Warner Bros Stripping Elmer Fudd of Rifle…Bugs Bunny Can’t Stop Laughing

As parents, our primary responsibility is to raise and teach our children in a way that will make them a successful part of society once they reach adulthood. One such lesson, instilled at a young age, is the adversity to violence and hateful action. It’s why, as a child, my nose was stuck in a corner after hitting my sister and also why I was forced to sit, holding hands, with that same sister, after we both got into a screaming match.

If you can’t tell, my parents were a little old school in their discipline. But it was all for a good cause.

I grew up knowing that lashing out at someone, whether verbally or physically, just because they said or did something I didn’t like would not be tolerated. Mom and Dad were preparing us for a world where actions, done without thinking, can lead to much more dire consequences, such as jail time and felony charges as an adult.

However, not everything we do as parents to curb those seemingly undesirable and reckless childlike behaviors is really for the best. I take Warner Bros’ recent decision to strip Elmer Fudd of his rifle as one of those.

Yes, you read that correctly. Say goodbye to Elmer Fudd as you know him.

The iconic Looney Toon character will be one of many to appear on a remake of the classic cartoons coming in a new HBO Max series. But we all know, as remakes go, some things have to change due to the times we live in. And the times we live in, apparently, demand that guns are to be done away with.

As the New York Post reports, “The change in the latest incarnation of the iconic animates series is a response to the gun violence in the US.”

And so, both Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam will have their guns taken from them in the upcoming episodes.

But as the series’ producer Peter Browngardt states, violence, in its entirety, is not be done away with. Instead, it’s just guns that will be missing from the plot.

Browngardt says, “We’re not doing guns. But we can do cartoony violence – TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”

In fact, nothing about the characters’ eternal plots to cause irreparable harm to the other is changing. They just aren’t “doing guns.”

I’m sure you are now asking, ‘So, if Elmer Fudd is still going to be on the hunt for Bugs Bunny, how will he supposedly be catching him, if not with a gun?’

The answer to that for Warner Bros is to give the clumsy cartoon character a different kind of weapon: a scythe.

Yes, because a man chasing his prey with what is essentially a large knife is somehow less scary and threatening than a hunter with a rifle.

If you aren’t super familiar with the scythe, it is an agricultural tool with a long, usually curved blade that was primarily used in the days before horse-drawn or tractor machinery to bring in the grain harvest or mow the grass. However, it is still used in some parts of Europe and Asia today.

You might also recognize it as the image eerily similar and so often confused with that of the sickle, which is most commonly found on just about every communist flag and symbol in the world. Coincidence? I’ll leave that for you to decide.

Now, let’s think about what a child will see in this new reboot of Looney Toons.

No longer do we have a hunter scouring the wood for a rabbit with his trusty rifle in hand, a harmless and age-old tradition for men and women all over the world. Instead, we are given images of a man that now raises a scary scythe to slay his opponent. It entirely changes the narrative.

Furthermore, it, in fact, adds more violence. Think about it; in the realm of cartoons, we all know what happens if Bugs were to actually be shot by the rifle – he simply falls over.

Now, imagine what happens if the scythe makes contact with the wascally wabbit’s body. He doesn’t just fall to the ground. He’s cut into pieces with blood and guts everywhere.

And yet somehow, this is better for our kids than Elmer Fudd, who can’t hit his target to save his life, walking around with a gun?

I think not.

  1. A hunter, without a rifle? That makes as much sense as a sheep dog without sheep. How about Wyle E Coyote without an anvil? They can be really dangerous you know. How about taking away the poison apple in Cinderella? Or maybe take the ax away from Paul Bunyon. Maybe pull the teeth out of the mouth of the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood? As long as we are going to be really stupid, let’s go full bore stupid!!

    1. Those whom the Gods would destroy; they first drive mad. (ancient Greek scholar)
      Is there anything sillier than the left trying to act like adults.

  2. What moron bought this up a weekly business meeting?? Always trying to change facts to fiction. Elmer hunts with a gun just like the millions of Americans who hunt. Warner Bros. has become a puppet to the politically correct. Bugs Bunny is laughing is ass off at their absolute stupidity of this CEO.

    1. maybe they can get Elmer a van, or Truck, so he can run Bugs down and maybe throw a couple innocent hunters in for good measure, they could be splattered all over the place.

    2. They keep saying Rifle trying to make it sound worse, I’m surprised the didn’t say Assault Rifle, but anybody with any sense at all knows Elmer didn’t carry a rifle, he carried a Shotgun !! Come on get it right and stop trying to make things worse.

  3. Elmer Fudd was hunting wabbits.Whats wrong with that.Maybe they need to take Daniel Boone musket for hunting to survive.What a bunch of losers WB’s.No spine ti stand upright.

  4. Does this mean that the Coyote can’t use Acme Explosives to blowup the Roadrunner anymore? They do realize that he never killed anything and all the cartoon characters only had 4 fingers which were the way you can tell them apart from reality. Does that mean all the Ray guns are going away too? Sad, glad I grew up in an era where life was real and moms stopped raising Mamas boys. The world where it’s ok for a boy can play with a doll but not allowed to play with a toy gun.

  5. This is so ridiculous, it borders on the insane. I can’t believe WB is doing this, this woke stuff is making a nation of weaklings, the kids being raised today will have no idea how to handle the real world. Elmer Fudd without his rifle, what’s the point?
    So sick of these spineless companies.

    1. Too late. The first generation of the woke brats is raising the next generation. The only blessing is most of them don’t want children.

    2. It is already too late. Why do you think there has been all the school shootings? Everybody’s a winner, There are no losers. Safe places. Given everything without earning it, No consequences for their actions,parents cannot discipline their kids, schools brainwashing them with far left ideological thinking and erasing the important facts of our country’s history and past so feelings aren’t hurt. It goes on and on and they are nowhere close to being able to handle and deal with the real world.

      1. I agree with you 100%. This is getting absolutely ridiculous! When will they get rid of hip hop music? They sing about rape, killing cops & murder! No one else would be allowed to get by with it! It’s part of what’s wrong with todays kids. They listen to that crap!

  6. Why don’t they take a poll and ask the people whether to take the gun away from Elmer? A gun (as he falls over) verses (a knife to chop his head off and blood and guts run all over the place), I know one thing, I would choose the gun, makes more sense to me.

  7. I think the LEFT … Socologist, Communist people have gone way too far …
    Pray and wake up … GOD HELP US …

  8. I bet they don’t take the trash in the videos the kids play all night and car chases. This world is getting holy f up.
    You are not going to take my gun away you [email protected]@[email protected]@g idiots and I will never vote for a socialist government. I will not watch Warner’s bro’s again.

  9. ‘It’s duck season!’ “It’s rabbit season!”
    A FRIGGING SCYTHE!?!!?!?
    These people are STUPID!
    The Birkenstock Bolsheviks were invited to take 6 blocks in Seattle and they have guns!
    Fortunately I will not be watching, I have the originals and nobody can replace Mel!

  10. Of course Warner Bros. would take Elmer Fudd’s gun away—they would castrate each other if that got Trump out of office…watching these Socialists morons decapitate their cause is kind of fun to watch…the marches, riots, looting and burning of 34 cities across the nation have spiked gun sales some 80% over yearly sales figures…insuring that the Democrats will not be very successful in destroying the second amendment anytime soon…this has only made the NRA twice as powerful…you morons! This, and the removal by HBO of Gone With The Wind, when Hattie McDaniel was the first black actress to win the Oscar just shows how really stupid the left has become…I knew one of the brothers Warner years ago, he dated my neighbor and good friend—he drank himself to death…this looks much like the same idiotic process emanating out of Warner. Bros who are cutting off their balls to spite Republicans…great for your shareholders you assholes!

  11. Are you ever-lovin kidding me? What a bunch of weaklings WB has become! Elmer Fudd without his shotgun ( NOT A RIFLE!), Is like a truck with no motor! It just doesn’t work! Yet, “Acme ” products (ie ; bombs, heat seeking rockets and missiles for example) are okay? Seriously, y’all need to take your heads out of the sand ( or wherever you have them), and really take a look at what you’re doing. And I, for one, would like to know just how far you’re going to go before you finally tell those who are whining and complaining about handy and readily available things like , oh I don’t know, parental controls, handy buttons that change the channels, or how about this idea…..be a more responsible parent? At this rate, cartoons may cease to exist simply because someone doesn’t like the way one character looked at another one! Are you ever-lovin kidding me?!!

  12. It is not only Bugs who can’t stop laughing, the whole world can’t stop laughing at the childish stupidity of the warner (pussy) bros. What pathetic and pitiful A-holes !!

  13. Globalist Soros and his minions the Deep State NAZI Commie liberal party corrupted to the core, MSM (Fake news) , Antifa, CIA, FBI, Lib Judges, Hollywood Rats, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, The useful idiots, RINOs etc…are responsible for this rioting, looting and destruction throughout the country. This treasonous act should not go unpunished! It’s about time these deep State rats are held accountable! Patriots, we need to save the country from turning into another Commie shit hole just like all the other lib run cities!!

  14. It’s time that all the adults raised in the 50s and 60s stand up and tell the Snot nosed snowflake LIBERALS at Warner brothers that if it wernt for us buying their movies they wouldn’t be where they are today. If they are going to Ban and pull those harmless cartoons, When are they going to pull the video games were guns are used all the time to shoot people or space ceatures?? Just look at the games the young kids are playing there are more weapons of mass destruction in those shows that all of the Bugs Bunny and Road Runner shows, and that generation knew it was not real. Its time for all the sane adults to stand up and STOP the commies from stealing history from us, and those shows are history,

  15. We might as well take the word “Courage” out of the dictionary! The whole culture seems to have lost it! Our cartoons used to show courage and kids knew what it was and could summon it when faced with hard decisions. If we are not allowed to show it even in cartoons, what will happen when the kids face real life? Folks, we need to see what courage consists of and that we are born with a certain amount! Without it we are not real Americans. We will become the bootlickers of the world!

  16. Haw WB gone insane?Maybe they should just drop making cartoons. Or TV films and series of any kind. Why are they afraid of the real world? I have seen Elmer Fudd cartoons since I was a kid. And hat was over 70 years ago. Gee, I never shot anyone because of a cartoon. I just cannot believe this stupidity.

  17. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s
    time to be happy. I’ve learn this put up and if I may just I desire to suggest you
    some interesting things or advice. Perhaps you could write subsequent articles referring to
    this article. I want to read even more things about it!

  18. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something
    informative to read?
