Personal Quote:

You kwazy wabbit!

Trivia:

Played the title role in "The Major Hoople" radio series that debuted on NBC's Blue Network on June 22, 1942. Based on Gene Ahern's comic strip "Our Boarding House", Bryan co-starred with Patsy Moran as The Major's wife Martha Hoople. Mel Blanc, who would later portray Bugs Bunny to Bryan's Elmer Fudd, played the star boarder, Tiffany Twiggs on the 30-minute program, which aired on Mondays at 7 ... See more »

Trademark:

While off-screen in animation, especially as hunter, Elmer Fudd, Arthur Q. Bryan almost continiously mispronounced the letter w with r, just barely below 100%. He said wabbit for rabbit. In real life, he did not have a speaking lisp. He also acted in his speaking abilities, almost like Mel Blanc.

Star Sign:
