Elmer J. Fudd is a fictional cartoon character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies series, and the de facto adversary of Bugs Bunny. He has one of the more disputed origins in the Warner Bros. cartoon pantheon (second only to Bugs himself). His aim is to hunt Bugs, but he usually ends up seriously injuring himself and other antagonizing characters. He speaks in an unusual way, replacing his Rs and Ls with Ws, so he always refers to Bugs Bunny as a "scwewy wabbit". Elmer's signature catchphrase is, "Shhh. Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits", as well as his trademark laughter.
The best known Elmer Fudd cartoons include Chuck Jones' masterpiece What's Opera, Doc? (one of the few times Fudd bested Bugs, though he felt bad about it), the Rossini parody Rabbit of Seville, and the "Hunting Trilogy" of "Rabbit Season/Duck Season" shorts (Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning, and Duck! Rabbit, Duck!) with Fudd, Bugs Bunny, and Daffy Duck. An earlier character named Egghead set some of Elmer's aspects before the character's more conspicuous features were set.
My ex-wife is from Iowa. I met her when I moved there in `93 to visit an old Navy buddy for the summer.
I was always under the impression that the Midwest was full of good ol' boy farmers and very conservative God-fearing folks.
And I met quite a few people like that and ended up living there...
What can we update Fudd with? I mean it’s 2019 and I can’t be the only one that rolls my eyes when I see the Fudd card being played....even if it’s completely deserved. Realistically most new shooters haven’t even watched good ol Elmer hunting that wabbit, on Saturday morning.
So what’ve you got?
