Overview

Synopsis

Haredevil Hare
Rabbit of Seville
Warner Brothers cartoon director Chuck Jones casts Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny in the roles of opera singers in the Looney Tunes short The Rabbit of Seville. Preceding Jones' famous Wagner parody What's Opera, Doc? by seven years, this short begins out in the wilds, with Elmer chasing the wascally wabbit through the woods. Bugs takes refuge in a local building, which turns out to be an opera house; naturally, the two manage to become stuck on stage when the show, a performance of Rossini's The Barber of Seville, begins. Bugs sings hilarious new lyrics to the opera's overture, penned by Jones and writer Michael Maltese, as he forces the confused hunter into a barber's chair and treats him to a full make-over, beginning with a rather violent shave. Other barbershop gags include Bugs snake-charming an electric razor, a race for the ceiling between escalating barber's chairs, and a pedicure involving a can opener. Perhaps the most memorable sequence, however, involves a bottle of "Figaro fertilizer" that makes Elmer's head grow hair -- and then sprout flowers. Unlike What's Opera, Doc?, this is a comic opera, so all ends relatively happily, with a nod to The Marriage of Figaro. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

What's Opera, Doc?
One of the most beloved of all Warner Brothers cartoons, What's Opera Doc? re-imagines the Elmer Fudd versus Bugs Bunny conflict as a German opera, complete with expressionist sets, tragic romance, and a majestic chorus of "Kill the wabbit!" Director Chuck Jones and writer Michael Maltese combine the usual wisecrack humor with a real appreciation of the classical form, crafting a loving parody of Wagner's Ring Cycle that manages to condense the massive four-opera work into a single, seven-minute story of a hunter, a rabbit, and a spear and magic helmet. Elmer takes on the Siegfried role, planning to use the magic armor to capture the rabbit. However, Bugs, as always, has countless schemes to foil Elmer -- including posing as his true love, the warrior maiden Brunhilde. When Elmer discovers this deception, however, he uses the full force of his magic to call up the power of the weather -- including winds, hurricanes, and the worst horror of all, smog. But for a few comic asides, all the dialogue is sung. Brilliant voice characterizations, wonderfully designed backgrounds, and smart writing all combine, under Jones' guidance, to create a hilarious classic. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

The Old Grey Hare
Despairing over his inability to catch Bugs Bunny in his own time, Elmer Fudd is suddenly thrust forward to the year 2000 AD, courtesy of God (making a rare movie appearance). After catching up with the latest news headlines ("Smellivision Replaces Television"), the ancient, wrinkled Elmer grabs his trusty Buck Rogers Lightning-Quick Rabbit Killer and finally manages to bag the equally elderly Bugs ("What's up, Pruneface?") As he lays dying, Bugs recalls the first time he and Elmer met as babies, then tearfully buries himself in his own grave...or does he? The closing gag is a blast! ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Knighty Knight Bugs
Bugs Bunny attempts to procure the Singing Sword for the Knights of the Round Table in this Academy Award-winning cartoon from the legendary Friz Freleng. A court jester who gets on King Arthur's bad side for declaring that only a fool would attempt to wrangle the mythical weapon from the dreaded Black Knight, Bugs is sent to the villain's castle to do what the Knights of the Round Table cannot. While sneaking into the castle is easy enough, wrangling the Singing Sword from the Black Knight and his sneezing dragon proves to be quite a chore. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Baseball Bugs
My Dream Is Yours
My Dream Is Yours is a Technicolor remake of the jaunty 1934 Warner Bros. musical Twenty Million Sweethearts. But there's a significant difference here: whereas in the earlier film singing-waiter Dick Powell was turned into a crooning idol, in the remake it is Doris Day who is catapulted to stardom. Jack Carson (who was reportedly romantically involved with Day during filming) is the hot-shot promoter who makes a celebrity out of Day and lives to regret it, as does she, before the happy ending. The film's highlight is an animated dream sequence courtesy of Warners' cartoon division, directed by Friz Freleng and featuring cameos by Bugs Bunny and Tweety. Edgar Kennedy makes his final screen appearance in the role of Day's flustered uncle. The songs in My Dream Is Yours includes the big hit from Twenty Million Sweethearts, "I'll String Along With You." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Bugs and friends appear in this animated sports compilation which includes segments such as boxing, wrestling and golf. ~ Kristie Hassen, Rovi
