Behind the Hollywood Bowl stage which is playing the opera, The Barber of Seville, Bugs Bunny flees into the backstage area with Elmer Fudd in close pursuit. Seeing his opportunity to fight on his terms, Bugs raises the curtain on Elmer, trapping him on stage. As the orchestra begins playing, Bugs comes into play as the barber who is going to make sure that Elmer is going to get a grooming he will never forget.

Ooh, wait 'till I get that wabbit!
[Disguised as a Spanish senorita
What would you want with a wabbit? / Can't you see that I'm much sweeter. / I'm your little señoriter. / You are my type of guy. / Let me straighten your tie. / and I shall dance for you.
On ABC, some of Elmer's gunshots were deleted. Possible editing was also done to reduce the depicted violence in the scene of Bugs slashing Elmer's face with a razor. See more
