Three Little Bops: A Warner Brothers Conspiracy?

Before reading, make sure you watch entire video.

One of the most surreal experiences I ever had was watching the Warner Brothers episode titled "Three Little Bops". I loved it as a little kid and to this day remains a Warner Brothers classic. But my experience occurred one day while sitting alone in my college dorm room, chilling out in front of my TV watching Warner Brothers cartoons.

My surreal experience occurred precisely at the 3:42 mark in the above video. You will notice at this precise point it shows how the three pigs are now in a house made of bricks...a house which we are to believe just happened to be built on May 1, 1776. Seeing this, my mouth just about dropped on the floor and I truly had what is classically defined as a surreal moment.

Some background information is in order to understand my bewilderment. At about this time in college I befriended a fellow student named Jake. Jake's mother was big time into conspiracy theories, and this sort of rubbed off on Jake to the point where we would often talk about various conspiracy theories. I thought I knew the subject until I talked to Jake, and then I realized how ignorant I was. One of the first things he gave me was a book on the history of Masonry and the Illuminati. I knew a lot about Masonry already, but it was the Illuminati that I knew hardly anything about. And one of the first things I read about was its founder, Dr. Adam Weishaupt.

Adam Weishaupt (1748-1830) was a German philosopher and professionally a professor of Canon Law. On May 1, 1776 Weishaupt formed the "Order of Perfectibilists". He adopted the name of "Brother Spartacus" within the order. Though the Order was not egalitarian or democratic, its mission was the abolition of all monarchical governments and state religions in Europe and its colonies. He coined the phrase: "The ends justified the means."

So at the same time I was reading this history, I watched "Three Little Bops" and up pops this shot of a cornerstone with the date of May 1, 1776. Some may think this is a coincidence, but May 1, 1776 is a significant date in Illuminati history, and nothing else of much significance historically happened on that day.

When you couple the date with the fact that it is inscribed on the cornerstone of the building, that is when all coincidence must be thrown out the window. Freemasons sometimes perform the public cornerstone laying ceremony for notable buildings. For example, the cornerstone of the Statue of Liberty was laid by Freemasons. In Freemasonry, which grew from the practice of stonemasons, the initiate (Entered Apprentice) is placed in the north-east corner of the Lodge as a figurative foundation stone. This is intended to signify the unity of the North associated with darkness and the East associated with light. Some interpret this as a reversal of the concept expressed in Ephesians 2:20 where Christ is described as the chief cornerstone.

Put in the context of the story, one can unravel a possible theory why this Illuminati symbolism has any significance. Interpreting the whole story from the end, we see the wolf emerging from hell and finally allowed entrance into the brick building. "You gotta get hot to be real cool" is sung at this point, which can be logically interpreted to mean that unless you sell your soul to the devil you won't be able to play the instrument and allowed access into the brick building. Could this be Masonic symbolism for the ceremony of the Entered Apprentice? Could it be something even deeper? Or could it all just be a cute cartoon for kids and just filled with Masonic coincidences?

I think not on that last question.
