World’s Largest Cartoon Screening

World's Largest Cartoon Screening

Animation Scoop reader Jess Price sent in this photo (above) from the cartoon screening he attended last night: Chuck Jones’ 1957 Bugs Bunny cartoon What’s Opera Doc? on the world’s largest high-definition screen.

Jess wrote, saying, “I’m always sad I’m nowhere near Los Angeles for all the great screenings you promote. Today, however, I was able to see the world’s largest cartoon screening at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

“Attached is a photo of “What’s Opera Doc?” on a screen measuring 72′ high by 160′ wide (equaling 11,520 square feet) — stretching some 60 yards over the football field below.”

At 6:45 PM, prior to a live simulcast of Puccini’s Turandot at Cowboys Stadium, the Dallas Opera presented “what is believed to be the world’s largest cartoon screening (based on screen size): Warner Brothers classic masterpiece, What’s Opera, Doc? starring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd and voted the #1 cartoon ever produced (in 1994, by a thousand members of the animation field).”

Next year, Price says, “they announced they’re going to try to show Rabbit of Seville“.
