“Oh Belvedere! Come heah, boy!”
Apparently a Dixified version of Yosemite Sam, the good Colonel makes two appearences in Chuck Jones cartoons, Mississippi Hare (1949) and Dog Gone South (1950). In many respects, a hysterical stereotype of the Southern gentleman with an intense distaste for Yankees (which Charlie Dog plays on expertly) and chivalry toward ladies (which Bugs plays on expertly: see also Cross Dressing).
