    Wow, first rate re-scoring of the theme music! :bolian: Incidental music is rock solid, too. The animation looks flawless, definitely lacks the issues 35mm filming would incur but feels germane to the lore and, even more (positively) striking, the time period in which the golden age of Bugs Bunny cartoons were made in. Nothing feels forced or contrived. In a word, it feels... authentic. Kudos. :luvlove:

    As a wee tyke, I associated a scythe as being that "thing" the Grim Reaper carried long before I learned it was a farming tool...and I'm 56. I don't think I saw a scythe outside of that metaphorical context until I moved to southern Georgia in 1977 when I got to see farms for the first time.

    I think people who don't know a scythe by name would still be able to tell it was a sharp bladed weapon, so the point (no pun intended) would still get across.

    I'm not even supposed to be here today.
    I guess I should have added an emoticon there, as some of you apparently didn't realize I was kidding.

    Sometimes what you think is a silly question may turn out to have a serious answer, and that's not a bad thing because you can discover things you didn't expect.

    Indeed, I was thinking the same as Redfern -- my main referent for the idea of a scythe is probably the Grim Reaper image. I'm not sure when I learned what they're really for (farm implements, right?).

    Yes I had farmland/Old West Playmobil figures that came with scythes.

    I wish they would have Elmer with a gun and bugs using something else beside dynamite. For a person in their early 20's I don't think that humour has changed that much. Heck just look up videos kids response to loony tunes cartoons.

    Yep, the Grim Reaper image is how I've come to associate the Scythe. I probably wouldn't have known it was even farming related if it weren't for depictions of it being used on TV.
