ANIMATION BREAKDOWN 2014: Saturday Afternoon Warner Bros. Toons (hosted by Phil Lord & Chris Miller!)

Reports on the demise of the classic Saturday Morning Cartoon are greatly exaggerated — for even if the tradition of weekend kiddie fare has left the air, Warner Bros.’ timeless collection of Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, the Hanna-Barbera library and its decades’ worth of kooky characters are here to stay with us forever. These precious, hilarious, zany and frequently poignant films occupy such a permanent place in our understanding of the Twentieth Century Animated Short, that to some, the phrases “animation” and “Warner Brothers” are completely synonymous. For this special program on ABD’s Saturday afternoon, join Lego Movie/Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller for a handpicked selection of the best of the best, the fastest and funniest Warner Bros. cartoons you must see before you die.

Watch an excerpt from one of Cinefamily’s favorite Looney Tunes, “Duck Amuck”!
