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.

Another of my favourite Bugs Bunny episodes.
16 June 2008 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

If you were to ask me, "Who do you prefer, Daffy or Bugs?", I would immediately say Daffy. However, I do have to admit that sometimes Bugs Bunny can put on a very good performance and this is one of them.

In this, Bugs Bunny is playing a number of instruments on a hillside and singing. At the bottom of the hill, a famous opera singer is trying to practise for a big concert later on. He is constantly distracted by Bugs and takes revenge mercilessly. Bugs is determined to have HIS revenge...

I like this because of the plot, the humour, the opera and singing.

I recommend this to people who like Bugs Bunny in anything and who can bear with opera. Enjoy! :-)
