The Rabbit of Seville-Amelia D.
After seeing "What's Opera, Doc?" last week, I thought of another opera-esque cartoon involving Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd, "The Rabbit of Seville". This was based off of the overture to Rossini's "The Barber of Seville".
I love many different parts of this cartoon, but the two that stick with me the most are when Bugs is giving Elmer a haircut, and he makes fruit salad on top of his head. The other one is when Bugs "proposes" to Elmer, and the two get married (with Elmer in drag, surprisingly) and then Elmer gets dumped into a wedding cake. It's silly, ridiculous, and everything you'd expect out of a Bugs Bunny animation.
