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.
