From the 1930s to the 1950s, if you wanted to see a "Looney Tunes" or "Merrie Melodies" short, you'd have to wait to see them in the theater, when they'd play before a feature film.
All that changed in the 1950s when they started to appear on television. As children, baby boomers could watch the cartoons from the comfort of their living rooms, although the versions they saw were sanitized of some of the more violent, racially-charged and adult behavior that the original cartoons included.
In the late 1980s, Warner Brothers started to release "Looney Tunes" shorts before films, once again. In the early 90s, on the small screen, spin-offs like "Tiny Toon Avdentures" and "Animaniacs" brought another generation of children into the "Looney Tunes" universe.
"Looney Tunes" has managed to stay relevant to multiple generations of children. The most iconic characters haven't changed much, but many more have made their debuts over the years.
