Yosemite Sam was introduced in 1945 by Creator/FrizFreleng as a less sympathetic enemy for Bugs Bunny than the rather mellow and well-mannered WesternAnimation/ElmerFudd. As an aggressive jerk with a fondness for shootin', Sam gives Bugs moral license to unleash his KarmicTrickster on him without losing any audience sympathy. Sam was one of the rare characters to see exclusive use by only one of the Termite Terrace directors - his creator, Freleng. He never appeared in any Jones or [=McKimson=] cartoons, with one exception: ''Hare-Abian Nights", a ClipShow directed by Ken Harris featuring archive footage from Freleng shorts.

Yosemite Sam was introduced in 1945 by Creator/FrizFreleng as more antagonistic, less sympathetic enemy for Bugs Bunny than the rather mellow and well-mannered WesternAnimation/ElmerFudd. Sam is most often the agressor in the cartoons he stars in, allowing Bugs to unleash his KarmicTrickster on him without losing any audience sympathy.
