Yosemite Sam

Yosemite SamI’ve been described as hot tempered, scandalous, ornery, shifty, and extremely grouchy … so be it.  I’ve appeared in a variety of roles … Confederate soldier, town mayor, desert sheik, royal cook, prison guard, even a space alien. But, be that as it may, some of my finest and favorite portrayals have been that of a pirate sailing the high seas, or a marauding, plundering, buccaneer sailing the Spanish Main. Truth be told though, my personal favorite, the role for which I’m known best, and the one I’m most familiar … that bein’ a pistol packin’, hare’ triggered, gun slingin’ cowboy.

I was first introduced to you, the public, by way of the cartoon “Hare Trigger” in 1945; courtesy of my good friends Friz Freleng, Mel Blanc, and the fine gents at Warner Bros.  From there I went on to star in a number of cartoons or ‘shorts’ as they’re known in the business, featured next to that lily-livered hare … Bugs Bunny.  Next it was on to appear in a cameo role, and a spin-off of sorts, alongside another varmint … some quacker, called himself Daffy.  And the rest as they say, is history.  Gotta go, I smell carrots cookin’… I’ll get that rabbit!

  3. Hey…I found a soundbite of sam talking about getting his hands on a large amount of money. “Why, when I get my hands on that money I’ll buy the Old Ladies Home and kick the old ladies out. I’ll have the Orphans home tore down and I’ll get rid of the Police Department! Buwahahahaha!” Gotta love it!!
