Hoover, J. Edgar

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Longtime publicity-conscious head of the FBI (and, according to some sources, even more of a cross-dresser than Bugs).

    Hoover is caricatured as the chief G-man in Hollywood Steps Out (Avery, 1941) saying nothing but “Gee!”, and is referred to by Daffy in Daffy Doodles (McKimson, 1946), when he threatens to tell “J. Edgar Whositz” about the actions of Porky in allegedly robbing the mail.
