Looney Tunes is a franchise based on the animated comedy short film series produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969. It is associated, and sometimes used synonymously, with the Merrie Melodies series.
"Looney Tunes" is the generic term by which all Warner's animation is now known and sold, is a brand name more than anything nowadays, but is most heavily associated with the "classic" theatrical shorts.

- Rabbit Habit,Archive link- A parody animated short released in 1975 by Steve Peck. According to him:
"I showed it to Tex Avery in 1975 when he was 80 and he loved it and said "I wish I had a job to give you." Showed it to Chuck Jones. He was very conservative and did not like what I had done to his characters and did not offer me a job. It got huge laughs at festivals.
