  • 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 publicthe 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
