1959 was one of the years of the Golden Age of Looney Tunes.


  • Baton Bunny was the final short to be given a Blue Ribbon Reissue and the only short reissued this year.
  • During this year, Dog Gone South was the final short that retained the original ending on the Blue Ribbon Reissue. Starting late from this year and onwards, the original ending would also be removed (but not the credits. However also, some shorts like Putty Tat Trouble, French Rarebit and Merrie Melodies shorts with orange rings made in 1956-1957 kept the original ending despite being reissued in the 1959-1969 season)
