Storyline

Things are moving pretty slow in the Weaver cabin. Most of the men (and animals) are sleeping, and even those who are awake are only half-awake. A microphone for the radio station KFWB drops in front of four of them. They snap to and burst into song (with a nap during the commercial). They sing of the joy of shooting McCoys. The McCoys, called skunks by a young boy with a deep voice, shoot their question at the Weavers: "Do ya mean it?" The reply: "Yas we mean it!" The feud is on. Coming on a scooter is "Elmer Fudd, Peacemaker" (though the character design and voice is that of Egghead). He suggests peace to the Weavers, and gets a backside of buckshot. The McCoys give him the same response. The sheriff catches one combatant off-side and gives him a 5 yard penalty. Elmer stands in the middle and again pleads for peace. Everyone gangs up around him; there's a huge brawl, and only Elmer is left standing. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The changing of Egghead
8 November 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short is, so far as I'm aware, the first (and only) time Egghead is called Elmer. The similarities between the two are peripheral but notable: style of dress, a lack of hair, etc. At some point, Egghead stopped appearing and Elmer started getting paired off with Bugs and Daffy instead. Was it a deliberate decision? Possibly. Egghead was a useful, but limited, character. It makes sense that Egghead morphed into Elmer. This cartoon is a hilarious collection of bits strung together within a framing device loose enough to permit the gags but tangible enough to have a story, something which allowed Avery full rein while giving enough to the audience that they could follow along for the ride. Well worth watching. Recommended.
