  • Porky's Last Stand (LT) (Clampett): Porky Pig, Daffy Duck.
  • The Early Worm Gets the Bird (MM) (Avery) Public Domain.
  • Africa Squeaks (LT) (Clampett): Porky. Isn't a Censored Eleven cartoon, but no one is likely to see it due to the African savage stereotypes. Nickelodeon once aired it with no scenes of the African savages.
  • Mighty Hunters (MM) (Jones): Based on Good Housekeeping "Canyon Kiddies" stories.
  • Ali Baba Bound (LT) (Clampett): Porky. Public Domain.
  • Busy Bakers (MM) (Hardaway, Dalton): Last cartoon directed by Ben Hardaway and Cal Dalton.
  • Elmers Candid Camera (MM) (Jones): Debut of Elmer Fudd. Fourth appearance of the Proto-Bugs. Considered by fans to be their least favorite Chuck Jones cartoon (next to maybe the Censored 11 short, Angel Puss) and one of many reasons why Chuck Jones despised his pre-1948 work.
  • Pilgrim Porky (LT) (Clampett): Porky.
  • Cross-Country Detours (MM) (Avery)
  • Confederate Honey (MM) (Freleng): Elmer. Freleng's return short for Warner Bros. after his ill-fated MGM stint. Not a Censored 11 cartoon, but does have a lot of stereotypical black caricatures in it, making any chance of seeing this short uncut on TV (or at all on TV) slim to none.
  • Slap-Happy Pappy (LT) (Clampett): Porky.
  • The Bear's Tale (MM) (Avery)
  • The Hardship of Miles Standish (MM) (Freleng): Elmer.

  • Little Blabbermouse (MM) (Freleng): Little Blabbermouse.
  • The Egg Collector (MM)(Jones): Sniffles.
  • A Wild Hare (MM) (Avery): Official debut of Bugs Bunny and the basis for the Bugs vs. Elmer cartoons. In the original version, Elmer guessed Carole Lombard's name in Bugs' game of "Guess Who"? Following Carole Lombard's death in a plane crash (which happened two years after the cartoon premiered), the Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodie rerelease replaced "Carole Lombard" with "Barbara Stanwyck."
  • Ghost Wanted (MM) (Jones)
  • Patient Porky (LT) (Clampett): Porky, Daffy. A remake to "The Daffy Doc".

  • The Cat's Tale (MM) (Freleng)

  • Porky's Bear Facts (LT) (Freleng): Porky. Public Domain.
  • Goofy Groceries (MM) (Clampett): Clampett's first Merrie Melodies short.
  • Toy Trouble (MM) (Jones): Sniffles.
  • Porky's Preview (LT) (Avery): Porky. Avery's only short that uses the streamlined Porky Pig design rather than the morbidly obese Porky that Avery used in the 1930s. Public Domain.

  • Meet John Doughboy (Clampett): Porky.
  • The Heckling Hare (MM): Bugs. Last Warner Brothers cartoon directed by Tex Avery. The original ending in which Bugs and Willoughby the dog fell down another cliffside was deleted before release (why this was done is still unknown: one story says it was to censor a risque punchline; another story says that Leon Schlesinger objected to Tex Avery allegedly wanting Bugs Killed Off for Real). Because of the arguments over the lost ending, Avery left WB and got hired at MGM.
  • Inki and the Lion (MM) (Jones): Inki.
  • Aviation Vacation (MM) (Avery): Even though Tex Avery was in the process of creating this cartoon before he got fired, it was Bob Clampett who finished it. Clampett was not credited.

  • Tick Tock Tuckered (Clampett): Shot for Shot Remake (with color, and Daffy in place of Gabby Goat) of "Porky's Badtime Story".

  • Hare Ribbin' (Clampett): Bugs. Notable for having two different endings (both of which are considered too violent for American TV): 1. The theatrical version, which has the dog shooting himself in the head. 2. The "Director's Cut", which has Bugs himself shoot the dog.

  • Odor-able Kitty (Jones): First Pepe Le Pew cartoon and the only time Bugs Bunny appears in a Pepe cartoon (even though the Bugs appearance was the cat flawlessly disguising himself to get away from Pepe). Has a lot of Early Installment Weirdness in it, compared to the usual Pepe cartoons. For starters, the cat Pepe chases is a male, the cartoon doesn't take place in France, and in the end, Pepe turns out to be a married skunk — with two children and a very angry wife — who doesn't regularly speak with a French accent.
  • Herr Meets Hare (Freleng): Bugs. First time Bugs uses the line "I knew I shoulda taken a left turn at Albuquerque!" whenever he gets lost.
