Warner Bros. is the cartoon studio that releaed Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, Duck Dodgers, The Looney Tunes Show, Tiny Toons Adventures, Freakazoid, Pinky and the Brain, Animaniacs, and Loonatics Unleashed. The studio is the only one to be better than Disney.
Leon Schlesinger was the producer of the early Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. Most WB workers describe him as a good boss, although he was against the making of "Bully For Bugs," a Looney Tunes masterpiece.
In 1930, Warner Bros. decided to release a musical short, featuring a happy-go-lucky character named Bosko. They named the short "Sinkin' in the Bathtub," named after the song Singing in the Bathtub.
Bosko, Buddy, and Foxy
These three characters were created by WB to cheer up poor families during the great depression. The characters were not a big hit and are forgotten today.
I Haven't Got A Hat
This was the first short, not to be a musical. It was directed by Friz Freleng. It starred: Beans, Porky Pig, Little Kitty, Miss Cud, Ham, and Ex. For the next few years, Beans the Cat became a huge star, but was not very famous among fans. Finally, Tex Avery stepped in and made Porky Pig the next star. Porky became a huge star and is still remembered today.
Finally, WB began creating major stars, that were used more often than others. These majror characters include: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig, Sylvester, Road Runner, Tweety, Wile E. Coyote, Tazmanian Devil, Marvin the Martian, Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Hippety Hopper, Penelope Pussycat, Granny, and Goofy Gophers. Many other characters have been created, but none to be more famous than the ones above.
The Studio Dies
In the late 60's, the studio finally came to an end. It produced over a thousand cartoons and it is WB's goal to restore all of them and try to get them to DVD. They last few cartoons usually starred Daffy and Speedy, Bugs Bunny, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote.
Warner Bros. is now back, and is a major movie-producing studio, having made films such as Yogi Bear. WB still makes some cartoons, in CG and CGI, such as "Coyote Falls," "Fur of Flying," "Daffy's Rhapsody," "Rabid Rider," and "I Tawt I Taw A Puddy-Tat." They also produce one of the most famous shows on Cartoon Network, The Looney Tunes Show. As previously stated, WB is pursuing its goal of releasing all of the cartoons to DVD.
