The 2015 Canada $30 Looney Tunes - The Rabbit of Seville 2oz. Fine Silver pays tribute to a classic Looney Tunes cartoon and its two notable characters: Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. It comes with a design that depicts a scene from a scene from The Rabbit of Seville. The reverse side comes with images of the two characters while the obverse side comes with an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

A hapless hunter who is easily duped, Elmer J. Fudd is the perfect foil to Bugs Bunny’s easy-going demeanour and wily antics. Starting with Bugs Bunny’s first appearance in 1940, the two have shared a long history of antagonizing one another that plays out to great laughs in many cartoons together—but none quite as beloved and iconic as the animated masterpiece The Rabbit of Seville, which is depicted on this coin’s reverse.

Released in theatres on December 16, 1950, The Rabbit of Seville was the first Looney Tunes short to parody a classic opera—but wouldn’t be the last! The story takes place at the Hollywood Bowl; pursued by Elmer Fudd, Bugs Bunny tries to elude the hunter by tricking him into venturing on-stage just before a staged production of Rossini’s most famous opera, The Barber of Seville. Through escalating gags and barbershop antics that could only exist in the imagination, Bugs takes control and stages his own version of the opera—at Elmer’s expense, of course.
