Of Course You Know This Means War, Part One

Giovanni Jones shows his displeasure with Bugs Bunny’s musical skills at the start of Long-Haired Hare.



And that sets up Bugs’ declaration to the audience: “Of course, you know this means war.”



The last drawing may be Ben Washam’s.

More on this great Chuck Jones cartoon tomorrow.

    Little known fact: Giovanni Jones was a caricature of real-life opera star Giovanni Martinelli, a tenor from the 1910's-50's who made his final appearance at the age of 84.
