Despite demand for the song, Rice stopped performing the song live in 2004, prompting Rice to write an article for his own official website entitled "Eulogy For A Song About Cartoons." In the article Rice explains that his misunderstood intention in writing the song/skit was to mock the commercial-Christian tendency to "make a Christian version of everything."
Rice states, "I was hoping everyone would get the satire, but they missed the satire, and embraced the song as legit.” This legitimizing of the song, evidence of his fans' misunderstanding of the purpose of the song/skit, frustrated Rice to the point of eliminating the song from his live performances, as well as refusal to discuss the song in interviews on the air.
In 2004, Rice decided to stop playing the song at concerts. He has kept to his decision, despite popular demand for the song, and despite the fact that Christian radio stations continue to air the song frequently.
The concept originated in the Middle Ages and first described a preparatory drawing for a piece of art, such as a painting, fresco, tapestry, or stained glass window. In the 19th century, it came to refer to humorous illustrations in magazines and newspapers, and after the early 20th century, it referred to comic strips and animated films.
A cartoon (from Italian:cartone and Dutch:karton—words describing strong, heavy paper or pasteboard) is a full-size drawing made on sturdy paper as a study or modello for a painting, stained glass or tapestry. Cartoons were typically used in the production of frescoes, to accurately link the component parts of the composition when painted on damp plaster over a series of days (giornate).
A song is a single (and often standalone) work of music intended to be sung by the human voice with distinct and fixed pitches and patterns using sound and silence and a variety of forms that often include the repetition of sections. Written words created specifically for music or for which music is specifically created, are called lyrics. If a pre-existing poem is set to composed music in classical music it is an art song. Songs that are sung on repeated pitches without distinct contours and patterns that rise and fall are called chants. Songs in a simple style that are learned informally are often referred to as folk songs. Songs that are composed for professional singers are called popular songs. These songs, which have broad appeal, are often composed by professional songwriters, composers and lyricists. Art songs are composed by trained classical composers for concert performances. Songs are performed live and recorded. Songs may also appear in plays, musical theatre, stage shows of any form, and within operas.
... going on in the Middle East, and ISIS in particular, just how brutal it’s gotten over there.” The title of the song actually comes from an old Bugs Bunny cartoon, “Ali Baba Bunny.” Holland said, “No one knows what it is except for 50-year-old guys, but it was a great cartoon.”.
It’s a musical adaptation of the short 1970s children’s cartoons, bouncing from song to song without too much dialogue between. It seemed appropriate for multiple reasons — it’s based on the now-50-year-old cartoons; it’s family-friendly, and thanks to its source material will feel like a natural fit for people to watch on TV at home.
