From Hare To Eternity
'From Hare to Eternity' is a 1996 Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam cartoon in the Looney Tunes series, directed by Chuck Jones. Since this cartoon was produced after the death of legendary Looney Tunes voice actor Mel Blanc, the voice of Bugs is supplied by Greg Burson and the voice of Yosemite Sam is provided by Frank Gorshin. The cartoon is mainly a parody of H.M.S. Pinafore with Sam and Bugs performing many of the songs. It was issued as a tribute to Sam's creator, Friz Freleng, who had died the previous year. It is both the final Bugs Bunny cartoon directed by Chuck Jones and the final Chuck Jones short, ending a career that began in 1938 with The Night Watchman. It is included as a special feature on the DVD for The Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie as well as the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume 1 Blu-ray box-set on the third disc. The character Michigan J. Frog also has a brief cameo in the cartoon.
Famous quotes containing the words eternity and/or hare:
“When I consider the short duration of my life, swallowed up in the eternity before and after, the little space which I fill and even can see, engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces of which I am ignorant and which know me not, I am frightened and am astonished at being here rather than there. For there is no reason why here rather than there, why now rather than then.”
—Blaise Pascal (16231662)
“We watched her jug a hare, once, on television, years ago.... The hare had been half rotted, then cremated, then consumed. If there is a god and she is of the rabbit family, then Saskia will be in deep doo- doo on Judgment Day.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
