Jones, Giovanni

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Pompous opera singer whose rehearsal is interrupted by banjo, harp and tuba recitals from Bugs Bunny in Long Haired Hare (Jones, 1949). This music hater -- and rabbit hater -- briefly gets the upper hand by tying the ears of a certain rabbit to a tree and banging lagomorph skull against branch. This sets off a declaration of war, and a one-sided war it is, with Jones going down to defeat with the remanants of the Hollywood Bowl crushing him.
