1943 was one of the golden years of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies.


  • After "Puss n' Booty", no more Looney Tunes shorts were produced in black and white. All Looney Tunes shorts from then until July 24, 1948 were part of the Associated Artists Productions library.
  • Also after "Puss n' Booty", all cartoons after that are currently under copyright.
  • "To Duck .... or Not to Duck", "Yankee Doodle Daffy", "The Wise Quacking Duck", and "Daffy - The Commando" were in color this year all featuring Daffy Duck. "The Wise Quacking Duck" however uses the black and white WARNER BROS. Present while the other three use the color one which started in 1942.
  • Starting with "Falling Hare", the WB shield debuts to the finalized one used until 1964. The 1947-53 would use a different one but when the backgrounds changed to smaller in 1954, the WB from 1943-46 was used again. The WB from 1943-46 was also used in Bugs Bunny cartoons from 1945-49.
  • BR Reissues would start from this year and end in 1969.
