''Noveltoons'' was a long running anthology series of animated cartoons produced by the Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures cartoon outlet FamousStudios from [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1943]] to the close of the studio in [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation 1967]]. WesternAnimation/CasperTheFriendlyGhost, WesternAnimation/HermanAndKatnip, WesternAnimation/LittleAudrey, and WesternAnimation/BabyHuey all got their start from this series. It was the successor series to the ''WesternAnimanion/ColorClassics'' series produced by Creator/FleischerStudios (indeed, several Noveltoons would feature characters who originated in ''Color Classics''). This series was also very similar to the two series from Warner Bros., WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]], in that it features several recurring characters under one umbrella title.

Currently, the ''Noveltoons'' trademarks, characters and related elements, including the October 1950-1962 cartoons, are owned by Creator/{{Universal}} Studios through their [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation [=DreamWorks=] Classics]] unit, as they acquired [=DreamWorks=] Animation in 2016, making them the second studio along with Creator/WarnerBros to own multiple Golden Age cartoon libraries from other studios (Warner Bros. owns the MGM cartoon library as well as Paramount's ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' cartoons through Turner Entertainment). Ironically, Universal also owns most of Paramount's pre-November 1949 sound features through the InNameOnly unit, EMKA, Ltd.

As the [[UsefulNotes/TheFallOfTheStudioSystem studio system began to collapse]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation the Golden Age of animation was coming to an end]], Paramount began to see little value in their cartoons and the characters they had owned/created. Ultimately, the pre-October 1950 Noveltoons were sold to television distributor U.M.&M. T.V. Corp. in 1956. National Telefilm Associates acquired those cartoons soon afterward. Paramount sold the rest of the Noveltoons from that point, including the characters who appeared in them, to Creator/HarveyComics in 1959. As new Noveltoons were produced, they were also sold to Harvey, until 1962. Harvey Comics was later sold to Classic Media in 2000.
