Hi! I am the Managing Editor for Nerdbot.com I enjoy watching anime, learning about new things and keeping up with Nerd Culture. I love writing and hope to introduce people to things that they may not have known about before through my articles.

HBO Max’s new “Looney Tunes” series while having an array of crazy cartoon violence will not be showing anything to do with gun violence. This comes as part of a response to US gun violence. Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam will no longer use guns but they will be able to use things such as scythes, TNT, and other silly ways to fight.

Elmer Fudd specifically is said to have a scythe instead of his gun. No word yet on what Yosemite Sam will have but we’re thinking TNT. Peter Browngardt, executive producer of the series, in an interview with the New York Times says, “We’re not doing guns, but we can do cartoony violence – TNT, the Acme stuff.”

He also said that they would be keeping it inline with the Warner Bros originals but while also keeping the themes up to date.

“We’re going through this wave of anti-bullying, ‘everyone needs to be friends’, ‘everyone needs to get along’. Looney Tunes is pretty much the antithesis of that. It’s two characters in conflict, sometimes getting pretty violent.”

Peter Browngardt

The new “Looney Toons” series will consist of 80 eleven minute episodes and will tackle some of the issues we have going on today. Browngardt (“Uncle Grandpa“) and Sam Register serve as executive producers.

This may be met with some backlash, but others are happy that they will be omitting the gun violence. That said there are still plenty of other ways that they can include cartoony violence with mallets and explosives.
