This one was named one of the top cartoons of all time. I agree with that, but it's not my favorite.
I think this one is better: Rabbit of Seville
[Blogmeister's note: Did you know that there are no full clips of the Rabbit of Seville available on Youtube? Why? Apparently Warner Brothers has demanded that all of them be removed (or have the posters remove the original audio track). I find it interesting that they have not done the same thing with What's Opera, Doc.
WTF? I mean, c'mon. Who hasn't seen these cartoons? And they're available on the Looney Tunes Golden Collections DVDs if you really want to own them. (I have volumes 1-4, thankyouverymuch!) Why demand that they be taken down from Youtube?]
Anyway, Chuck Jones *was* a genius... and Looney Tunes were never intended for kids.

Let me cut your mop,
Let me shave your crop,
Don't look so perplexed,
Why must you be vexed?
Can't you see you're next
you're so next...."
