The Hol­ly­wood Bowl Orches­tra is tun­ing up for “The Bar­ber of Seville” when the peren­nial rab­bit hunt lands Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny on stage. Bugs takes over the opera at Elmer’s expense.

The raised cur­tain gives Bugs the chance to shave Elmer within an inch of his life to the opera’s famous over­ture. Razor fly­ing, Bugs hacks away at Fudd’s face (which looks as if it “might have gone through a machine”) cov­ered with a frothy milk­shake of shav­ing cream.

Mex­i­can Joyride (1947) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Cartoon


CotD: I can never pass up an Art Davis car­toon. “Mex­i­can Joyride” was spawned by a quick trip to Tijuana the crew took one weekend.

Mex­i­can Joyride (1947) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Daffy Duck, singing “Gau­cho Ser­e­nade,” dri­ves down to Mex­ico for a vaca­tion. After a burn­ing expe­ri­ence with Mex­i­can food, Daffy takes in the bullfights.

As if at a base­ball game, Daffy heck­les the bull (“He’s blind as a bat! Throw the phony out!”). The bull chases the duck around the arena. Daffy tries the “Good Neigh­bor Pol­icy,” offer­ing the bull a “Cig­a­rette? Sparkling cham­pagne? A lit­tle gin rummy, per­haps?” Daffy pulls a hat trick, bet­ting the bull to guess what som­brero he’s hid­ing under. When the bull guesses wrong, he cries over los­ing his money. Daffy vol­un­teers weapons to help him com­mit suicide.

The bull chases the duck with a machine gun into town, where the duck packs his bags and dri­ves home, unaware that the bull is in the back seat.

Daffy-The Com­mando (1943) — Looney Tunes

CotD: One of the fun­ni­est war car­toons from any stu­dio, “Daffy-The Com­mando” fea­tures Daffy tak­ing on– and beat­ing!- Hitler.

Daffy-The Com­mando (1943) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Daffy is a com­mando who para­chutes down into the Ger­man trenches to raise hell. Daffy bedev­ils the Ger­man com­man­der, Von Vul­ture, and his side­kick, lit­tle helmet-with-two-feet Schultz, pro­vid­ing plenty of oppor­tu­ni­ties for anti-Nazi jokes along the way.

After work­ing his mis­chief, Daffy tries to escape in a plane, but is sur­rounded by “a mess of Messer­schmidts” which shoot each other out of the sky after Daffy gets out of the way. Von Vul­ture blows Daffy’s plane to bits with a machine gun, and the com­mando is forced to flee on foot.

He hides in a dark tun­nel, which turns out to be the bar­rel of a long-range can­non. Daffy is shot out of it and lands in Berlin, where Adolf Hitler is shrilly harangu­ing a crowd.

Daffy has the honor of clob­ber­ing the Fuhrer him­self with a mallet.
