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.
