Looney Tunes-1-
Looney Tunes
is a Warner Bros. series of animated short films. It was produced from 1930 to 1969 during the Golden Age of American Animation, alongside its sister series, Merrie Melodies.[1] Looney Tunes originally showcased Warner-owned musical compositions through the adventures of cartoon characters such as Bosko and Buddy. Later Looney Tunes films featured such popular characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Tweety Bird, Sylvester, Granny, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin The Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Witch Hazel, Speedy Gonzales, the Tasmanian Devil, Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner. The characters themselves are commonly referred to as the "Looney Tunes" (or "Looney Toons"). The name Looney Tunes is a parody of Silly Symphonies, the name of Walt Disney's concurrent series of music-based short films. From 1942 into the 1960s, Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were the most popular cartoon shorts in movie theaters, exceeding the works of Disney and other popular competitors, including Paramount Pictures (Popeye the Sailor), Universal Pictures (Woody Woodpecker) and MGM (Tom and Jerry, Droopy, etc.).[2]

TriviaEdit

  • The show aired on Boomerang from 2004-May 2007. It then took a lengthy hiatus until the show finally returned on October 5th, 2013. Prior to that, some Turner-owned shorts could be seen as filler inbetween shows. Reruns are now here instead of Cartoon Network, which dropped the classic Looney Tunes from the network on March 2016.
