1939 is one of the years in the Golden Age of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies.

History

  • "VITAPHONE" and "Presents" changes to "WARNER BROS." "Present". First, it was in a banner until "Hare-um Scare-um". The last cartoon with "VITAPHONE" and "Presents" was "Daffy Duck and the Dinosaur". The WB shield becomes a bit smaller when the banner changed to "WARNER BROS." and "Present" starting with "Porky and Teabiscuit", with the exception of "Believe It or Else".
  • The Porky drum ending is redesigned starting with "Jeepers Creepers", although it should have started with "Porky's Hotel".
  • The finalized Looney Tunes logo debuts in "Porky's Hotel", however, it had the 1937-39 Porky ending instead of the 1939-46 one.
  • Starting with "Wise Quacks", the banner goes away.
  • Starting with "Land of the Midnight Fun", the background changes to the sky, with red white and blue Color Rings for the first half of the 1939-40 season.
  • Friz Freleng returns to the studio after directing at MGM on the ill-fated The Captain and the Kids film series and takes over Ben Hardaway and Cal Dalton's unit.[1]
  • Ben Hardaway is placed as the head of the story department while Cal Dalton returns to animating.[1]
