Saturday Morning Cartoons: Figaro! Figaro! Figaro!

To celebrate the launch of our new Operavore stream Saturday, we’re featuring several animated takes on the aria “Largo al factotum,” from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville.

This well-known piece appears in many cartoons, including "Tom and Jerry," "Woody Woodpecker," "Sylvester the Cat" and even makes a brief appearance in "Family Guy." In the famous “Rabbit of Seville” cartoon, Bugs Bunny sings in the style of this aria but the music used is actually the overture to the opera.
