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.Written by

If you love Looney Tunes or opera this is a real treat!
Here Bugs takes his revenge on an opera singer named Giovanni Jones and does so with hilarious consequences. The last few minutes are absolutely priceless and one of my all time favourite endings in a Looney Tunes cartoon. Mel Blanc is brilliant as Bugs and Nicolai Shutorov gives a bravura singing performance as Giovanni(though when I first saw this cartoon I could've sworn it was Nelson Eddy). The animation is wonderful, the music is a joy, the gags come by thick and fast and there are a lot of them. In case you are wondering, when Bugs is walking between the orchestra and the members are whispering "Leopold", that is a reference to Leopold Stokowski. Overall, this is a real jewel for Looney Tunes and opera fans and I am both. 10/10 Bethany Cox
