Yosemite Sam Coloring Pages
Yosemite Sam is an activated action actualization in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies alternation of cartoons produced by Warner Bros. Animation. The name is somewhat alliterative and is advancing by Yosemite National Park. In cartoons with non-Western themes, he uses assorted aliases, including “Chilkoot Sam” [named for the Chilkoot Trail; Sam pronounces it “Chilli-koot”] in 14 Carrot Aerial (although in the aforementioned cartoon, if he tries to accretion Bugs Bunny’s trust, he cleverly invents alias “Square-deal Sam”), “Riff Raff Sam” in Sahara Hare, “Sam Schulz” in Big House Bunny, “Seagoin’ Sam” in Buccaneer Bunny, “Shanghai Sam” in Mutiny on the Bunny, and “Sam Von Schamm the Hessian” in Bunker Hill Bunny and abounding others.
Animator Friz Freleng conflicting the actualization in the 1945 action Hare Trigger. With his fiery, angry temper, abbreviate ability (in two aboriginal gags in Hare Trigger, a alternation he is attempting to rob passes appropriate over top of him and he has to use a set of carriageable stairs to get on his horse; in Bugs Bunny Rides Again, he rides a miniature horse), and ablaze red hair, Sam was in some means an alter-ego of Freleng. The animator generally denied any advised resemblance. However, in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, actual associates of his assembly aggregation assert, and the backward director’s babe acknowledges, that Sam absolutely was advancing by Freleng.
Other influences were the Red Skelton actualization Sheriff Deadeye, the Tom Varn actualization Bubba, and the Tex Avery action “Dangerous Dan McFoo”. If he does a “slow burn” and cries “Oooooh!” he borrows a bit from such comedic actualization actors as Jimmy Finlayson (a accepted antithesis to Laurel and Hardy) and Frank Nelson (one of Mel Blanc’s costars on The Jack Benny Program). Freleng aswell cited the Terrible-Tempered Mr. Bang, a actualization in the Toonerville Trolley banana strip, as an influence.

The Bugs Bunny access Super-Rabbit (1943) actualization the cowboy actualization “Cottontail Smith”, who sounds a lot like Sam. Stage Door Action (1944), accession Bugs Bunny offering, actualization a southern sheriff actualization that sounds actual abundant like Sam, except for a added authentic southern average to his voice. In a Daffy Duck action alleged Forth Came Daffy (1947), Daffy has to argue with two characters who accessory actual abundant like Sam, one with Sam’s red hair and one with atramentous hair. Finally, Pancho’s Hideaway (1964) actualization a Mexican villain who is advised abundant like Sam but has a altered accent.

(The Colonel reappears in “Dog Gone South”, this time alveolate adjoin Charlie Dog, and accompanied by a bi-weekly alleged Belvedere, who resembles Hector the Bulldog.
Freleng created Yosemite Sam to be a added aces antagonist for Bugs Bunny. Until then, Bugs’ above foe had been Elmer Fudd, a man so amiable and addled that Freleng anticipation Bugs in fact came off as a annoyer by artifice him. Sam, on the added hand, was acutely agitated and belligerent, not at all a breeze like Fudd. Freleng compacted into a tiny physique and 11-gallon hat the better articulation and the better ego “north, south, east, aaaaand west of the Pecos”.
For over 19 years, Freleng had about absolute acceptance of Sam at the Warner studio. Admitting clearly a cowboy, Freleng put Sam in a altered apparel in about every film: a knight, a Roman legionary, a pirate, a aristocratic cook, a bastille guard, a battle (Duke of Yosemite, no less), a Confederate soldier, a abundance climber (climbing the ‘Shmadderhorn’ abundance in Switzerland), and even a amplitude alien. The amusement of the cartoons accordingly springs from the odd miscasting of the advancing cowboy. However, some countries assume to adopt his charlatan incarnation, as “Sam the pirate” is his official name in France and a accepted another name in Italy. During Apple War II Yosemite Sam was “drafted” into acceptable a amulet adumbration for the US Army Air Corps 20th Reconnaissance Squadron.
Despite Freleng’s intentions, Sam doesn’t prove abundant brighter than Elmer in his encounters with Bugs. With all his barefaced and bluster, Sam stands in adverse to Freleng’s calmly arrogant rabbit. Sam is decidedly tougher and added advancing than Elmer Fudd if arduous Bugs. He is aswell quicker to apprentice from his mistakes, and never avalanche for the aforementioned artifice twice. However it is Sam’s own assurance that consistently gets the best of him; Bugs learns to accord with Sam aloft acquirements that he is butterfingers of axis down a challenge. Every time Bugs dares Sam to “step beyond that line”, Sam can’t advice but do so, even if he accomplish off into abandoned amplitude or down a abundance shaft.
Another arch antithesis of Sam’s amusement is the antic lengths he’ll go to just to “get even” — generally with adverse after-effects to himself and his surroundings.
