Elmyra Duff is a character from the Warner Bros. animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures. As suggested by her name and basic design, she is the Tiny Toons equivalent to Elmer Fudd, but her personality is more akin to that of Hugo the Abominable Snowman. She is obsessed with animals and cute things and is always chasing after such animals, including her own classmates, often obliviously causing great discomfort or serious injury to potential pets from her overenthusiastic affection and complete lack of any knowledge of pet care. Despite the fact that she was not very popular with the writers or the fans, she later made several cameos on Animaniacs and, most infamously, was added to Pinky and the Brain in the short-lived spin-off Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain.
Appearances in Christmas specials
Tiny Toon Adventures
Elmyra had a minor part in Tiny Toon Adventures Christmas episode, "It's a Wonderful Tiny Toons Christmas Special". She shows up early on, trying to get Montana Max to kiss her under the mistletoe, but he refuses. After Max bribes the FOX network executives into letting him direct the Tiny Toons holiday special, Elmyra is forced to star in a sketch where she has to portray Leona Helmsley, but she complains that she does not want to do that. After Buster Bunny is reinstated as the special's director and makes Max appear as the Christmas tree star, Elmyra tries to kiss him under the mistletoe again.
Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain
Because she was shoehorned into Pinky and the Brain, Elmyra would notably be the only Tiny Toons character to appear in another Christmas production. In the Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain episode "Yule Be Sorry", Elmyra thinks that Brain is being a "mean old ghost-head Scrooge" for not enjoying the holidays like she and Pinky are doing. When she then force-feeds fruitcake and eggnog to the mice, Brain decides to use the test model of his Oxy-Absorber on Elmyra, telling her that it is to be a motel where some elves are vacationing, but she does not flip the on/off switch on the back of the machine when he tells her to. Pinky then activates the Oxy-Absorber and causes Brain to pass out, resulting in him having a bad dream where he's living in a laboratory without Pinky, and then Elmyra shows up to torture him there. When Brain wakes up, he finds Elmyra and Pinky crying because they think Brain died from the accident, and after apologizing for snapping at Pinky earlier, Brain then wishes Elmyra a Merry Christmas.
