Just goes to show you how much animation can change in 40 years. …I don’t think I would’ve gotten into to researching old animation if it wasn’t for the Looney Tunes shorts. Shows like Toon Heads and the Bob Clampett Show that used to air on Cartoon Network we’re my first gateway to animation history. (synopsis via Laughing Squid)
There are, as it turns out, a lot of Looney Tunes cartoons out there.
Not surprising since they arrived with pleasing regularity between 1929 and 1969, the golden age of Looney Tunes which were an accompaniment to many a cinema screening and later found their way to a whole new home and lease of life on television.
One person who appreciates this wealth of animation creativity is anime video essayist KaiserBeamz (KB) who has created a fantastic montage video that shows one second from each of the cartoons produced for the series in the four decades cited.
It’s an impressive undertaking and helps you appreciate all the more how much we have gained from having Bugs, Daffy and the rest of the wacky gang in our lives.
