The Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons started out being produced in black-and-white from 1930-1934. In 1934, the Merrie Melodies series got two Cinecolor cartoons to start out and then shortly after, the series transferred to 2-hue Technicolor. By 1935, there were no more black-and-white Merrie Melodies cartoons. In 1936, the series then transferred to 3-hue Technicolor and remained that way until Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes ceased production in 1969.

In 1942 and 1943, some Looney Tunes cartoons were produced in 3-hue Technicolor and some in black-and-white and by 1944, there were no more black-and-white cartoons. However, some cartoons were originally produced in Cinecolor to save Warner Bros. money. This category page lists them.
