The Big Snooze (1946) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Elmer is so fed up with chas­ing and never catch­ing Bugs that he quits car­toons. He rips up his con­tract and makes sure “Mr. Warner” knows that he’s quit­ting. He decides to go fish­ing instead of hunt­ing. That’s when he falls asleep and Bugs invades his dreams. Bugs and Elmer appear as “Rab­bit and Costello” in a deranged escapade, includ­ing a spoof on Dumbo’s “Pink Ele­phants on Parade” sequence. Elmer appears in drag: “Have any of you girls ever had an expe­ri­ence like this?”

A Corny Con­certo (1943) — Mer­rie Melodies

CotD: Bob Clam­pett was never above tak­ing play­ful swipes at the car­toons from Dis­ney, and “A Corny Con­certo” was one of his best. This par­ody of Fan­ta­sia even includes Elmer Fudd as Deems Taylor…

At Corny-Gie Hall, Elmer (as Deems Tay­lor) con­ducts two car­toons set to music.

In “Tales Of The Vienna Woods,” Bugs foils hunter Porky and his dog. Bugs, Porky and Porky’s dog do a bal­let, with Bugs don­ning drag to appear as a bal­le­rina. The sec­ond piece, “The Blue Danube,” is a spoof of “The Ugly Duck­ling,” with a baby black duck– not unlike a juve­nile Daffy– sav­ing the day when the swans are threat­ened by a goofy buzzard.
