What's Opera, Doc?

And now for something completely different. (Why? Because it's time for something a wee bit lighthearted, and also just because we can.)

Possibly the greatest cartoon ever made. Certainly one of the greatest classical-music-parody cartoons ever made.

What a coincidence. There was a documentary on SkyARTS just last night on Chuck Jones so I spent more time this viewing looking at the backgrounds than the action. Fascinating stuff.

I don't know if you ever watched a show called Farscape - a very off-the-wall science fiction show that took no prisoners - but one of the episodes of the show presented all the characters as a Chuck Jones cartoon - wonderful.

I loved Farscape, one of my favorite shows while it was on. Completely off the wall at times.

I also have a terrific documentary about Chuck Jones on DVD, "Extremes & Inbetweens: A life in animation." Highly recommended.
