Elmer Fudd full review
Elmer Fudd, with the J initial, is an awesome cartoon character from the stables of Warner Bros and remains one of the most famous of them. He is the main antagonist to Bugs Bunny and he is always after Bugs, hunting him down with Bugs coming out tops as Elmer and other such antagonists of Bugs injuring themselves. One of the very distinct features of Elmer Fudd is the way he speaks with his Rs and Ls replaced with Ws, referring to Bugs as “wabbit” instead of “rabbit”.
Elmer Fudd has featured in a number of cartoon series with one of the very famous ones being what’s Opera, Doc? with Elmer besting Bugs. Other cartoons that have seen the famous Elmer appear in them include the Rossini parody, Rabbit of Seville, and the Hunting Trilogy among others.
Egghead is famously regarded as the pacesetter for Elmer, setting some of the features that have been largely attributed to him. Elmer’s emergency was modified in 1940 when he appeared having a chin and a less bulbous nose but still with the clothing of Egghead. This is largely considered as the first true appearance of Elmer Fudd. His first appearance was powered by Chuck Jones and was titled Elmer’s Candid Camera. He made another appearance in Confederate Honey where he was named Ned Cutler.
Elmer was famously portrayed as a hunter of big games carrying his double-barreled shotgun. He would comb the woods looking for rabbits or “wabbits” in his voice. He, however, appeared as a wealthy industrialist that lived in a penthouse in a few cartoons.
Elmer was again modified in a number of cartoons between 1941 and 1942 as he was portrayed as a fat individual in WabbitTwouble; The Wacky Wabbit ; The Wabbit Who Came to Supper; Any Bonds Today? ; and Fresh Hare, with audiences around the world refusing to appear the new look of Fudd.
As mentioned earlier, his vocals were made for his Rs and Ls to sound as W, a feature similar to what is obtainable with Tweety Bird and made very prominent in the cartoons Candid Camera and Pet Rabbit.
Elmer made appearances in the 1970s and eighties in a couple of TV specials and even cameo roles in feature-film compilations of Looney Tunes. The Tiny Toon adventures were also fortunate to have the famous Elmer grace their platform.
Elmer Fudd has continued to thrill its large followers all over the world making several appearances even till 2009.
