Rhapsody in Rivets
is an animated Looney Tunes theatrical short. It was directed by Friz Freleng. It is historically noted for being nominated for an academy award for best short subject.


At a busy urban construction site, an appreciative crowd of gawkers watches the foreman use the building plans as his score and conduct the workmen in Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, a symphony of riveting, hammering, sawing, and more. The workmen are dogs in human clothes. Elevators, picks, shovels, and a steam shovel are instruments in music making and construction. As the clock nears 5:00 PM, the crew works furiously, and the Umpire State Building rises toward the clouds. With the pennant planted at the top and the work completed, the foreman takes a bow.
