Do you know what these Looney Tunes titles are referencing?

These puns and parodies were taken from books, TV shows, poems and more!

 

For being "lowbrow" slapstick cartoons, Looney Tunes shorts often aimed high with their references. Sometimes there were quick jokes, and at other times full-on parodies of what Bugs might call "hoity-toity" art like poetry and opera.

Here are some cartoons that all have puns or parodies in their titles. Can you tell what each one is referencing?

11 out of 12. Didn't realize Life With Father was a memoir before it was anything else. Got through the rest, no problem.

8/12, terrible, because I love me some Looney Tunes. 😁

10/12 but you played fast & loose with # 9 as I believe it started as a novella "Armageddon 2419" first published in Amazing Stories in 1928.

#4 stumped me because I just saw Brigadoon and linked it (wrongly ) to that.

I got 9 out of 12 right. Some of these were pretty tough! I had to guess on a few of them. Great quiz!
