Strange Moments in Cartoons – Part 3

In Tiny Toon Adventures – Episode 33: “Spring in Acme Acres” (November 6, 1990), when Cupid (Elmer Fudd) foists his job of spreading love and romance across Acme Acres upon the dim-witted and incompetent Concord Condor, the results are nothing short of disasterous.


Babs Bunny and Montana Max become a couple…


Elmyra channels her inner Rat Fink and chases Hampton Pig


…and Calamity Coyote goes from being pursuer to pursuee thanks to Little Beeper‘s newfound affection for him.

Wait a second.

Calamity Coyote and Little Beeper are both male. And Cupid’s arrows clearly evoke feelings of romantic love, as we can see from our other two mismatched male/female pairings. But then why would…

Oh.

Oh my.

Well now. That certainly puts a whole new Freudian spin on the Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner dynamic, now doesn’t it? 😉
