It's been almost a year since the first promo video announcing the reboot of the Looney Tunes series called Looney Tunes Cartoons. The trailer presented a short scene of a chase with Bugs Bunny and hunter Elmer Fudd.
This scene was rich in the classic kind of animated violence and dynamics. The escaping animal used a large amount of explosives, while Elmer had a scythe in his hands, instead of the iconic rifle.
The creator of the series, Peter Browngardt, claims that giving up firearms is a fully conscious decision. He stresses, however, that the atmosphere of the cartoon will be preserved and the rest of the arsenal is allowed:
"We're not doing guns, but we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in."
