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

Elmer J. Fudd is the main antagonist and tetartagonist 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, is not very bad, 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.
