Shoot Him Now! Shoot Him Now!

Pop artist James Cauty’s work Splatter repurposes classic Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoons and gives them a Sin City-style blood spatter makeover, “presenting the viewer with unrelenting acts of bloody, cartoon violence, which, in cartoon law, ultimately cannot cause fatal injury.”

Daffy gets shot
Bugs: It’s true, Doc; I’m a rabbit alright. Would you like to shoot me now or wait ’til you get home?
Daffy: Shoot him now! Shoot him now!
Bugs: You keep outta this! He doesn’t have to shoot you now!
Daffy: He does so have to shoot me now! [to Elmer] I demand that you shoot me now!
Tweety is no-more
The idea came from the Cauty’s 15-year-old son who suggested his dad show the violence that cartoons leave out. “People have been saying since the ‘60s that cartoons should show the consequences of violence, or kids will get the wrong idea,” Cauty told the Telegraph.
Tom Finally Wins
“Its very difficult to shock kids these days – you have cartoon characters being shot in the head and walking off cliffs, so we have decided to replace them with something more realistic.”
