For a long time, it was believed that with the 1963 Looney Tunes cartoon "Devil's Feud Cake" (Friz Freleng), in the original theatrical version when Yosemite Sam arrives in Hell, Satan greets Sam with "Well, who in Hell are you?" Well, someone on a Facebook animation chat group brought up that someone he knows obtained a 35mm theatrical release print of "Devil's Feud Cake," and confirmed that in it Satan actually says to Yosemite Sam, "What the Devil is your name?" just like on TV and the HBO Max print. So it sounds like the alleged "Who in Hell are you?" line was just either a rumor or a false memory (maybe it was spoken in the "Satan's Waitin'" episode of "The Bugs Bunny Show" this cartoon was adapted from?)

Yes. Just a rumor. LeBron James does say 'hell' in the upcoming Space Jam movie.

Yeah, that's what I figured. And yeah, I also remember some guy saying "hell" in the original "Space Jam," too.

Two possiblites here:
1. somebody some where mis remember what was said, and then it wouldn't be for the first time something that somebody misremembered what happened or was said in a film.
2. The sequence was altered but only on TV, and in the Bugs Bunny Show, since the show like many of those compilation shows/features featured Original bridge animation so it probably wasn't uncomon for sequences within the orignal short changed to fit the overall narritive better. Like in Transylvania 6-5000. Where Bugs's ear change to bat wings in the orignal short but in Quackbusters he report his findings to Dafffy and his ears don't change at all.

So if its former then I think this error has been corrected once for all as its not some Mahatma Gandhi situation as with that line from Bugs Bunny Rides Again. If its the later then It would be worth checking"Satan's Waitin'" episode of "The Bugs Bunny Show" too see if the this rumored alteration actually happened there.
