animated cartoon Hare Trigger © Warner Bros.Yosemite Sam’s first appearance, Sam was created by Friz Freleng and his animation unit as an alternate villain to face against bugs bunny. The idea being that Sam could be more of a perceived threat against the rabbit than the eternally dim hunter Elmer Fudd.

Most notes and interviews from the animation team suggest that Sam was very much based on Friz Freleng himself in both his appearance and mannerisms.
