Did You Know?


He was the original voice in Warner Bros. cartoons of "Elmer Fudd", whose nemesis was "Bugs Bunny" and some times "Daffy Duck". See more »


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.
