You will love one of the most infamous operatic performances in this very particular cartoon which belongs to the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in the 1950s.


Early 1980s, a departmental common room in a British university. A mob of undergraduates is waiting for a group of prospective students to arrive for an open day event and interviews, and mentor them during the day. This cartoon plays on TV.
Several hours later, the visitors are in the common room too, watching an official university video. The strains of Flight of the Valkyries plays in the background. The visitors are bemused, then amused, by their hosts singing "Kill the wabbit" as one body. Study applications increase by 20% on the previous year.
