as well as conducting the symphony in the film.

User Reviews

A unique Bugs Bunny classic, deservedly renowned.
21 December 2003 | by rapt0r_claw-1See all my reviews

An essential part of a Looney Tunes cartoon is the music. From the Road Runner music to convey speed or misery and imminent doom, to the normal sound effects. But opera affects the cartoons in a big way.

In this cartoon, Bugs Bunny's music-playing disrupts opera singer Giovanni Jones's rehearsals, which leads to retaliation by the opera singer. Bugs is repeatedly thwarted in attempts to make music, until he decides to get his own back that night by conducting the opera.

It's stupendously funny, like when Giovanni is put off by the singing rabbit and the fat singer begins dancing merrily only to realize he's gone wrong. His expressions of frustration as Bugs starts playing again are great. But Bugs steals the show when he calmly dispatches the singer through his conducting. His raised eyebrows and earmuffs are great. It's on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection and should be.
