Luciano Pavarotti, Italian Tenor, Is Dead at 71

September 6, 2007 at 7:36 am (Animation, Cartoon)

The news of Pavarotti’s death will cause shock waves across the world of opera. For the last few years, he had been battling cancer, and this morning, he passed away. Pavarotti will be sorely missed by the Operatic community.

Hearing this news instantly counjoured up an image in my mind, a childhood memory of a cartoon I had watched. A large, animated opera singer, performing in looney toons style. I YouTubed, Googled, Yahoo Searched high and low, and couldn’t find the clip I had in mind, but did discover that most animated spoof operas of the last fifty years seem to use the same track!

If you know of the clip I have in mind, please leave a comment or link… but until then, here is a poor substitute.
