-->--The Saturday morning block's intro sequence from Fall 1996.

The Saturday-morning and weekday afternoon childrens' programming block on TheWB (and TheCW for its first one-and-a-half years), which deserves special mention as being not only the longest-running Saturday-morning block in television history, but also the only block of its kind to outlive the channel it was created for.

The name now lives on as a website featuring the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts, the HannaBarbera library, and the DCComics-based cartoons.
