Richard "The Great Stoneini" Stone (1953-2001) was a composer who is primarly known for his work on the animated WBA shows of the '90s. While he isn't entirely responsible for creating a spiritual successor to the music style used in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts (other composers on ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' did the same), he deserves credit for his extensive contributions to the shows of the time, and for taking full advantage of the orchestra, something which hadn't been used in animation for years outside of theatrical animated films.
