Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam won’t be toting their iconic guns in HBO’s reboot of ‘Looney Tunes.’
“We’re not doing guns,” said executive producer and showrunner Peter Browngardt. “But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”
Despite this, the revival of the iconic series, called “Looney Tunes Cartoons” will have its share of mature content.

“Some of them have maybe gone a little too far, so they might come out in a different format,” said Browngardt. “Maybe they’ll come out packaged for an Adult Swim type of thing.” (Adult Swim is owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment.)
