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?

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.

I thought they would be on. Looks like it was me vs me. 🤔

Btw good clips tonight. The dancers are amazing. How do they do it? But I have to say as a kid, I loved those beach movies with Frankie and Annette, so that was my fav.
Yes. That dancing was amazing. It is catchy and you want to move too. Good workout video also. It might be just you. I have not heard from AWL all week and did get a like from LMNN earlier. Moody posted to me the other day they were in Chicago. I thought other 2 or 3 might show but sometimes Friday nights are get out of the house night.
A quiet night.
Yep. Can even hear the vultures scurrying and bats flapping Well I thank you for coming and congratulants on winning the movie quiz. We will have hopefully a full house in the coming weeks.

P.S In Willy Wonka and The Chocolate factory, Willy Wonka says “Bubbles, bubbles everywhere, but not a drop to drink” when he shows them the Fizzy Lifting Drinks.

Then in the end when they ask about Charlie's lifetime supply of chocolate. " You stole Fizzy Lifting Drinks. You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized, so you get NOTHING! YOU LOSE! GOOD DAY, SIR". Love that movie.

10/12 Missed #9 which I thought was a movie serial, and #10.
I don't see your guess within the quiz itself, but still want to congratulate you on your win! Excellent! The Time Machine was a great movie in it's day. I don't how Texasluva finds these gems. He must be perusing the Archive day and night.
Thanks a lot. It’s fun movie.
