1940 is another year of the Looney Tunes golden age.


  • Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd debut in 1940. Elmer in "Elmer's Candid Camera" and Bugs in "A Wild Hare". "Elmer's Candid Camera" was also the last appearance of Bugs' prototype, Happy Rabbit.
  • The finalized "That's all Folks!" writing debuts starting with "Confederate Honey" and is still used today. It is even used on movies and later media as well, like T-shirts. "Confederate Honey" is also the start of the second half of the 1939-40 season where the sky background changes to a black background, but everything else remains the same.
  • Ben Hardaway and Cal Dalton were demoted back to story artists because Friz Freleng returned. Their final short was "Busy Bakers". As a result, Hardaway left the studio. Dalton stayed until 1947.

That's all Folks!

  • The finalized version of the writing debuts in "Confederate Honey" for the second half of the 1939-40 animation season and would be used for every short to this day forward. It is even used on movies and later media as well, like T-shirts.
