Western Animation: Happy Harmonies

Happy Harmonies is a series of animated cartoons distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and produced by former Disney and Warner Bros. employees Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising between 1934 and 1938.

Produced in Technicolor (although the first two were in Cinecolor), these cartoons were the duos answer to Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies. They would occasionally feature their star character Bosko, a character who starred in the first Looney Tunes shorts that the duo produced for Leon Schlesinger. After the first few releases, the design of Bosko changed from an ink blot to a realistic African American boy. 36 cartoons were made in this series.

Harman And Ising would also make many oneshot cartoons for MGM after this series folded, which were still in a similar vein to this series, such as Peace on Earth. A couple of Happy Harmonies shorts (Good Little Monkeys and Little Cheeser) spawned sequels even after the series was discontinued.
