What's Opera, Doc? - 1957

Oh, Brunhilde, you're so wuv-wee!

    Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd

    July 6, 1957

    Directed by Chuck Jones - Story by Michael Maltese - Animation by Ken Harris, Richard Thompson, and Abe Levitow - Layouts by Maurice Noble - Effects Animation by Harry Love - Film Editor: Treg Brown - Voice Characterization by Mel Blanc - Musical Direction by Milt Franklyn - Song "Return My Love" Lyrics by Michael Maltese

    Matching and mis-matching of Wagner to Warners. Elmer is the hunter as the demigod Siegried, Bugs in drag and blonde wig as the Valkyrie Brunhilde atop an obese horse.
Best Moment:
    The love song that Bugs and Elmer sing to each other (if it weren't so ludicrous, it would be a lovely song):
      Elmer: Return my wuv, A wonging burns deep inside me.
      Bugs: Retoin my love, I want you always beside me.
      Elmer: Wuv like ours must be
      Bugs: Made for you and for me
      Duet: Return, won't you return my love. All my love is yours!
