The Tom and Jerry Concerto

The Tom and Jerry cartoon The Cat Concerto (wiki) has Tom giving a concert performance of Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, which Jerry keeps interrupting. 

The same year (1947) that MGM produced The Cat Concerto, Warner Bros. released a very similar Bugs Bunny cartoon (see below) called Rhapsody Rabbit (wiki), with Bugs against an unnamed mouse. Both shorts used near identical gags, the same piece by Franz Liszt, and had similar endings.

Here's 16 year old pianist Yannie Tan:

Rhapsody Rabbit - I can't find a better version - please share if you find one.
