Well... UnderDeacon Joseph... I would never dispute a "current events" poster... who is well respected and regarded, such as yoreself.

 

But I have know some folks in the past... that interchanged 'em terms.

 

Why don't you look up... and email a fella named... Maj. John L. Plaster. Ask him what he thinks.

Mel Blanc did indeed do the voices

 

The cartoons themselves were directed by some guys named Bob Clampett, Robert McKimson, Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones.

This is simply my opinion, but -

 

SNAFU is a WW2 term. "Private Ryan" to the contrary, FUBAR did not exist. First time I ever heard the term was in the late 70s. That and BOHICA.

 

I believe the terms are, pretty much, interchangeable. They're just from different generations.
