Naming a music-cool moment in a favorite Warner Bros. cartoon? Way easy. You might cite the "Rabbit of Seville," a short that gave millions of kids their first taste of opera, or you could warble every last word to the theme to "The Flintstones." (The unforgettable melody might even be spinning through your head right now.) And to honor this strong legacy of the studio's music-making prowess, there's a new exhibit filled with color, zazz, and, yes, toons and tunes, too.
The "Get Animated Invasion" is now on view at the Grammy Museum at LA Live, and spending an hour or two visiting the various displays is a must for those who love the intersection of songs, sound, and cartoon style. Make your way to the DTLA music institution before Sunday, Sept. 9, however, for, like a rocket on "The Jetsons," "Get Animated Invasion" will soon zoom away.
