Elmer Fudd is a short, bald-headed, game hunting little gentleman with a speech impediment. He tries to be tough, but his speech pwowbwem and his relatively low intelligence makes him only minor threat to those who cross him. Elmer Fudd can generally be seen hunting Bugs Bunny, as he did in his first formative appearance hunting an early Bugs in Chuck Jones' "Elmer's Candid Camera"(1940.)
"Be vewy, vewy quiet," I told my kids. "I'm hunting wabbits!" They looked at my blankly. They have no idea who Elmer Fudd is, or what these other 10 awesome Generation X references are! Children of the 70s and 80s, take a trip down memory lane and see if your favorite phrase made this list.
My FAVORITE Looney Tunes cartoon EVER!!! "What's Opera, Doc?" (1957), full of Wagner's music ("Flying Dutchman" and "Pilgrim's Chorus", anyone?). I wonder how many others besides me love classical music today, thanks largely to this cartoon? :D
