Yosemite Sam

Yosemite Sam (/joʊˈsɛmɪti/ ''yoh-SEM-ih-tee'') is a cartoon character in the ''Looney Tunes'' and ''Merrie Melodies'' series of short films produced by Warner Bros. His name is taken from Yosemite National Park in California. He is an adversary of Bugs Bunny and his archenemy alongside Elmer Fudd. He is commonly depicted as a mean-spirited and extremely aggressive, gunslinging outlaw or cowboy with a hair-trigger temper and an intense hatred of rabbits, Bugs in particular. In cartoons with non-Western themes, he uses various aliases, including "Chilkoot Sam" (named for the Chilkoot Trail; Sam pronounces it "Chilli-koot") and "Square-deal Sam" in ''14 Carrot Rabbit'', "Riff Raff Sam" in ''Sahara Hare'', "Sam Schultz" in ''Big House Bunny'', "Seagoin' Sam" in ''Buccaneer Bunny'', "Shanghai Sam" in ''Mutiny on the Bunny'', "Von Schamm the Hessian" in ''Bunker Hill Bunny'', "Baron Sam von Schpamm" in ''Dumb Patrol'', and many others. During the golden age of American animation, Yosemite Sam appeared as antagonist in 33 animated shorts made between 1945 and 1964. Provided by Wikipedia
