The epic Warner Brothers “Looney Tunes” cartoons with Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, and Daffy Duck are getting a reboot but, two characters are getting a makeover.
The “Looney Tunes” characters Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam are getting a makeover, yes the famous hunter and prospector that is constantly outwitted by Daffy Duck and Bugs bunny will no longer have firearms.
“We’re not doing guns,” executive producer Peter Browngardt told The New York Times. “But, we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”
Instead Warner Bros., who is producing the reboot, released a clip showing Elmer Fudd using a scythe to “catch” Bugs Bunny.
So, shooting Bugs Bunny is bad, but feel free to use a scythe to stab and bloody the rabbit to death (only in liberal America).
In the clip, Elmer and Bugs have one of their classic face-offs that result in Elmer being blown up by TNT. The show told The Telegraph that gun violence is why they decided to give Fudd a makeover.
“Some of them have maybe gone a little too far, so they might come out in a different format,” Browngardt said.
I can only imagine what Warner Bros. is going to do to ruin the iconic “Looney Tunes” because as they claim, some of the characters had “gone a little too far.” Take Yosemite Sam, for instance, maybe they’ll have him take part in one of these new “struggle sessions,” take a knee and renounce his “privileged” takeover of the west.
You know they are going to probably alter Pepe Le Pew as well, the mob can’t have a sex-crazed skunk chasing down women. If I were a betting man I would imagine that Pepe will now be one of these man bun, woke, hipsters that has renounced his evil ways and will bow before the vagina hats.
Lastly, Marvin the Martian will no longer be coming to earth to invade that’s way too violent and “orange manish.” Instead, Marvin will be coming to earth to rid us of our “white privilege” and dissolve all police departments.
Those last three examples were not mentioned by Warner Bros., it was just me having some fun. However, I fear I may not be wrong and that just goes to show you how crazy everything is.
