(FOX NEWS) – Elmer Fudd has made a big change for the newest series of “Looney Tunes” cartoons.
In the latest update of the series — called “Looney Tunes Cartoons” and streaming on HBO Max — the iconic character will no longer use a gun, according to the people behind the show.
“We’re not doing guns,” executive producer Peter Browngardt told The New York Times.
“But, we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”
Warner Bros., which has produced the series, released a clip that featured Elmer using a scythe to try catching Bugs Bunny instead.
In the clip, Elmer and Bugs engaged in one of their classic face-offs, and as usual, the rabbit got away without a scratch while Elmer was left scorched by TNT.
The show cited gun violence as a reason for the change, The Telegraph reported.
