Looney Tunes’ Elmer Fudd loses his gun (and some fans are NOT happy)

A brand new series of Looney Tunes has begun airing on HBO MAX, with new episodes designed to capture the look and feel of the well-loved originals. But while classic characters such as Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd have returned, one detail hasn’t survived the transition to streaming in 2020 – Elmer Fudd’s gun.

In fact, there are no guns whatsoever in the new series. “We’re not doing guns,” executive producer Peter Browngardt told the New York Times. That means along with Elmer Fudd’s famous shotgun, Yosemite Sam’s pistols won’t make the cut either. Whether these weapons are part of the characters themselves is up to you (although our character design guide does prove that it’s possible to design an iconic character sans guns).
