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?

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!

MeTV Friday Night Movie Quiz

Adventure, Romance, Sci-fi
You're a wonderer. Someone who likes to think about life not only now but in the past or future. You have devised a great idea and turned it into some sort of invention. Explaining to others your thoughts on such a device. ridiculed, laughed at and scorned. You have a story to tell. An unimaginable one. You will see and hear it here on screen. Only one needs to guess for all to watch. Wouldn't be wonderful if one could do such things? The lead actor played in his last movie in 2009. Movie is not in this Century.

Congratulations on your win last week. I got to the room like 1 or 2 minutes past the hour and you had already guessed the correct answer. I am going to try to make it this week and get there a few minutes early. Lol.

I usually send out the invites by Friday early afternoon. That is when I locate a place to show it. Tend to post it at a location that most of the normal traffic has died down. It will be around 10 P.M. CT. Most are finished with their dinner and such. When I first started at 8:30-9 P.M. some on the West Coast were just cleaning up after their meals (6:30-7). You may come just to watch or conversation with others. Just have fun. End up with movies and entertainment. Crack a joke or two, jest and even throw me under the bus a tad.
