I know what song you are talkin about. It isnt "Powerhouse". It was recently on a commercial on TV. The commercial had a bunch of people working in a kitchen like factory. I will continue to look for this song and I will let you know the name when I find it

If ya like rock,check out the song La Villa Strangiato from the Hemispheres Album. This instramental tune actually uses that very riff from the Bugs Bunny cartoon.

I thought I'd add another source. If you listen to 'Blackstick' by Sidney Bechet it contains the Looney Tune factory song.

'Blackstick' recorded around 1932.

It is powerhouse.  The rift you are looking for is about 1 minute into the song.  People have just reinterpreted it so that the 2nd minute of the song sounds like the begining.

I know what Jandy is asking.  It is the background music to the Soul Coughing song "Bus to Beelzebub".  It is classic "Bugs Bunny working music."  I do not know the name of the song itself, but that should help others find the background music to that song she is talking about.

the answer to the Music in Warner Bros cartoons whe they were in a factory or an assembly line is a piece called "Powerhouse"

I love Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, and can probably answer questions on Bugs Bunny, Daffy, Duck, Elmer Fudd, etc. I`m best on cartoons directed by Chuck Jones, but also have seen several Friz Freleng shorts, as well as Robert McClampett and Tex Avery (including his hilarious MGM stuff). I have not seen every Looney Tunes short, so may have to plead ignorance on some questions--now if Warner Bros. would just hurry up and release them on DVD...


Have seen many of the Looney Tunes shorts, but not nearly all of them.
