Elmer Fudd Will No Longer Have A Rifle In New Looney Tunes Cartoons

There’s a new Looney Tunes cartoon short on HBO Max called “Dynamite Dance.

It has the classic fixtures of an old short, specifically Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd.

In the cartoon, Bugs is chasing down Elmer with some dynamite, while Elmer seems to be missing something.

His rifle.

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

Browngardt added that the old “Looney Tunes” antics are there, too: the sticks of dynamite, the intricate booby traps, the anvils and bank safes dropped on unsuspecting heads.

And in case you’re wondering, that means Yosemite Sam’s pistols are going to be tossed out as well.
