Classical Musicians React to Violin in Cartoons

Classical Musicians React to Violin in Cartoons

What are we filming again? Cartoons! – Oh yeah, cartoons.
– Cartoons! So recently we compiled a lot of videos with cartoons, with violin playing. Now it’s time to place our review of these cartoons, and how they portray violins in these episodes. Let’s watch! First one! Pink Panther. Old school! Whoa. Is that a bass? – Dude, that bass has like…7 strings.
– It’s huge…*chuckles* Yeah, lots of strings. – And it’s got 3 pegs.
– Yeah. It’s really artistic, how they drew it, but the strings are way off. But, the music stand looks as unstable as a realistic one. *chuckles* Yeah! Spot on! Okay. – Alright, guys…straight up, like… *chuckles*
– Guys, yeah, this is… I mean, I don’t know, but my mom always said, “If you want riches and fame, then be doctor!” Be doctor! Yeah! Sheet music doesn’t have time signature. Come on, guys! Come on! Whoa. – At least the down and up bows kinda matched, right?
– Yeah, that was pretty good. They were matching the music. Nice! Good job! Concert hall. *snickers* So formal. – *gasp*
– Oof! Oh no! Got rejected. – I mean, that was a great tuning session.
– *snickers* What was that? *mimics orchestra tuning* – Yeah—
– I mean that’s what public—the public hears. I get the feeling of deliberately making it not accurate. Look at the setup of the orchestra. – It’s so far from the conductor, right?
– Yeah. And then the basses on both sides. Yeah! It’s for artistic purposes, guys! Either that, or the illustrator/animator needs to watch some more TwoSet Violin. *chuckles* – Yeah.
– Very accurate. – Yeah.
– *laughs* I love this already. – But there’ two lines—
– Two lines? Then why’s the first line got nothing there? Yeah. Why is the first line empty? *sings line* – Really off…
– This is wrong, but it’s kind of like weirdly still accurate. And also, the artist, they like using this “F”… …swirly thing. It was on the bass as well. – And it was on the um, lessons…
– …the stand as well. – Yeah, the…
– The stand as well. Artistic motif. Whoa! Artistic motif! *coughs* *clears throat* *light coughing* *loud coughing* *coughing* *laughs* Where was this…made? 19… I don’t know. They got that right. Before the conductor starts, when people are making noise, like… Except maybe not the gun? Yeah, no guns guys. No violence. We don’t condone violence. It’s so trippy. It’s [the] wrong parts…! Wrong…wrong instrumentation. – Yeah, it’s trumpets…!
– Yeah. – It’s very trippy. It’s like a parallel universe.
– Uh-huh. Oh, here we go. – He’s the only violinist.
– Yeah, violin solo, here we go. I mean, I guess that happens, – but these days people have a folder.
– Yeah, yeah…! That’s a magic trick! “Oh my god. You have more than one paper…!” It’s pretty funny though. Dude, that was so trippy! It was the same rhythm, the… *mimics rhythm* *laughs* Wow. Wait. Why is this in a concert? – I don’t know, but I loved it. This is so awesome.
– Why is this in a concert? Yeah, it’s so random. – Why is he checking the bow…
– I don’t know… Oh… – Did it just shoot his eye?!
– Yeah. Got him back. Next one. What’ll it take to get our friend back? Sorry, but I hold all the cards here. There’s nothing you can do. Now, if you’ll just sign this fiddle contest waiver. Wait, what fiddle contest? *chuckles* *groan* The Fairness in Hell Act of 2275, requires me to inform you that if you can best me in a fiddle contest, you win back Bender’s soul. As well as a solid gold fiddle. Wouldn’t a solid gold fiddle weigh hundreds of pounds and sound crummy? Well, it’s mostly for show. – Ohhhh, he said it!!!
– OHHHHHHH!!!!! “It’s mostly for show!’ – Oh, sacrilegious boi should’ve watched Futurama!
– Yeah! If you can best the devil, in like a violin fiddle competition, – you get your soul back.
– Yeah. – Guys just warning you to practice!
– I know! Do you know how to play the fiddle? No, do you? No! But I used to play the drums. They’re sorta similar. What happens if we lose? You’ll only win a smaller silver fiddle. Also, I guess I’ll kill one of you… – Him.
– *gasp* – We’ll do it!
– *gasp* Very well, then. Beat this! *laughs* Well, we’re doomed. Wow! Was that… – It’s the Bazzini!
– The Bazzini! – It’s based on Bazzini!
– Oh, goblin! – Yeah, “Dance of the Goblin”!
– Oh it is a goblin! Yeah! – Oh, wow…!
– It’s actually…genius. – “Dance of the Goblin”, the goblin!
– It’s a legit reference. That’s so cool. Your turn! *clears throat* – Wrong side, girl.
– Oh, no. Time for the drum solo! Run! *snickering* They made a point. – That’s what gold violins are used for, right?
– Yes, yeah. That’s what they’re supposed to be used for. Good one, Futurama. – Is that Futurama?
– Yeah. It’s so cool, when like… …cartoons or whatever, – put in that a little bit of effort to make it realistic.
– Yeah. – Yeah, like it’s an actual violin piece…
– Dance of the Goblin… – They pay out golden fiddles…
– Yeah. Very subtle, very clever. Ohh look! It’s me!! Ed, Edd n Eddy! I remember this too. – Yeah, that’s me learning the violin.
– Wow, that looks like you. *snickers* Ed, check out these pits! Nice carpet, Eddy! Now, let us see. Position and pose starts by fanning your toes, and placing your left foot right. Do you do that when you play violin? Not really. I didn’t know you played an instrument. In my mom’s dreams, I can! What’s Ed doing with a ukulele? That’s a violin, Eddy. (Both) Wow! “That’s a violin, Eddy!” Don’t do that with your violin, Eddy. *snickers* Musical tour de force, whose delicate tone can emit a diverse range of emotions. That’s me! *laughs* “It’s an E!” E! E!!! Eehhh!!! With a little practice… D! Violins are for sissies! – Thank you!
– Hey! I’m sure you’ll agree Niccolo Paganini is no sissy, Eddy. That’s right. Paganini is not a sissy, guys. – Do you know his story, he worked real hard…
– Yeah. …to make his fame happen, and music for everyone to play. Very good, Ed. But more allegro, sprightlier if you will. Woo hoo, that’s a real toe-tapper, Ed! It’s such a random movie… …or it’s an episode. Cartoons have changed. – So much though.
– A lot. Alright, next one, “The Simpsons”! – And it’s PG!
– *laughs* That’s some subtle, subtle stuff that – they’re putting in a kid’s show.
– Man those guys are just messing around Okay, children. Everyone pick an instrument. Doesn’t matter which one. Everyone’s gonna be bad. Ahh, who cares. I’m union. *chuckles* Told you!! I am not playing an instrument! You’re playing an instrument! Mom! Music is made by computers, not rusty metal you put in your…mouth! Look, your mom thinks that forcing you to do music in school will somehow make you into a different person, and we all know you are, which it won’t, so just do it, or I’ll cut all your shorts into skirts. Homer, you’re so rough! Fine! What about this stupid thing? Ahh! Oh! Wah! Ugh! *squeal* Gah! *gasp* Why don’t you try this clarinet? It’s like the recorder, but cooler. Ohhhh…! – Savage…! Lisa!
– Shots fired against the recorder community! She’s a smart one, no? *squealing* What about this hobo guitar? (both) Hobo guitar… – Welcome to TwoSet Hobo Guitar, guys!
– Yeah! *laughs* If only you can use a violin like that! Legolas! *laughs* And… Here’s the form which says you’re responsible. He picked the violin. – Yeah! Woo!
– The hobo guitar, yeah! Bart! – Good choice, Bart!
– Woo! Can I just say the background… Natural? Sharp? They got it right. That’s awesome. – If you go back—
– And there’s Bach, in the background! Yeah…! So…if I break the violin, Homer has to pay? Homer, has to pay?! The school is lending your son an instrument that’s worth $430. *gasp* *shriek* Violin! You and me are gonna make beautiful music together. Oh! *laughs* Ohh!!!! Oh no!!!! – No…!
– *incoherent shrieking* This is torture! *nervous laughing* *laughs* What is he doing…?! – Oh no!
– Look at Homer! Dude he got gassed! – That is so messed up!
– It’s not funny! That’s not funny! That is so messed up for a cartoon! Oh, no! *chuckles* Bart? Bart? $430 violin? If the beer’s in a frosted mug, you’re not an alcoholic, you’re an aficionado. *shriek* Hello, father. Thank you for taking responsibility for this lovely instrument. I trust you find its music… …soothing! Come on, dude! Just leave me alone! – I’m a good man!
– *laughs* – I’ve got kids!
– *laughs* *laughs* What…?! I’ve been too hard on you. Here you go! Catch! *chuckles* He dropped the beer! *evil chuckle* You! You! I took you into my home, and you’ve stolen everything from me! You know what this is? It’s me playing the world’s smallest violin! Heh heh heh heh. *shriek* I’m free! I’m free!!! I’m finally free!!! Where are you going? To do to my brain what I just did to your dreams, for our son! Wow. Was Simpsons always this messed—dark? I never knew, I watched this as a kid! – Yeah…! I don’t know, but I think so.
– Was it always this dark? It was just funny! I’m gonna do to my brain what I did–just did (both) to your son’s dreams…?! Alright guys, so I hope you’ve enjoyed cartoons’… …portrayal of violin. I mean…I’ll admit they’re pretty funny. – I am very impressed, actually.
– Yeah. – The Futurama one was so good.
– So good. – I loved it.
– Gold violin even though it sounds crap. Come on cartoon people, make more violin episodes! Yeah, yeah! Thank you so much for watching! Please subscribe! See you guys.

  39. Futurama and The Simpson's where never ment for kids.

  50. i just noticed that the way homer screams in 10:45 matches that one part of beethoven 5th symphony

  51. Violin is just a mini acoustic bass checkmate.

  52. he stopped a virus

  53. 5:15 I'm pretty sure that was a "The devil went down to Georgia" refrence

  54. the old simpsons are just so much better.

  55. at 11:49 you can see the bridge is inverted O.O Like the one your local luthier did in one episode XD

  56. 5:05 does anyone else get “the devil went down to Georgia” reference?

  57. Ok, since you guys didn't get that reference in Futurama, I'm gonna demand you now react to The Devil Went Down to Georgia

  58. damn simpsons is dark whAt how did i never notice this before hhaahaha

  62. I know it's an old video, but does anybody know the name of the piece on 8:14? It sounds so freaking familiar

    Edit: nevermind, I figured it out. (It's Paganini's La Campanella)

  63. 3:15 "We don't condole Violins?" XD!!!

  64. anyone 2020?

    And am I the only one who thinks it's weird to see Eddy left and Brett right?

  67. 5:31 Unicorn Horn growing

  68. Pink pattern

    N O S T A LG A

  69. Btw that violin’s bridge is wonky as frick. It curves down and it doesn’t look like a wooden bridge and it’s uneven

  70. where is the bridge tho

  71. "The simpsons sucks, its been running for as long as have been alive, they've run out of material" My parents say to me back when I was maybe 13, who had yet to see ANY of the show!

  72. You guys are awesome! 1st video I have seen from you guys. Now to start my journey of watching them all ^_^♡

  73. Pink Panther be copying Rhapsody Rabbit's joke of Bugs shooting someone in the audience 22 years later

  74. Lol, fiddle contest with the 😈 "that's why you need to practice"lol

  75. Please react to Abominable, the main character plays violin and apparently the violin is magical

  76. when eddy did that at 0:15 — my.. i- hahaha myheartraced

  77. 3:18 song?

  78. im a band boi
    i play trombone
    but basically
    all band kids
    are twoset fans

  79. Isn’t the “Devil went down to Georgia” an American reference ? ((^-^)/)

  80. 6:02 that’s not how you hold a fiddle

  81. Why do they sound like John Lennon?

  82. You guys are funny! And I want that "I need to practice" t shirt :). Of course…I need to practice, too! I play the harp.

  83. ha! they still think simpson is for children

  84. “We don’t condone violence”

    You condone violins

  85. Did a discoloured panther weaponise the frog of the bow

  86. The pink panther part where they're all lined up is part of a military inspection. Where the commander is inspecting the weapon and uniform of the troops. In this case the bow is their weapon, conductor is looking "down the barrel" to ensure it's clean, and pink panther's "weapon" obviously was loaded and it blew up in the conductor's face.

  87. Everyone: oh wow it’s futurama. Me: The devil went down to Georgia reference

  88. Yall should really change your channel name to two set hobo guitar 🤣

  89. Listen to The Devil Went Down to Georgia – Charlie Daniels Band

  90. Hobo guitar

  91. 10:32 So Bach is in the BACH?

    kill me

  92. I havent seen pink panther since I was like 10 this is so weird

  93. 10:50 8 fine tuners

  94. "what about this hobo guitar?"

  95. No violence, only violins

  96. My teacher: it's your turn;
    Me: 6:31

  97. I'm just dumbfounded how insane the reactions to the jokes in the cartoons are, like…. edgy humour is pretty casual stuff nowadays, it's not as cool or new or provocative to have dark humour.

  98. I will be shocked if they will start watching anime with violin. 🤯

  99. Simpson is a kid show? You kids need to watch mr pickles.

  100. I'm glad to watch this at 2 AM when no-one can hear me cracking up. That was hilarious.
