Kit for Cat is a 1948 Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Friz Freleng. The title is a pun on the term 'tit for tat'. The cartoon begins with Sylvester in an alley, strolling past the line of trash cans as if he is at a buffet, trying to find bits of appetizing food; a kitten arrives and starts doing the same, Sylvester yells at him that "this side of the street" is his and throws the kitten away. The weather is freezing and snowy; Sylvester finds a house and bangs on the door, begging for shelter. He falls down, 'frozen', when Elmer Fudd answers the door.
The Hare-Brained Hypnotist is a Bugs Bunny cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, released on October 31, 1942. The cartoon stars Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. This cartoon's plot was re-worked for the 1955 cartoon Hare Brush and its opening music was re-used in the 1946 cartoon Hair-Raising Hare, the 1952 cartoon The Super Snooper and the 1955 cartoon Hyde and Hare. The title, instead of employing the usual "hare" vs. "hair" pun, is standard spelling, for the expression that indicates thoughtlessness or recklessness. Elmer Fudd permanently goes back to his regular design starting with this cartoon.
Whoa, Be-Gone! is a 1958 cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series featuring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. Eddie Selzer, who produced all of Warner Bros. cartoons since September 1944, retired in 1958. Whoa, Be-Gone! was the final cartoon he produced. John W. Burton took over after this release.

Congo Jazz was the first cartoon to feature Bosko's falsetto voice that he would use for the bulk of the series' run (the previous Bosko short, Sinkin' in the Bathtub, had used a derisive African-American dialect). It has the earliest instance of a "trombone gobble" in animation. Songs: "When the Little Red Roses Get the Blues for You" arr. Frank Marsales. "I'm Crazy for Cannibal Love"
An Itch in Time is a 1943 cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Bob Clampett and starring Elmer Fudd and a dog and cat that look very similar to, if not modified versions of Willoughby the Dog and Claude Cat. It is in the public domain. The voice of A. Flea is uncredited and was provided by Sara Berner, except for the character screaming "T-Bone!" which was done by Mel Blanc. Blanc also performs the voice of the dog and the cat. As usual, Arthur Q. Bryan is the voice of Elmer. A. Flea would make another appearance in 1947's A Horse Fly Fleas, directed by Robert McKimson, in which the "A" in the flea's name is revealed to stand for "Anthony".
Ration Bored is the ninth animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on July 26, 1943, the film was produced by Walter Lantz. This is the only Woody Woodpecker entry to be directed by storyman Milt Schaffer and animator Emery Hawkins. They filled in for the previous series directors Walter Lantz and Alex Lovy; Lantz had stopped directing films for several years and Lovy had left the studio after working on The Dizzy Acrobat to serve in the war. With the next entry, The Barber of Seville, they would be replaced by veteran animator James "Shamus" Culhane as series director. This is also the final time Kent Rogers would voice Woody before his death in a World War II plane crash on July 9, 1944.
The Barber of Seville is the tenth animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on April 22, 1944, the film was produced by Walter Lantz. The Barber of Seville was the first cartoon to feature a more streamlined character design for Woody Woodpecker, courtesy of veteran animator Emery Hawkins and art director Art Heinemann. In prior shorts, Woody had had a more grotesque appearance, including buck teeth, a receding chin, and thick stubby legs. Heinemann removed these features, and restructured Woody's body to conform to the modern animation standards in use for characters. In 1994, The Barber of Seville was voted #43 of The 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time, as voted by 1000 animation professionals and edited by Jerry Beck. It is the only Woody Woodpecker entry included in the list. Music by Darrell Calker and Gioacchino Rossini.
Daffy Duck Hunt is a 1949 animated Looney Tunes cartoon, directed by Robert McKimson, and starring Porky Pig, Daffy Duck and Barnyard Dawg. Porky is hunting duck for dinner, and Daffy has too much fun toying with the pig and his dog. This marks a rare occasion where Barnyard Dawg does not use his familiar voice and one of four occasions where Barnyard appears in a non-Foghorn Leghorn cartoon.
Hare Ribbin' is a 1944 animated short film in the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Robert Clampett and featuring Bugs Bunny.

It was released in theaters on June 24, 1944. The title is a pun on "hair ribbon".

Crazy Cruise is a 1942 cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series. It was directed by Tex Avery and Bob Clampett, whose names do not appear on the surviving print of the cartoon. Because Tex left the studio in September 1941 before production was completed (it was the last he worked on), Clampett finished it, and both names were officially left off the credits. The only credits given are the story by Michael Maltese, animation by Rod Scribner, and musical direction by Carl Stalling.
Pigs in a Polka is a one-reel animated cartoon short subject in the Merrie Melodies series, produced in Technicolor and released to theatres on February 2, 1943. It was produced by Leon Schlesinger and directed by Friz Freleng, with musical supervision by Carl W. Stalling. There is very little dialogue in the cartoon aside from the Big Bad Wolf's introduction of the story and the pigs introducing themselves. The film is a parody of two Walt Disney films: 1933 Three Little Pigs and 1940 Fantasia. The familiar story of the Three Little Pigs is set in this film to several of Brahms' "Hungarian Dances", specifically No. 5, No. 7, No. 6 and No. 17 which appear in that order. It is also part of a light-hearted, culturally subversive Merrie Melodies running joke, which would later be re-emphasized with another Fantasia parody, 1943's A Corny Concerto. It was nominated for the 1942 Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoons.
Baton Bunny is a Bugs Bunny cartoon of the Looney Tunes series, produced in 1958 and released in January 10, 1959. It shows Bugs conducting an orchestra - with a fly bothering him. Bugs conducts, and in part, plays the overture to "Ein Morgen, ein Mittag und Abend in Wien" (A Morning, Noon, and Night in Vienna)", a composition by Franz von Suppé. Though Mel Blanc was credited for vocal characterizations, there is no dialogue in the short; the only vocal effect made was when an audience member is heard coughing. This is the third and last Bugs Bunny cartoon (the first two being A Corny Concerto and Rhapsody Rabbit, although he says three lines in the latter) where Bugs is silent. Or, nearly silent; at one point, he 'shushes' the brass. This is also the last cartoon to get a Merrie Melodies Blue Ribbon reissue in 1968.
One Froggy Evening is a 1955 American Technicolor animated musical short film written by Michael Maltese and directed by Chuck Jones, with musical direction by Milt Franklyn. The short, partly inspired by a 1944 Cary Grant film entitled Once Upon a Time involving a dancing caterpillar in a small box, marks the debut of Michigan J. Frog. This popular short contained a wide variety of musical entertainment, with songs ranging from "Hello! Ma Baby" and "I'm Just Wild About Harry", two Tin Pan Alley classics, to "Largo al Factotum", Figaro's aria from the opera Il Barbiere di Siviglia. The short was released on December 31 (New Year's Eve), 1955 as part of Merrie Melodies series of cartoons.

To Duck or Not to Duck is a Looney Tunes cartoon released in theatres in 1943, directed by Chuck Jones and featuring Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd. It is one of very few cartoons to have both Elmer Fudd and Daffy Duck that does not involve Bugs Bunny in any form (and thus does not have Daffy and Bugs' famous "duck season/rabbit season" argument).
Raw! Raw! Rooster! is a Looney Tunes (reissued as Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies in 1961) cartoon animated short starring Foghorn Leghorn. Released in 1956, the cartoon is directed by Robert McKimson. The voices were performed by Mel Blanc and uncredited Daws Butler.
Daffy Duck Slept Here is a 1948 cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Robert McKimson, starring Porky Pig and Daffy Duck. All voices are by Mel Blanc. The title is a play on the old cliché, "George Washington slept here" - also the title of a recent film. This is essentially a sequel to 1947's A Pest in the House, which also features Daffy disturbing a hotel patron's sleep.

Duck Amuck is an American surreal animated cartoon directed by Chuck Jones. The short film was released in early 1953. It stars Daffy Duck, who is tormented by a seemingly sadistic, initially unseen animator, who constantly changes Daffy's locations, clothing, voice, physical appearance and even shape, much to Daffy's aggravation and rage.

In the end, the tormenting animator is revealed to be Bugs Bunny.
Tortoise Wins by a Hare is a Merrie Melodies cartoon released on February 20, 1943 and directed by Bob Clampett. It stars Bugs Bunny and Cecil Turtle.

A newspaper's front page (the Chicago Sunday Tribunk) shown in this cartoon accurately predicts Adolf Hitler's suicide two years later.

Martian Through Georgia is a 1962 Looney Tunes cartoon, directed by Chuck Jones, Maurice Noble (credited as a co-director), and Abe Levitow, although it features none of the established studio characters.

Once there, he decides he must impart his knowledge upon Earthlings; indeed he believes this is what will bring him happiness. However, the people of Earth panic from the minute he lands, perceiving him as a monster. Ultimately, he realizes that he does not belong and returns home. The title is a pun on the song Marching Through Georgia.

C. Silvoney, and later performed on The Jackie Gleason Show as Crazy Guggenheim. The title is a play on "rabbit skin", but is also a literal term in that Bugs is caring for a "kin", here, another rabbit.
Big House Bunny is a 1950 Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny cartoon, released in 1950 and directed by Friz Freleng. Needing to get away from hunters, Bugs digs a tunnel and accidentally winds up in Sing Song Prison (a clear reference to Sing Sing Prison; "No Hanging Around").

The Birth of a Notion is a Looney Tunes cartoon animated in 1946 and released in 1947. It was reissued as a Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies cartoon, retitled Birth of a Notion, with the ending theme song still being that of the Looney Tunes cartoon. It features Daffy Duck, as well as a dog named Leopold and an unnamed mad scientist. Director Robert McKimson used his "Barnyard Dawg" character design as Leopold, while the scientist is a caricature, both visually and vocally, of Peter Lorre. The title is a play on The Birth of a Nation, but there is no other connection to that 1915 film. The Birth of a Notion is one of three shorts that had been scheduled for direction by Bob Clampett before he left the studio, the other two were Bacall to Arms and The Goofy Gophers, both of which were finished by Arthur Davis. Mel Blanc voiced Daffy Duck, Leopold and Joe Besser Duck, while an uncredited Stan Freberg voiced the mad scientist.
Buccaneer Bunny is a 1948 Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Friz Freleng. The cartoon opens with titles featuring an instrumental of "The Sailor's Hornpipe" (also one of the theme songs to the Popeye cartoon series), seguéing to a scene of Sam digging a hole to bury his treasure on a beach. Sam is singing the stereotypical pirate shanty "Dead Man's Chest"—on the second strain, Sam switches from the typical "yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!" to a decidedly more original "yo-ho-ho and a bottle of... Ma's old fashioned ci-der" with a conga kick on the last syllable and a parody of "Dad's Old-Fashioned Root Beer", a well-known radio advertising jingle at that time.
Wagon Heels is a Merrie Melodies short directed by Bob Clampett. Released on July 28, 1945, it is a color remake of the 1938 Looney Tunes black-and-white short Injun Trouble. Because of its perceived wildly stereotypical and insensitive depiction of the Native American, it is seldom shown on television. All voices except narration are performed by Mel Blanc, whose screen credit is his first in a non-Bugs Bunny cartoon. In addition to the usual Native American stereotype music, Carl Stalling's underscore frequently plays segments of the American Civil War tune, "Kingdom Coming", even converting it to a minor key in one segment. "Oh! Susanna" is also heard repeatedly in the underscore.
The Abominable Snow Rabbit is a six-minute 1961 Looney Tunes theatrical cartoon starring Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

It is directed by Bob Clampett, written by Warren Foster and scored by Carl Stalling. The Characters' voices were provided by Mel Blanc, Sara Berner, Bea Benaderet, and Richard Bickenbach, who were uncredited.

Have You Got Any Castles?, reissued as Have You Got Any Castles, is a 1938 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Frank Tashlin.

As characters from other books cheer them on.

Steal Wool is a 1957 American Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Chuck Jones and released by Warner Bros. Pictures featuring Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog.

This is the fourth short featuring Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog. The title is a play on steel wool.
Hare Force is a 1944 cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Friz Freleng and starring Bugs Bunny and an old lady. Although the title is an obvious play on Air Force, the cartoon's plot has nothing to do with the military.
