Bugs Bunny; Porky Pig; Cicero; Elmer Fudd; The Wonder Wizard
Synopsis
Porky (on organ), Cicero (on accordion), and Elmer (on a four-string acoustic guitar) have a rock group, and they try out for a man who stages rock festivals, but he is unimpressed. Then Bugs, listening from outside, drops a flowerpot on his own foot and bellows in pain, and the rock festival man loves the sound and says he'll take the group as long as Bugs is on vocals. However, they find that Bugs can't make the sounds without having his toe stomped on, and he wants nothing to do with the group if it requires foot pain. But then Bugs has an idea for a solution involving hypnosis.

Indexer Notes

Elmer says they're going to be the greatest group since the Insufferwubles.
For their rock group costumes, Elmer wears a fringed poncho over his usual clothing plus what looks like a strand of pearls on top of his hat, Cicero has a large green feather sticking out of his sailor cap and what seems to be a small fringed shawl on his shoulders (along with his sailor jacket and bow tie), and Porky has a Stephen Stills look going with a fringed jacket and cowboy hat (which has a large red feather in some panels and not in others). The rock festival man also wears a fringed jacket.
