Walt Disney vs. Warner Bros. (Mickey Mouse vs. Bugs Bunny)

(The following text you are about to read was an opinion created by the individual (that's me) with different ways of thinking. There are opinions created for theories, respect, appreciation, bravery, knowledge, & virtue. But there are opinions created for hate, negativity, cowardice, laziness, and making mountains out of molehills.
Everyone in this world have different opinions, but people can agree or disagree each other's opinions, because we are different people with different & unique minds.)


From 1928 to 1942, the Fleischer Studios was the great rival to Walt Disney Studios. It has innovative technology & great animation talents just like Walt Disney’s studio, It has it’s own animated superstars named KoKo the Clown & Betty Boop, It has 2 animated movies to compete with Disney’s animated movies, & it was successful in creating the animated adaptions of "Popeye (the comic strip)" & "Superman (the comic book)". But there was Walt Disney’s rival that is more stronger & better than the Fleischer Studios, & It has the animation studio talents & techniques & the creations of the characters’ personalities that makes it a tougher competitor to Walt Disney Studios, & It’s cartoons even surpassed Disney’s cartoons in sales and popularity in 1942!

The #1 rival & arch-rival of Walt Disney Studios is...
Warner Bros. Cartoons, Inc. (aka "Leon Schlesinger Productions" & "Termite Terrace").

It mostly doesn’t have innovative technology like Fleischer’s & Disney’s, & It does not produce any animated movies from the 1940's to the 1960's (WB’s "Gay Purr-ee" was really UPA’s creation, this movie was just distributed by WB), But from 1929 to 1964, WB’s original animation studio founded by Leon Schlesinger was innovative, talented, creative & smart-thinking on their efforts on humor & comedy, story & script, creating characters & their personalities, animating animation, & making people laugh & enjoy the good things in life. & another fact is, both Mickey Mouse & Bugs Bunny are brave & heroic good guys that stand up against the bad guys and kicked their butts in any way!

In my opinion: Since I was born, I learned that the animated films & cartoons of Walt Disney & Warner Bros. both have a lot in common, they are high-quality films created by the wonderfully-talented studio team who are hard-working, unique, great-thinking, creative-skilled, appreciated, & are strong at believing in themselves!

Like Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi, Nintendo vs. Sega (until 2001), & Star Trek vs. Star Wars,
I think that Walt Disney & Warner Bros. will always be the greatest rivals!

WB: Warner Bros. has bought Hanna-Barbera (renamed "Cartoon Network Studios") & DC Comics.

The owners of Warner Bros. (Time Warner) actually acquired Hanna-Barbera Productions as part of their purchase of Turner Broadcasting.

 Both are great, but I like the WB animated shorts a lot better. WB has so many shorts that I really like, while the majority of Disney shorts I really like are ones with historical significance (Steamboat Willie) or are really well-known (Three Little Pigs, Der Fuehrers Face). Though there are some shorts that I don't think fit either of those categories that I do really like (some of which I only recently found out about), such as Donald's Dilemma, Donald's Happy Birthday, Duck Pimples, and all of the Three Little Pigs sequels.

For me, they are apple and oranges.  In other words, Disney is the apple as they are sweet and juicy, while Warners is the orange as they are tangy and juicy.  Simple as that.

I actually enjoy both Disney  :mickey: and Warner Bros.  :bugs: cartoons.

One difference I noticed between the two is the pacing of the cartoons. The Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons deliver their humor in a fast-paced, violent slapstick manner. The cartoons have a lot of gags and they happen quite quickly.

The Disney cartoons, however, deliver their humor in a more slow manner. I do not believe they drag the jokes and story to a molasses speed; the cartoons are still entertaining and bring on chuckles. The Disney cartoons seem to focus a lot on the story and characters in addition to some jokes.

When the Looney Tunes series began in 1930, the cartoons starring Bosko  :bosko: borrowed a lot of elements from the early Mickey Mouse cartoons. In fact, there isn't much difference between a black-and-white Mickey and Warners Bosko. Chuck Jones' Sniffles  :sniff: cartoons also seem like the late '30s and '40s Disney cartoons. The familiar slapstick-filled Warner cartoons came to be when Tex Avery arrived at the studio in the mid-'30s.

So which studio's cartoons do I prefer? It depends. If I want nonstop laughs, I'll watch a Looney Tune or Merrie Melody. If I want whimsical and often humorous short stories, I'll watch a Donald Duck  :donald: or Pluto. When it comes to golden age animation, they are both entertaining and fun to analyze.
Happy Holidays, everyone!

Intresting comparions actaully strikingly similar. When you think about it.

But I know that if you dd comparioson like this to the two biggest English Soccer clubs. The outcome would be strikingly similar.  So I think generally that two biggest in any industry I think have more smiliarities than we care to admit.

WB: Tex Avery revolts against Leon Schlesinger &

1941 also saw the little-known "Looney Tune Lockout"
From The Animation Guild:
Quote
"In 1941, Leon Schlesinger, who had been producing cartoons for Warner Bros. since the mid-thirties, tried to lock out the Guild animators. This was the “Looney Tune Lockout”, or “our own little Six-Day War” as Chuck Jones called it. Schlesinger gave in after six days and signed with the Guild."


Left: Manny Perez tries the door. Right: Ben Washam (later president of Local 839), Roy Laupenberger, unknown, Paul Marin, Martha Goldman (Sigall).

Honestly, I like Warner's cartoons better, but nobody can deny the effort Walt made throughout his life to make cartoons a respectable genre (think that in 1928, only 25% of American theaters screened cartoons).

I already heard and know about the "Looney Tune Lockout" from this same "Animation Guild" website.

Thank you for showing us another part of history! :)

"Best O' Plucky Duck Day"
Buster: "Welcome, toonatics! Today we're presenting three hysterical duck tales."
Plucky: "DON'T USE THAT WORD!"

"Space Jam"
Daffy: "How's this for a new team name: The Ducks!"
Bugs: "Please! What kind of Mickey Mouse organization would name their team "The Ducks" ?"


& one more thing,
in the Disney PC game titled "Disney's Villains' Revenge", when you found
a picture of Doc (from "Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs") on the storybook door,
the 2 doorknobs named In & Out said...

In: "Hey, what's up Doc! ha ha ha ha!"
Out: "Try to remember who we work for."



Now that's what I call a parodying clash of the studio titans!

By the time the movie was released, the Walt Disney Company was responsible for a professional hockey team called the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. The team later became the Anaheim Ducks (in 2006) after the Walt Disney Company sold their rights to handle them in 2005.

And similar to one of the Luckey episodes of Bonkers!.

On this note, I've never really understood the order of the Luckey / Miranda eps of Bonkers, nor why the change. Was one of the series simply a segment in Raw Toonage?

I should also note the two Animaniacs episodes Nighty-Night Toon and The Warners and the Beanstalk include a tribute to Sterling Holloway, a famous voice actor for many Disney productions. If you own the Walt Disney Treasures: Disney Rarities DVD set, you would notice Mr. Holloway has narrated a few one-shot Disney cartoons to give them a storybook feel. Jim Cummings, who can imitate Sterling real well, did the narration in his "Pooh" voice for these two Animaniacs episodes which were parodies of children's stories.
Happy Holidays, everyone!

Don't forget that also both Disney and Warner Bros. has their own cartoon SFX editors. They were responsible for making the SFX we hear in the cartoons.

Disney: Jim McDonald
Warner Bros.: Treg Brown

Ironically around the mid 50's, Disney started to use some of Warner's SFX in their cartoons and animated films. Warner Bros. did the same thing for their 50's and 60's cartoons.
I'm not just a fan of classic golden age animation, I'm also a fan of video games, anime, and modern animation (both 2D and CGI animation).

Most of us remember the 2 memorable scenes from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)" featuring animated superstar rivals!

Donald Duck & Daffy Duck are dueling pianists at the nite club named "The Ink & Paint Club",

& Mickey Mouse & Bugs Bunny do their best to help Eddie Valiant during the big fall in Toontown.
(I think Mickey & Bugs are best friends, not just rivals)


And although the 2 TV shows are not animated,
The WB TV shows "Full House" & "Family Matters" has episodes of the characters' visit to Walt Disney World,
I think it's ironic!


What's also ironic is that the Looney Tunes compilation movies once aired on the Disney Channel!,
& many years later, "Pinky & The Brain", "Batman: The Animated Series" & "Superman: The Animated Series"
once aired on Toon Disney's Jetix block & Disney XD!


Many of us also remember Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck teaming up with the Disney animated friends (& many more cartoon stars)
in the anti-drug TV special "Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue (1990)".
