Yosemite Sam


Warner Brothers
1945 +
10 Minutes

The mini-adventures of a pint-sized cowboy with an oversized hat,  bushy eyebrows, bulbous nose, and a long droopy red mustache.

Wielding a set of six-guns, the hot-tempered little gunslinger would say "Ya better say yer prayers, ya flea-bitten varmint! Ah'm a gonna blow ya to smithereenies!"

Frustrated with Bugs Bunny, Sam would say "Ah hates rabbits".


Bugs Bunny: Eh, what's up, Doc?
Yosemite Sam: What's up? Why, you hornery, fur-bearing critter! This here is one of them there train robbery hold-ups.
Bugs Bunny: Yeah? Well, you must be Jesse James.
Yosemite Sam:  Jesse James? Ha ha ha! Phooey! Why, everybody knows me. I'm Yosemite Sam, the meanest, toughtest, rip-roaringest, Edward-Everett-Hortonest hombre whatever packed a six-shooter. (fires gun) That's who I am!
Bugs Bunny: You don't say? Well, come 'ere, shorty, come 'ere. Don't say I told ya, but there's a guy in the next car who says he's the meanest, toughest, et cetera, et cetera, and he's got a seven-shooter to prove it. How's about that?
Yosemite Sam: There is? Why, I'll blast the varmit wide open! [The "varmint" is Bugs in disguise]

 -- Hare Trigger (1945)
