2. Elmer Fudd

Elmer Fudd was classic Looney Tunes character who suffers from rhotacism.


Context:

Rhotacism is a speech impediment that is defined by the lack of ability, or difficulty in, pronouncing the “R” sound.

An example of rhotacism would be Elmer Fudd’s pronunciation of "rabbit" as "wabbit". His exaggerated rhotacistic speech ("Be vewwy quiet… I'm hunting wabbits").
