Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies





So what's the difference between these two?

To copy from Wikipedia:
In the beginning, both Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies drew their storylines from Warner's vast music library. However, eventually the two series distinguished themselves by Looney Tunes becoming the umbrella for the studio's various recurring characters, while Merrie Melodies continued with the use of one-shot characters. Also, from 1934 to 1943 Merrie Melodies were produced in color and Looney Tunes in black and white; after 1943, however, both series were produced in color; the only real difference between the two series was in the variation between the opening theme music and titles. Both series also made use of the various Warner Bros. cartoon characters

Since I've been watching clips from YouTube and from my DVD, I figured we could get something rolling

Thankfully YouTube has not pulled out any of the videos. I've been watching "The Ducksters" and "Sahara Hare" at the moment

Oh, and also this scene Bugs Bunny Tutting

Which block is that? I remember Cartoon Network used to have Acme Hour (which they stopped once upon a time!)

YouTube has a plentiful of episodes, although some you have to watch out for because of the Spanish dubbing.

Same, but having at least a DVD pack helps once in a while.

Sad that we won't get to see crazy stuff like this in today's cartoons. Hitler impersonators and Nazi costumes of its time. The closest one would get to a Nazi reference is South Park.

I love the old Looney Tunes, some of the ones that actually play on historical stuff we actually watched in the history class I took last semester.
