The Bar­ber Of Seville (1944) — Woody Wood­pecker Car­toon Series

While Tony Figaro is out to get his phys­i­cal, Woody Wood­pecker heck­les the cus­tomers in the Seville Bar­ber­shop. Woody stands out­side the shop look­ing at the ads and wants a “vic­tory haircut.”

Woody goes to the shop, but the bar­ber isn’t there. Woody decides to take over the oper­a­tion of the bar­ber shop.

The first cus­tomer is an Indian who gets a scalp­ing, fol­lowed by a tough work­man who wishes that he had never run into Woody. All of this fran­tic car­toon fea­tures Woody singing the “Largo al Fac­to­tum” (“The Shav­ing Song”) from “The Bar­ber of Seville,” by Gia­como Rossini.
