Be Vewy Vewy Quiet

What's Opera, Doc, one of the classics. I learned more about opera from Looney Tunes than I did from anyone else until I grew up.

Thanks for this! Is there anything better than Wagner and Elmer Fudd? I don't think so. These introduced me to classical music, too--Bugs Bunny as "Leopold"--bringing the opera shell down around the pretentious but obedient tenor. Or Bugs Bunny as the Barber of Seville!? What a classic. Or, less highbrow, the frog in the building cornerstone that only sings ragtime when no one's looking. I can still make my daughter laugh by bursting into a chorus of "Kill the Wabbit!!!" These guys were geniouses
