"A Corny Concerto" (pronounced "Con-Shir-To") is a [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] short from [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1943,]] directed by Creator/BobClampett, with the story by Creator/FrankTashlin.

The short is a [[AffectionateParody parody]] of Creator/WaltDisney's ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', keeping the musical aspect fully intact, but throws ''Fantasia'''s highbrow attitude right out the window in favor of slapstick and hilarious sight gags (as well as throwing in sound effects and VoiceGrunting). The short is split into two segments, both based on two classic waltzes by Johann Strauss Jr; "Tales from the Vienna Woods", which is centered on one of the very few times WesternAnimation/BugsBunny and WesternAnimation/PorkyPig have shared screentime, and "Blue Danube", which is a retelling of "The Ugly Duckling" with WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck (or a baby version of him at any rate).

This short is in the [[PublicDomainAnimation public domain]] (in fact, if you were a child of the 1980s and 1990s and had a VCR and a family who loved to watch videos, then you may have seen this short on a lot of gray market, public domain videos) and can be viewed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62v8t-QL3ks here]].

!!Tropes Used By This Short:
* AffectionateParody: Of Disney/{{Fantasia}}.
** Also of the WesternAnimation/{{Silly Symphonies}}, in particular the "Blue Danube" sequence, basically a retelling of the Ugly Duckling tale, which had been done twice by Disney in his series. And the name of the cartoon is clearly a take-off on the name of Disney's cartoon series.
* ChildrenInTow: A mother swan and her cygnets in the "Blue Danube" segment.
* CuteButCacophonic: The titular Ugly Duckling.
* DigitalDestruction: The print used on Golden Collection Vol. 2 used digital interlacing, which caused a lot of frame ghosting on it. The print used in Vol. 4 via the "Bugs Bunny Superstar" documentary uses a much better print, however.
* DisneyDeath: Bugs in "Vienna Woods".
* FakingTheDead: Bugs does this.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Conductor Elmer's dickey, which keeps rising against his will.
* GreenAroundTheGills: Bugs after he's supposedly shot.
* MickeyMousing
* MortalWoundReveal: Porky and his Dog discover they're fine; Bugs fakes having a mortal wound.
* MostAnnoyingSound: InUniverse, the swans consider the Ugly Duckling to be this.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Porky, in the usual role of Elmer Fudd, mourns Bugs after Bugs has apparently been shot by an angry chipmunk. (Though Porky didn't actually fire the bullet, he'd been hunting Bugs to begin with.)
* PublicDomainSoundtrack: Two waltzes by Johann Strauss Jr, and the opening title is an excerpt from Tchaikovsky's "Piano Concerto No. 1".
* ShoutOut: Elmer refers to the 1935 song "The Music Goes Round and Round."
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Elmer's dickey.
* TalkingWithSigns: Porky holds up a sign to the audience telling them that he's "hunting that [[SymbolSwearing @!#!]] rabbit", and his dog holds up a sign reading "ditto".
** Bugs also holds up a book on etiquette telling the dog it "ain't polite to point".
* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: Bugs' face turns green (pictured above) after he's been 'shot'.
** In the "Blue Danube" segment, rather through a feathery face, the frightened buzzard turns yellow when he realizes he's about to be done for and flees as the black duckling (possibly Daffy) comes chasing after him.
* StealthPun: Elmer's rising dickey.
* SwansASwimming
* ToothyBird
* VoiceGrunting: The segments don't exactly follow ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''[='=]s presentation, y'know...
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Bugs, who is wearing a brassiere.
* WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath: The buzzard. Though due to RuleOfFunny, he flies not with his wings (which are busy playing a harp), but with a balloon attached to his rear end.
