Email a Friend

“Anitra’s Dance” from Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt appeared in a 1996 episode of the Cartoon Network's "What a Cartoon!" show called "Tales of Worm Paranoia."

There are many other musical references too, including Mussorgsky's A Night on Bald Mountain, Mendelssohn's “Spring Song” from Songs Without Words, Gounod’s Funeral March of a Marionette, and Wagner’s Overture to The Flying Dutchman. You'll find even more if you listen carefully!
