I love a good lowbrow pop-culture reference, but back in the day, the touchstones were high-art masterpieces.  

I love that my first exposures to opera and literary references came from Bugs Bunny, Charlie Brown, and for example, this classic clip of Shakespeare’s Hamlet mashed-up wtih Bizet’s Carmen courtesy of Gilligan’s Island.
