Like their live-action counterparts, Looney Tunes short films started out in black and white before switching to color. Still more like features from that era, a few were in color sooner than you might think and some were produced in black and white well after most others switched.

How well do you know your Looney Tunes history? Some of the images below are actually taken from color cartoons, we just turned them monochrome.

Can you guess which ones were originally black and white and which ones should be color?

"You got 11 out of 12" ----------You're a regular cartoon historian. Great job! I got number 10 wrong, I said black and white when it was really color.

Yes, MeTV--Unlike your so-called "cartoon curator", I know my animation history.
I found the humans so insufferable this morning, I changed the channel to Create TV and watched Knit and Crochet Now and then Painting With Wilson. Changed it back to MeTV once the Beav was on.

Correct me if I'm wrong but, there was only one artist who instructed drawing during the years of black and white TV. Can you remember who? Hint: His first and last names were 4 letter words. < gasp! >
