    Looney toons famously used classical music
    Wagner's ride of the Valkerie choral "yoho yoho" was the theme for "kill the wabbit" For the Bugs Bunny chase scenes.

    Once at the Boston Symphony Orchestra's Summer festival home, the chorus was given its on stage ready call on the backstage PA system as follows:

    Chorus on stage in five for Kill the Wabbit
    I have never heard what happened next.

    True story. Told as part of this year's anniversary celebration.

    "Are you bluish? You don't look bluish," attributed to poet Roger Joseph McGough, for the Beatles' Yellow Submarine (1968).
