Am I the only one who likes "Rabbit of Seville" better?
Don't get me wrong, this is a top notch cartoon. It's significant in all the right ways, and it deserves its reputation as a work of art. But its humor just kind of falls a little flat for me at times. It certainly has its moments, but... compared to "Rabbit of Seville," I just don't find it as funny. And the ending... I gotta agree with The Nostalgia Critic
... I don't expect happy endings at opera, but I do in Bugs Bunny cartoons!
I guess what it comes down to is this: What's Opera, Doc succeeds as art. It falls somewhat flat as a Bugs Bunny cartoon. "Rabbit of Seville" proved you can mix culture and comedy; it's just a shame the balance wasn't a little more to my personal liking (because I realize that's what this is) here.

No, you're not. Or at least I find Rabbit of Seville more entertaining (there might be a difference there). Love them both, of course.

I always liked this one better, though they're both exceptionally well-made.

I like "Rabbit of Seville" better too, because it is more original, and keeps Elmer and bugs more in character, and the slapstick is a little faster paced. I'd also like to note that in a lot of cartoons, Opera is depicted by a performer standing on a bare stage, singing in a tuxedo—these cartoons depict Opera with costumes and backdrops.
