Cartoon Round-up 21: Yosemite Sam
Created by Isadore Friz Freleng in 1945, Yosemite Sam has become of the most loved of the Looney Toon cast. Freling did not believe that Elmer Fudd was giving Bugs Bunny much of a challenge, so he created Sam.

Yosemite Sam was not just a cowboy. He played many different roles. Surprisingly he always kept the mask on even in roles that did not require it.
