What's Up Doc?
Tracing its origins right back to the golden age of animation, when Warner Brothers' Looney Tunes first introduced the world to a host of beloved characters including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Marvin the Martian and Elmer Fudd, the weekend ritual of cartoons and cereal on a Saturday has become a bonafide tradition for children and adults alike. Let the kids stay up late this time and treat them to a special live Looney Tunes screening with a live score by the New York Philarmonic and special guest conductor George Daugherty.
Inspired by Walt Disneys Silly Symphonies series, Looney Tunes used music to pull off some of the most side-splittingly-funny gags in animated history, using artful, carefully-timed orchestral arrangements to punctuate every memorable hi-jink, as well as excerpts of classical pieces. The man behind their scores was Carl W. Stalling, a prolific composer who had a huge hand in introducing multiple generations of youngsters to the unbridled joy of classical music.
