Saturday Morning Cartoons



When I first started posting these Saturday Morning Cartoons, I said I was doing it because you can't help but feel like kids these days are really missing out on something by not being exposed to the brilliance of Loony Toons, Tom and Jerry, and so on.

And this particular short may represent what I was talking about better than just about any other. It's pure, unadulterated creative genius.

From 1949, here's Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd in Rabbit of Seville.

I was hoping you were going to get around to posting this one. Absolute genius. The tonic! The tiny lawnmower! The mental picture forever burned into my brain when I hear this piece of music! The resulting tittering!

Awesomeness.

The chair bit still gets me.
And seeing Elmer in drag with the wedding bit.
