Opera star Giovanni Jones is trying to rehearse but Bugs is singing another tune while playing his banjo, then his harp, then his tuba. Jones destroys the instruments over Bugs' head, and, of course, "this means war." Revenge takes place when Bugs, as white-maned "Leopold", conducts Jones' Hollywood Bowl concert.Written by

One of the reasons the animators likely felt a cartoon audience would recognize Bugs is masquerading as Leopold Stokowski was because Stokowski had appeared prominently in the Disney animated classic Fantasia (1940) nine years before, repeatedly interacting with Mickey Mouse as well as conducting the symphony in the film.

Apparenty sometimes aired without a sequence in which Bugs, dressed up as a bobby-soxer, tricks the opera singer into signing an autograph book with a stick of dynamite. See more »
Having just got the "Loony Tunes Golden Collection"(which i HIGHLY recommend, by the way), I'm going to try to comment on most if not all of the cartoons individually. As such the starting statement might seem redundant for those whom read multiple reviews of them, for this i apologize.
Bugs finds a new enemy in Opera singer,Giovanni Jones, when his banjo playing disgruntles the guy. Giovanni gets the first few punches in, but Bugs pays him back in spades later that night. Very funny. The DVD has commentary by Historian Micheal Barrier on this short.
