    What's Opera, Doc? Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1957). "Oh Bwunnhilde, you're so wuv-wy" "Yes I know it... I can't help it!" sing Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny in this classic animation masterpiece. This is a historic original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Elmer Fudd as Siegfried (voiced by Arthur Q. Bryan) and Bugs Bunny as Brunnhilde (voiced by Mel Blanc). This is from the classic ballet dance sequence and can be seen at about the 3:40 mark. This cartoon was rated #1 in Jerry Beck's book The 50 Greatest Cartoons. Directed by Chuck Jones, written by Mike Maltese, and layouts and art direction from Maurice Noble, Jones said, "For sheer production quality, magnificent music, and wonderful animation, this was our most elaborate and satisfying production." This was the first cartoon to be recognized by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Amazing image of 6", with #45 written on the bottom right corner. Paint is cracking and there is some minor paint loss; restoration is required. This is a true piece of animation history! Very Good condition.
