No more guns for Elmer Fudd & Yosemite Sam in newer Looney Tunes Cartoons

Studio 814

Looney Tunes characters Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam do not carry guns in the new “Looney Tunes Cartoons” that launched on HBO Max.

Make no mistake, there is still a lot of ACME dynamite explosions and cartoon violence. But Fudd’s signature hunting rifle is gone – and so are Sam’s pistols.

In a recent short titled “Dynamite Dance,” Fudd uses a scythe to chase Bugs Bunny, who fights back with explosives. There’s no word on whether the exclusion of firearms is related to gun violence in the nation.
