Steven Konichek was the composer for the Gene Deitch shorts. Eugene Poddany, Carl Brandt, and Dean Elliott worked on the Chuck Jones shorts.

The shorts from 1963 to 1967 were by Chuck Jones, Maurice Noble (co-direction), Abe Levitow, Jim Pabian, Ben Washam and Tom Ray, most of whom were alumni from Warner Bros. (specifically, Looney Tunes).
