EVEN ELMER FUDD IS REMORSEFUL

A Lenten Example

In the classic Bugs Bunny episode, What's Opera Doc, based on several operas by Richard Wagner, Elmer breaks the "Thou shalt not kill" commandment (he "killed the wabbit"), then regrets his actions.

"Magic Helmet!"

Peace,
BMP

PS: Gotta love the pregnant horse Bugs (in drag) rides in on about halfway through.

A classic. It has been voted the funniest cartoon of all time, and according to Chuck Jones, it very nearly was never made. The animators hid what they were doing from the studio bosses.

While it has been voted the best of all time, I personally have one I like a little better:

"Kill the Wabbit!!!!"

I love it. It is 1 of my favorite BB cartoons.(The Rabbit of Seville is another.

& it gets Wagnerian Opera down to a bearable lengthe.

Pregnant?

I thought that big ol' white horse was just fat...

Great cartoon, though.
