    TV Series 
  • The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show (1960-2000): an installment show of the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theatrical shorts. Over the years, it's been on many channels under many names (The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show, The Porky Pig Show [ABC], The Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales Show [NBC], Bugs and Daffy [Cartoon Network and some international and domestic syndication packages], The Merrie Melodies Show [FOX and its syndicated affiliates], The Looney Tunes Show [Cartoon Network],note  That's Warner Bros! [The WB], The Bugs n' Daffy Show [also The WB], The Acme Hour [Cartoon Network and Boomerang], and Looney Tunes on Nickelodeon [Nickelodeon]. These days on Cartoon Network and Boomerang, it's referred to simply as "Looney Tunes").
  • Tiny Toon Adventures (1990-1995): a show with pretty much tiny expies of the classic Warners characters with the original characters as teachers/mentors to this "new generation" of Looney Tunes characters.
    • Tiny Toons Looniversity (2023-present): a reboot of Tiny Toons which transitions the characters into a college setting.
  • Taz-Mania (1991-1995): an animated sitcom depicting Taz living with his parents and young siblings.
  • The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries (1995-2002): animated series depicting Granny as an amateur detective with her pet bird (Tweety), pet cat (Sylvester), and pet pitbull (Hector).
  • Baby Looney Tunes (2002-2005): Can best be described as Muppet Babies meets Looney Tunes and, next to Loonatics Unleashed, is despised for trying to alter the Looney Tunes characters for modern sensibilities, in this case, making them Lighter and Softer.
  • Duck Dodgers (2003-2005): Focused on Daffy Duck's "Duck Dodgers" character from the 1953 cartoon "Duck Dodgers in the 24th And A Half Century."
  • Loonatics Unleashed (2005-2007): Action series that has the Looney Tunes' descendants as post-apocalyptic fighters. Like Baby Looney Tunes, this was despised for trying to alter the characters for modern sensibilities. In this case, they were made Darker and Edgier.
  • The Looney Tunes Show (2011-2014): animated series set up like a sitcom with the Looney Tunes characters. While it has most of the characters back to the way they were from the older cartoons, some purists will tell you that this is yet another slap in the face to the franchise. It had a brief, but memorable run on Cartoon Network and was part of Cartoon Network's "Win Back the Crowd after the CN Real fiasco" based era that also included the premieres of Adventure Time, Regular Show, and The Amazing World of Gumball. Shares its name with Cartoon Network's version of The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show.
  • Wabbit: A Looney Tunes Production (2015-2019): Debuted on Cartoon Network, and later appeared on Boomerang's streaming service. Like The Looney Tunes Show, it has a distinct visual style that is different from any of the classic shorts. Revamped to be a variety/sketch show in the same vein as The Bugs Bunny Show back in the 1960s. Each short is five minutes in length, with four of them stitched together to fill a half hour slot.) In the second season, the show was renamed New Looney Tunes.
  • Looney Tunes Cartoons (2019-2023): A return to roots for the Looney Tunes that will consist of 1,000 minutes worth of 1-6 minute shorts.
  • Bugs Bunny Builders (2022-present): A series for preschoolers that features the characters as a wacky construction crew.
