Example of the original Elmer Fudd
Side note: I don't think that's supposed to be Elmer Fudd. The cartoon
All This and Rabbit Stew
featuring that character was released in September 1941,
made his official debut in 1940 in
Elmer's Candid Camera.
A Fudd-like character called Egghead had been introduced by Tex Avery as early as 1937, voiced by Danny Webb and later Arthur Q. Bryan. Many historians believe it was this character that evolved into Elmer Fudd, as both Egghead and Fudd were voiced by Bryan.
They redrew the black hunter into the Elmer Fudd we know today because of the racial implications.
