Classic Cartoons #1 - What's Opera Doc?
To coincide with our first 'Bitesized Biography', dedicated to Looney Tunes legend, Chuck Jones, it seemed only fitting for the first 'Classic Cartoon' to be one of his. So, to launch our second new feature, I give you What's Opera Doc?. Arguably one of the greatest cartoons, possibly the best Looney Tunes cartoon, and definitely Bugs Bunny's finest, the devilishly clever, zany and witty What's Opera Doc? - a fantastic take on opera and of the normal Looney Tunes formula - was the first cartoon short to be inducted, in 1992, into the National Film Registry, proving that both Jones, and his work are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
