Amazing! After a fairly long hiatus since the last, not so well thought out attempt, they’re bringing back some Loony Tunes characters, specifically Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam. Of course, Hollywood being Hollywood, they’ve decided to do so utterly without firearms … Because, you know, “gun violence” and firearms send the wrong message to the kiddies 🙄
Yep! They’re bringing back a hunter and crazed gunslinger/cowboy, but without guns, which makes so much sense.
But don’t be concerned. The executive producer and showrunner, Peter Browngardt made it clear that the new shorts will be filled to the brim with that Olde Time Loony Tunes violence and mayhem … but no guns.
“We’re not doing guns,” executive producer and showrunner Peter Browngardt said in an interview with The New York Times.
“But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”In a short titled “Dynamite Dance,” Fudd uses a scythe as he chases his nemesis Bugs Bunny. Bugs Bunny responds by using explosives to blow Fudd up multiple times.
So, maybe a mashup with some Peanuts characters are in order. After all, Mr. Schulz was never afraid to go against the ideas of studio execs.
