''Screen Songs'' is the name of a series of animated cartoons produced by the Creator/FleischerStudios and distributed by Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures between [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1929 and 1938]], serving as a sister series to WesternAnimation/{{Talkartoons}}. They were revived by Creator/FamousStudios in 1945 starting with the WesternAnimation/{{Noveltoons}} short "When G.I. Johnny Comes Home". It morphed into ''Kartunes'' by mid-1951 after Max Fleischer sued Paramount over the use of the name, and lasted to 1953--1954, if you count the WesternAnimation/{{Noveltoons}} short "Candy Cabaret", which follows the same format as the previous cartoons. The formula was tried one last time in the 1963 Noveltoon "Hobo's Holiday".

* ExecutiveMeddling: When National Telefilms Associates acquired the rights to the cartoons, they blacked out almost every reference to Paramount Studios on the title cards. They even cut the last few seconds of the short "The Big Drip" simply because it made a reference to the Paramount mountain.
