    What's Opera, Doc? III Chuck Jones Limited Edition #22 of 500 (Warner Brothers, 1988). Considered to be one of Warner Brothers Studio's best cartoon shorts ever, What's Opera Doc (1957) parodies Richard Wagner's operatic cycle, The Ring of the Nibelung, in a brilliant seven-minute cartoon. With Elmer Fudd singing "...Kill da wabbit, kill da wabbit!" the cartoon was both hilarious and dramatic all at once and the Maurice Noble backgrounds made it visually stunning. Chuck Jones' genius shines through in the limited edition art that he created to commemorate this classic. This is edition 22/500 and is signed by Jones (1912 - 2002). It was an instant sell-out back in 1988. The cel size is 13.5" x 15.5" and is matted and framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 12.75" x 15" and a frame measuring 20.75" x 23.75". Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
