      • Didn’t he also say, “I like it, I like it” when Bugs was playing piano in Sam’s uncle’s mansion? He only liked the awful piano concerto by BB to inherit a fortune from the rich uncle, greedy bastard! Bugs is awesome though. He made Sam believe he would only get the money if he did not “blow his lid…” CLASSIC!!

    • I remember a quote ( one often played on the radio ) that went, “A woman! A woman! I goooottta have a woman!” Is this a real Yosemite Sam quote or maybe a voice artist con job?

      • Hey Stan, I don’t remember Yosemite Sam speaking those words … There was a song in the 70′s named Troglodyte (Cave Man) by The Jimmy Castor Bunch that did sing those same words … Good old song

  1. I’m pretty sure that ‘Shut up shuttin’ up’ is uttered by Rocky in ‘Bugsy and Mugsy’ from 1957.

    • My apologies, it is actually from 1954′s ‘Bugs and Thugs’. I had to dig out my collection to find it because I just knew 1957 was too late for that quote! Not bad for an aging sievehead like me…

  2. Actually YS does say it but I can’t find the exact episode. You are correct though that Rocky does say it also.

  3. Actually, to go along with this quote “Yeah, Yosemite Sam … The roughest, toughest, he-man stuffest hombre’ is ever crossed the Rio Grande”, should be, “And I don’t mean Mahatma Gahndi. Now all you dirty skunks clear on outta here” To where a skunk saunters out saying; “My, but weren’t there a lot of dirty skunks in here.”

  4. “That dirty perka shorka bat-flattin’ portin’ filabunkabertin’, perkalooma burtin’ dirtin’ boostinattin’ bartin’ anatom, oooooooh!” – From Hare To Heir

  5. “I’m a pirate, Sea-Goin’ Sam, the blood-thirstiest, shoot-’em-first-iest, doggone worst-iest buccaneer that ever sailed the Spanish main!”

    from Buccaneer Bunny

  6. My favorites have always been:

    “Dragons is so stupid!”

    and…

    “I’m a gonna make you my partner. All you gotta do is find the gold, and I’ll share it with ya.”

  7. I need to find out who said, “I’m a rootin’ toot tootin’ two gun shootin’ wild west buccaneer.” Pretty sure it was sam but can’t find it.

  8. One of my favorite YS quotes:

    “I saw ya sneak in there, ya **YELLOW-LIVERED SCHWEINHUNT!!” (From “Dumb Patrol,” of course!!)

      • That was written by Sylvester when yet another one of his plans were foiled. Like the time he nailed boards together to get across a yard full of dogs, when it fell, he said “Oh suffering suffocats” before he fell. It’s one of his famous lines, but Yosemite Sam didn’t say it.

        • Amanda,
          The exclamation Sylvester actually used was “suffering succotash!” It’s even listed in the Urban Dictionary: 1) suffering succotash: An exclamation of annoyance and surprise, made famous by the cartoon character Sylvester the cat …
          Thanks for posting, it’s always been one of my favorite lines …

  9. It was “gettin footy prints all over my [desert]“, that was in the first part of the cartoon. I got raisd-up on all of them-thar cartoons, (I turned 70 July 2nd, no TV until the mid-fifys only movies once a month, sometimes once a week) I have mental images of all of those young guys (I have a thing on another computer they made where they told how they got starter) where thinking-up all of those funny things to say and laughing their ASSES off!! Michael said that.

  10. I always remember when BB tricked him into getting locked in an oven, anyway instead of saying something like gee its getting hot in here he screams in the “not so worried but more annoyed manner” “GEE ITS GETTING POWERFULL WARM IN HERE” I laugh when I think about it still :)

  11. Does anyone remember a cartoon that ends with a dynamite blast and YS and his cabin soaring into the heavens? I think he said, “Well, what do ya know? a cabin in the sky.” Or maybe BB said that?

  12. What about: Ooh! I hates Christmas! And I hates mistletoe! And I hates kissing! That was in a Christmas one.

  13. I didn’t see this one…..while playing cards with Bugs….” I’m thinkin’. And my head hurts.”

  14. I’m certain that many of the original Yosemite Sam episodes are “lost” in vaults because of cultural sensitivities. As a child of the ’60s, I’m very aware of the rabid anti-japanese sense of the Looney tunes cartoons of the war time. Bugs certainly could bring it and verbally sling it.

    I always liked “dagnabbit”. How can this miss the list? It’s a censor proof form of “goddammit”.

  15. “Come on outta that thar hole ya flea-bitten varmint afor I blow the fur clean off’n yer carcass!”

  16. Serious fans surely realize Sams way with camels is the same as it is with any other domesticate, be it dragons or otherwise. =)

  17. No idea where he said it, but I’m sure there’s “Ahhhhm ready!” out there somewhere.

    I used to use it as a drop-in sound bite on the radio.

  18. I seem to recall the angry quote: “I hate you rabbit”…but did not see it up above…I did however catch the 3 second clip on youtube in the scene: high diving act, the saloon…etc. This is an iconic quote that keeps haunting me and I just start to smile. When that happens, my wife or my son just look over and ask what am I smiling about. Of curse by now, they know. LOL
    thank you for sharing this with us. My 13 year old will never know the humor of Mel Blanc :-))

  19. Unless I missed it in this list or the comments above, I believe one of his feisty sayings, after whipping out his trusty sidearms, was “Back off, Varmint!”

    • Not quite sure if that is an exact quote Phil. I’ll have to research it looking through my video collection, and then post it.

      Thanks for the input … Dino
