Saturday Morning Cartoons: Bugs Bunny Wields a Mighty Baton

Email a Friend

It’s a good thing Bugs Bunny wasn’t conducting this past Tuesday’s New York Philharmonic concert (aka ringtone-gate). Maestro Bugs Bunny, as seen in the 1959 Warner Brothers cartoon Baton Bunny, won’t even tolerate a coughing audience member. (Although, it’s a wardrobe malfunction and an annoying fly that finally make Bugs lose his cool.)

The piece features Bugs leading the Warner Bros. Symphony Orchestra in Franz von Suppe's overture, Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna.
