Yosemite Sam Angry at Yosemite for name infringement
I think you all remember the red handlebar mustached, midget cowboy from Looney Toons. His name is still Yosemite Sam. And, he wants the US government to pay up to the sum of 6,000,000 million dollars for the use of his name with its most profitable and famous national park.
Although he says he will take a check, he prefers cash. He also wants all coyotes shot in the park. That is the one stipulation that has made this deal sticky. And, as of yet, neither party will budge.
Some people who know him, like Daffy Duck and Porky Pig have encouraged him to drop the suit. Roadrunner and Bugs however are on his side. This hullabaloo has been going on quietly for months now and both the Looney Toons and the US government want to see it come to a expedited conclusion. For now we just wait.
