You can set your Google language
to Elmer Fudd
(for 'wabbit searching season' and you wouldn't have to be 'vewy, vewy quiet' while hunting for your results). It is one of the comic languages that the search engine Google can be translated to.
In 1937, American animator and cartoonist Fred Avery
introduced a new character having a bulb-shaped nose, freakish clothing and an egg-shaped head which earned it the famous moniker, 'Egghead.' Egghead later probably evolved into Elmer Fudd when it appeared in the cartoon A Feud There Was (1938)
riding a motor-scooter with the words 'Elmer Fudd, Peacemaker' exhibited on the side.
From there on, the mirthful character of Elmer J. Fudd picked up as the poster hunter boy for the cartoon series Looney Tunes
displaying an eternal vengeance for Bugs Bunny. The character was created by American animator and cartoonist Chuck Jones
and officially debuted in the 1940 cartoon named Elmer's Candid Camera
. It was voiced by the legendary American radio personality and comedian Arthur Q. Bryan
. The odd way of replacing Rs and Ls with Ws, the signature catchphrase 'Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits', and Elmer's trademark laughter, 'huh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh' make the character a whimsical masterpiece.
Given below are his queer, rib-tickling, quotes which you can enjoy while he goes chasing wabbits!
