The Cat & Birdy Warneroonie Pinky Brainy Big Cartoonie Show

The Cat & Birdy Warneroonie Pinky Brainy Big Cartoonie Show

Synopsis of Saturday Morning Show

In early 1999, Warner Bros. combined several of its hit cartoons into the show with possibly the longest name in ‘toon history, The Cat & Birdy Warneroonie Pinky Brainy Big Cartoonie Show. The featured segments:

Animaniacs followed the anarchic Warner Brothers and Sister—Yakko, Wakko, and Dot—in their antics around the Warner Bros. lot. The many other supporting shorts from this show were also featured.

Bugs and Daffy ran classic cartoon shorts from the classic Warner characters.

Pinky and the Brain were the pair of gene-spliced lab mice determined to take over the world. The show also featured episodes with unbearably loving Elmyra, from Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain.

The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries brought the cat and bird rivals together with Granny and Hector the bulldog to solve the world’s mysteries.

The Big Cartoonie Show began as an hour-long compilation, but was shortened to half an hour after a few episodes, dropping Sylvester & Tweety and Bugs and Daffy. It also eventually underwent a name change, switching over to The Cat and Bunny Warneroonie Super Looney Big Cartoonie Show. The new title wasn't any easier to say, but it did reflect the return of Bugs and Daffy and the arrival of Tiny Toon Adventures reruns.
