    Talking BUGS BUNNY'S ridiculous songs... APPRECIATE!

    [font=Times]LONG HAIRED HARE[/font]
    [font=Times](Jones-1949)[/font]

    (Bugs is playing a banjo)
    What do they do on a rainy night in Rio
    Rinky dinky dink
    What do they do when there is no starry sky
    Oh a starry sky
    Where do they go when they can't go for a walk
    Do they stay home and talk
    Or do they sit and sigh, igh-de-igh
    (interrupted by Giovanni Jones practicing his opera singing)
    (Jones) What do they do in Mississippi
    When skies are drippy
    (Bugs) And what do they do in Tiajuana
    When they want to snuggle tight
    Well....
    (Bugs has a harp this time)
    She's a fancy stepper when she dances
    Go and see her as she kippers and prances
    My gal don't do much talking
    Dances even when she's walking
    (Jones ad libs) One and two and three and four she dances all day long
    (Bugs) Oh my gal is a high part stepper
    Ginger with salt and pepper
    She's a fancy stepper when she dances
    Go and see her as she kippers and prances


    [font=Times]RABBIT OF SEVILLE[/font]

    How do??
    Welcome to my shop, let me cut your mop, let me shave your crop
    Daintily, daintily
    Hey you!!
    Don't look so perplexed, why must you be vexed, can't you see you're next
    Yes you're next, you're so next
    How about a nice close shave
    Teach your whiskers to behave
    Lots of lather lots of soap
    Please hold still don't be a dope
    Now we're ready for the scraping
    There's no use to try escaping
    Yell & scream & rant & rave
    It's no use you need a shave
    (ooh ouch ouch ooh ouch ooh ooh ouch)
    There, you're nice and clean
    Although you're face looks like it might have gone through a machine
    Oh, wait until I get that rabbit
    What would you want with a rabbit
    Can't you see that I'm much sweeter
    I'm your little senorita
    You are my type of guy
    Let me straighten your tie
    And I shall dance for you

    I love those.

    Actually, I have a Bugs Bunny on Broadway CD and Rabbit of Seville is on it. I should show it to my daughter, she really likes Bugs...but as far as "classic" cartoons go, I think she is more of a Tom & Jerry and Scooby Doo fan.

    One of the reasons I love classical music today is due to those cartoons. I saw the "Rabbit of Seville" recently on Cartoon Network. Many Tom & Jerry episodes had classical scores as well.

    They probably did it because the music is in the public domain. Don't have to pay any royalties to anyone

    Talking

    There's a really interesting documentary on one of the DVD sets. They reveal that the original Merrie Melodies cartoons were created to advertise Warner's music catalogue holdings. Most of the songs that you hear in the Looney Tunes cartoons were either owned by them or were public domain.

    I have that Bugs on Broadway CD and was listening to it today, which is what led me to posting this. I also have two Carl Stalling discs that are simply amazing to listen to!

    Good stuff there JP! I haven't watched those cartoons in a long long time, that brings up some good memories.

    You just have to appreciate the sheer mayhem of these cartoons. They were clever and smart and didn't require 30 minutes to get to the point. I think that a lot of today's cartoon, while good in many cases, completely miss the point of how less is clearly more.

    I used to watch all the old toons as a kid thanks to my insane uncle who worshipped Wil E Coyote and roadrunner. Daffy duck has always been my favourite. Daffy pited against Bugs was always a great laugh. Tom and Jerry are great. those original toons blast modern toons out of the water. Chuck Jones and Tex Avery have left the world a ripe feast of entertainment. They basically wrote the book on every sight and audio gag.

    No doubt!!!! I spent a good bit of the last couple days just watching 5 shorts from each disc. Good fun!!

    Tex Avery practically makes me pee. GREAT sight gags in those old catroons.

    I don't care for Tex Avery myself. He totally ripped off Jim Carrey's character in The Mask.
    Tommy, close your eyes.
