    Yeah that's why America is so violent now. All those Road Runner, Bugs Bunny, etc. cartoons, along with Roy and Gene winging the bad guy in the shoulder and him folding, dropping his gun and giving up; warped us all as we grew up. And of course the good guys wore white hats, the bad guys black hats. Go figure.

    They started eviscerating Warner Brothers cartoons back in the early eighties, if not earlier. I have a couple of DVD’s with original content, and I cherish them.

    Jame, the cartoon operation was shut down in the fifties, IIRC. WB revived it later, but it was cheap and mediocre. Ask me who my favorite artist is. Not Rembrandt, not Van Gogh; it’s Chuck Jones. :D

    Jesus Christ. Maybe they should make him gender neutral as well.

    Then why bother with a remake. Just come up with a new character.

    Worthless!

    Fudd without the SHOTGUN, coyote without anvils falling on his head, and non-violence tweety/Sylvester/bull-dog, complete BS. Cartoons suck now.

    You can't make this stuff up. Is he trying to catch Bugs with his bare hands.

    Even anti-gun Joe Biden approves of shotguns.

    There needs to be a waiting period to buy an anvil.

    Started sometime in the early 70’s. We were told they were too violent. Replaced with warring robots and aliens that blew up whole planets. Made zero sense to me.

    Boomerang Network on cable shows the originals with Elmer and his shotgun, Road Runner with all the violence, etc. My grandson loves them.

    His name was at one point Elmer Fuddpucker even. This guy needed a lot of cleaning up for today's socially impeccable free thinking elitists.

    THAT is what they are offended by? Really?

    They obviously haven't heard of "Scrub Me Mama with a Boogie Beat".......
