Warner Bros. is one of the world's largest producers of film and television entertainment. They operate a movie studio, an animation studio, television including their WB network, and DC Comics.

History[edit]

Warner Bros. was founded in 1903 by the brothers Warner: Harry Warner, Albert Warner, Sam Warner, and Jack L. Warner. They were the first movie studio to introduce the concept of a talking picture in 1927 with The Jazz Singer. In 1929, they were also responsible for the first all-color all-talking feature, On with the Show.

One of the major film studios, it is a subsidiary of Time Warner, with its headquarters in Burbank, California, USA, and New York.

Animation division[edit]

In 1930, Leon Schlesinger founded his own animated cartoon company in 1930, which Warner would purchase in 1944. Schlesinger's cartoons were mostly musical cartoons that would later become known as Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. Both featured jazz soundtracks by popular artists of the time.

Eventually, animators such as Jack King and Friz Freleng, Tex Avery signed on, creating the legendary Termite Terrace. The group would produce Looney Tunes until 1969 when it closed its doors. In 1980, Warner Bros. Animation reopened to produce films and television specials starring the Looney Tunes characters. In 1990, they moved to regular TV with the furry favorite Tiny Toon Adventures and later the other popular Animaniacs.

Warner Bros. and furry[edit]

Warner Bros. has been responsible for many furry favorite funny animal characters, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Pepé Le Pew, Fifi La Fume, as well as many other cast members of Looney Tunes, Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures.
