Background: Sunset Productions was a division of Guild Films, commissioned by Warner Bros. to distribute their black & white, animated short subjects to television. WB regained control of the Sunset shorts after merging with Seven Arts in 1967.

  • Opening: On a "sky" background (a dark red background instead for the redrawn colorized variant), we see these characters: Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Bozo, a rabbit from Hop and Go, the drunk dog heckler from Shake Your Powder Puff, and an ally cat from Sittin' on a Backyard Fence. On the bottom, it reads "Copyright (year) by SUNSET PRODUCTIONS, Inc.
  • "Closing: The same image, but the words "THE END - A Guild Films Presentation" appear instead of copyright information.
Variant: A redrawn colorized version of the logo exists.

FX/SFX: None, it's a still logo.

Music/Sound: Depending on the cartoon, the music varies (mostly it's the first half of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down").

Availability: Extinct. Since these titles were done to cover up the Warner Bros. references (including the zooming WB shield), they are not necessary to be used today. You can still find these titles on public domain prints of various black and white Looney Tunes cartoons.

Editors Note: None.
