Like chocolate and peanut butter...

Two constants in our home - classical music and Warner Bros. cartoons. If you are at all familiar with both of these, you can see how the two go together so well.

Griff had a concert Sunday and they played Overture to Barber of Seville. We could not get the following out of our minds during the performance. It's pretty bad when you have to resist the urge to break into song during an orchestral performance. :)

I know what you mean. "Beethoven's Wig" has had the same effect on me!

Have a great week!

: )

I'm with you - I can never hear that song and NOT picture Bugs & Elmer. I've been a Looney Toons fan my entire life, so my kids were certainly hooked at an early age.

I used to play classical music and ask them to come up with what the assorted characters might be doing. It was a fun game! :D

I'm completely with you here!! Bugs Bunny definitely, I can't hear Wagner without thinking "Kill the Wabbit" but I even found myself thinking of Howard's End while rehearsing Beethoven's 5th last month. This is why I don't use Themes to Remember, I already has so many associations with classical music, why would I want to know lyrics too?!
