It occurred to me after posting the cartoon of Elmer Fudd hunting and finding Buggs Bunny, how far our notion of how to hunt has come. The cartoon depicts no camouflage, no face paint; the shotgun isn’t a parody of an assault rifle, and Elmer doesn’t have a guide holding a tripod.
This was a Saturday morning cartoon that didn’t teach spelling, elicit emotions or serve as an infomercial for a toy or cereal brand. It was just a cartoon designed to make you laugh.
The “good old days!”
