Looney Tunes is a cartoon series produced by Warner Bros. and Leon Schlesinger Productions from 1930 through the end of the decade. It was a companion series to Merrie Melodies, also produced by Warner and Schlesinger, and was originally intended to showcase Warner's immense music catalog in animated form.

In the 1930s, the Looney Tunes series produced entirely black and white cartoons, in stark contrast to Merrie Melodies, which eventually switched to color in 1934.
