Are You There God? It's Me, Elmer.
One of the most idiotic arguments regarding a Bob Clampett cartoon I've ever seen on the Internet has arisen (I will spare those folks the embarassment and not provide a link) so I'll let a film clip settle it... Is Elmer Fudd talking to Jesus' Daddy at the beginning of "The Old Grey Hare"?
Bob McKimson did the scene in question, followed by some hilarious animation of Gran'pappy Elmer and Bugs by Rod Scribner (there is a quick cut back to McKimson when Bugs strangles Elmer).
