I KNOW the toon but but can't name it w/o looking it up. It's a wartime toon from the early to mid 40s. Will look it up--

OK here's my guess (looking at the BB Character Index but not looking up the details):

Falling Hare

By the way any WB fan should have Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies--A Complete Guide to the Warner Bros. Cartoons, by Jerry Beck and Will Friedwald.

It's a great resource, and describes all WB toons by year and later specials, and is indexed and character indexed. I've corrected several errors over the years in my well-worn copy. Unfortunately it's out of print but I think still available.

For those who don't know Jerry Beck is an animation walking encyclopedia.

Do you know if their is a site or book I can visit / read that lists which cartoons where being shown on Nickelodeon, Saturday morning and Turner Broadcasting back in the early 90's? Really curious, because I 'm discovering a lot of Looney Tunes cartoons that I have never seen before.

I don't know how that would be found out, but I have VHS tapes from Nick, with accompanying lists of their contents. But they would undoubtedly be missing some toons they showed--and FYI, they didn't show any pre-1948 (the AAP years) titles.

I also have Beta tapes with lists, from CBS Saturday mornings, lists from local WTHR, and Beta tapes from local WTTV.

TBS/TCM, I don't know about, other than seeing some pre-1948s as filler occasionally. Also, with respect to CN/Boomerang I can tell you, there are toons they would show around Y2K that they wouldn't show now, such as The Egg-Cited Rooster (I know for sure on that one--I have it copied from there), maybe Of Rice and Hen, Trip for Tat. CBS even showed Mississippi Hare, with the beginning edited out. They also showed Dog Gone South. The big "thing" back then was violence, with heavily chopped-up cartoons cutting it out.

If you have specific titles you'd like to know about, I can definitely reply. And yes, we're seeing several unfamiliar toons!

Totally an agreement guess, yes my dear friend, as a WNEW-TV NY/Channel 5 Bugs Bunny & Friends viewer well into when i started my TV career at age 17, yes that is the gremlin title.....without any research......I didn't have much of a relationship with my dad, but he suffered through my hours of 70's local NY TV viewing rerun after rerun and yes tho he died a terrible death, i remember certain things he told me, like what a "A-Card" was!

Thank you dear friend!

Never heard the A-card story, although I heard plenty of war-time stories from my mom. My dad had Alz. and had several years in a nursing home.

From Jerry Beck in the 100 Greatest Looney Tunes book re Falling Hare: "Originally titled Bugs Bunny and the Gremlin, the title was changed shortly before release to appease Disney's interests regarding its quickly abandoned gremlin feature film."

Fascinating. I never noticed some of these, but I'm pretty sure I saw those writer names in Wackiki Wabbit.

In an early 50s Tweety, there is a sign on a building for something like Drink Friz.

My copy of Bugs Bunny Rides Again is old--I'm gonna have to see if that got censored on mine.

Bugs Bunny Rides Again will be on TIWM next Thursday.

I wonder if that picture in the background will be a little fuzzy next week?

Not really on-topic but since books relating to toons came up in thread may i recommend the following......i have no idea the "still in print" status, etc but these are in my collection.......

Kids' TV The First 25 years by Stuart Fischer 1983

Of Mice And Magic by Leonard Maltin 1980

Created & Produced by Total Television Productions by Mark Arnold 2009

Think Pink! The DePatie-Freleng Story by Mark Arnold 2016 (and humbly I have an acknowledgment in this one!)

I have many animation/TV books in my library but consider the ones' listed above the most informative for historical information.

Happy Hunting for anyone interested!

I checked my DVD that has Bugs Bunny Rides Again (a great cartoon by the way) sourced from Cartoon Network, and the scene with the picture is zoomed way out, compared to what is on the MeTV site. It doesn't appear CN did anything special, so we'll see...
