Do you guys SERIOUSLY care whether or not Elmer Fudd has a gun in our shorts? You know how many gags we can do with guns? Fairly few. And the best were already done by the old guys. It's limiting. It was never about the gun, it was about Elmer's flawed, challenged masculinity.

Also, think about context about what's going on in the world, and how long ago our show started production. Late 2017, early 2018. Right on the heels of a record number of mass shootings, particularly the horrific one in Las Vegas. NOBODY wanted to touch guns working in media.

I'm not here to put words in other people's mouths or anything, but as someone who worked for 2 years with these characters, I personally did not care or miss Elmer's rifle. We got a lot more out of his personality and his lack of wit than any implement in his hands. Move on.

Correction: I worked for nearly FIVE YEARS with these characters (3 on "Wabbit/New Looney Tunes", 2 on "Looney Tunes Cartoons"). Still, did not care or miss the guns. We got a lot more out of wordplay, dynamite and the character's own naivety/stupidity than we ever did with guns.

Also scythes are cooler than guns.

Nope. There's so much more that can be done with him besides hunting.

I was but this has genuinely turned me off if they can’t even be bothered to think of a suitable replacement I don’t have high hopes for anything else
