List of unreleased Warner Bros. animated shorts

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



Following is the list of the Looney Tunes animated short subjects proposed by either Warner Bros. Cartoon studio in the 1930s-1960s or Warner Bros. Animation in the 2000s. In 1945, Bob Clampett planned to direct a Looney Tunes cartoon that would fictionalize the life of Franklin D. Roosevelt but when Roosevelt died, the project was abandoned.[1] In the 1950s, Friz Freleng pondered the idea of a one-shot cartoon that would combine Marilyn Monroe's life with the fairy tale of Snow White, but this project was also shelved when it was deemed too similar to Monroe's own personal life.[2] Not all abandoned Looney Tunes shorts were one-shots, as Looney Tunes comprises several sub-series such as Bugs Bunny, Pepé Le Pew and Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, to name a few. It is no surprise that not all planned sub-series did not get off the ground, and many of them ended up either not being produced at all or being reworked into one-shots. Some of these sub-series were the Keystone Kops, Rapid Rabbit and the Quick Brown Fox, Corn Plastered, the Eager Beaver, the Canyon Kiddies, etc. None of these went so far as to have individual titles mapped out.[3][2]

In 2003, Warner Bros. Animation had plans to resume making Looney Tunes shorts, but after the box office failure of Looney Tunes Back in Action, Warner Bros. cancelled several short projects while still in development, as executives thought that interest in slapstick humor and traditional animation was vanishing. Most of these cartoons were in production under the supervision of Larry Doyle.[4]
