This is an archived version of the now defunct GAC website, reproduced here by the permission of the webmaster, Jon Cooke. We are currently working on reformatting and transferring all the files. On the main page, any link with an asterix next to it is one that has not been completed yet. Be patient ... we'll get there!

This page serves as a tribute to individual Warner Bros. cartoons from all different eras and featuring all different characters. These synopsis articles represent my personal favorites, seasonal-themed shorts, or just cartoons that are influential, interesting, rare, or important. Having seen nearly every Warner Bros. cartoon and collected the series on tape, for most cartoons I can provide information that you will not find anywhere else. This will be, for the time being, an archive of the cartoons featured on the main page, but I eventually hope to add more cartoons to it that are not featured there. When archived, the cartoons will be placed in alphabetical order by title.. I have given plot summaries and/or interesting details, as well as credits and, where available, some pictures.

I would like to point out a few other pages that have been or will be consulted for certain details:

Dave Mackey's Warner Bros. cartoon filmography

The Unofficial Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Page

The Unofficial Looney Tunes World

Cartoon Research

I would also like to express my sincere appreciation for the work of Jerry Beck and Will Friedwald, whose book Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies has been an extremely helpful reference for dates as well as credits to cartoons with reissued "Blue Ribbon" title cards. Without their research, this page probably would not be here.
