I'm looking for a video or audio clipping of an old Cartoon Network
advertisement. I wonder if anyone could help.
About seven or eight years back, there was an short (1 min?)
advertisement for Cartoon Network, that used to run on Cartoon
Network, in which a creature (a dog?) in opera coat-tails would sing a
Cartoon Network-version of Mozart's Figaro (I think). I don't remember
the words very well, but it was mostly the names of a great number of
cartoon characters strung together -- here are some parts that I do
remember, though perhaps not verbatim: "... there's fred and wilma,
barney and betty...", mentions of magilla gorilla, wally gator, the
jetsons (I think) and ends with "the cartoon network, the cartoon
network, home of the top toon stars", during which time the audience
throws all kinds of stuff at the singing animal.
I'd like to get hold of an audio or video clip of this -- preferably
video, of course, but I realize that may be more difficult. It used to
be shown a great deal on Cartoon Network. I'm sorry I don't have any
more information about the song itself, but it's been a long time
since I've seen this particular ad, and all I can remember are sketchy
details. But if anyone _has_ seen it, I doubt that they would forget

tedehrich-ga, thanks for the comment, but no, I'm _not_ looking for a
particular cartoon, as such -- I'm looking for a Cartoon Network ad.
If I remember right, What's Opera, Doc is a Bugs Bunny cartoon, and
while Bugs Bunny possibly makes some sort of an appearance in the ad
I'm looking for (I think), the ad has more of Hanna Barbera characters
than Warner Bros or Loonie Toons characters, I think.
