Be vewy, vewy quiet. I'm hunting wabbits. Hahahaha.
~ Elmer's catchphrase

Elmer J. Fudd is the main antagonist and major character of Looney Tunes franchise. He is a rabbit hunter who is Bugs Bunny's arch-enemy.


Elmer is the arch-nemesis of Bugs Bunny in the Bugs Bunny cartoons and was the most recurring enemy of Bugs.

Elmer was willing to try and kill Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, and his actions often lead Bugs to trick him in many way.

In the 1996 Looney Tunes movie, Space Jam, is a member of a team called The Toon Squad.

In The Looney Tunes Show, is occasionally a news reporter.

He was one of the villains in Looney Tunes: Back in Action, working for Mr. Chairman.

Despite being an antagonist, he is not usually very bad/evil, and sometimes has good intentions. Elmer was also considered too soft to be a true threat, which was the reason why Yosemite Sam and Marvin the Martian were created as Bugs Bunny's new enemies.

Heroic Acts

  • In Space Jam, he was part of a basketball team the Looney Tunes characters put together called The Toon Squad and he helped defeat the Nerdlucks/Monstars.
  • In a couple of classic episodes, Elmer and Bugs work together, like where the hunt needs to be called off because someone is destroying the forest and they both want to preserve the environment.
  • In some non-Bugs shorts, he is a farmer who is trying to keep a functional environment to deal with pests, bizarre toon logic and Foghorn Leghorn trying to take advantage of him.
  • In a New Looney Tunes episode called Bugs Bunny Saves The Universe, he helped save the universe.
  • In a New Looney Tunes episode called Planet of the Bigfoots, he helped save the GoobaGoobas.
  • In the Batman/Elmer Fudd crossover, Elmer appears in his most serious incarnation yet where he serves as an anti-hero who used to date Silver St. Cloud until she was supposedly killed by Bugs "The Bunny". He decided to kill Bugs until Bugs claimed Bruce Wayne hired him to kill St. Cloud. He shot Wayne and attempted to kill him, but narrowly failed. He later fought Batman, before teaming up to find St. Cloud's killer. It is eventually revealed St. Cloud faked her death to unite Fudd and Batman and see what would happen.

Voice Actors

  • Danny Webb or Cliff Nazarro (1937-1939)
  • Arthur Q. Bryan (1939-1959)
  • Mel Blanc (1943;1950;1957;1972-1989)
  • Roy Rogers (in A Feud There Was while singing)
  • Dave Barry (1958)

  • In a Looney Tunes Christmas song called Christmas Rules, his line was cut out. However, his line was "Candy cane self-medicating" but said it in a different voice.
  • Due to an odd case of censorship, the Looney Tunes Cartoons shorts aren't allowing characters like Elmer and Yosemite Sam to use firearms. Therefore, Elmer is consistently seen without his signature shotgun, and is instead using various other weapons like dynamite, which are oddly considered fair game.
