(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: Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck. Life & another fact is, Disney & Warner Bros. characters both introduced Snow White & Bugs Bunny. Disney & Warner Bros. cartoon characters 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! Disney, Warner Bros. & 20th Century Fox (like characters introduced Mickey Mouse, Looney Tunes & The Simpsons including Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck & Simpsons family). The original cinematic classic trademark Disney, Warner Bros. & 20th Century Fox the respectively three well known characters to life: Snow White, Bugs Bunny & Marilyn Monroe. Bob Givens, Charles Thorson, Harry Donenfeld and Steve Jobs the companies of The Walt Disney Company and Time Warner the cartoons, computer-animation and comics characters including Snow White, Toy Story, Bugs Bunny, Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones, Cartoon Network, Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and Marvel superheroes. Like Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi, Nintendo vs. Sega (Mario vs. Sonic), DC Comics vs. Marvel Comics (Superman and Batman vs. Spider-Man and Marvel characters) & Star Wars vs. Star Trek (Darth Vader vs. Star Trek characters).

[ s u b j e c t ]


Walt Disney: blankety blank


WB: blankety blank

The owners of Warner Bros. (Time Warner) actually acquired Hanna-Barbera Productions as part of their purchase of Turner Broadcasting.
Reply by speedy fast on: June 24, 2013, 03:27:59 pm.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.
Reply by NicKramer on: June 24, 2013, 03:57:05 pm.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.
Reply by Mister Bighead on: June 26, 2013, 07:37:10 am.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 [sniffles] 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.
Reply by Woody Woodpecker on: July 03, 2013, 07:29:02 pm.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.


1941 also saw the little-known "Looney Tune Lockout" From The Animation 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).
Reply by tonyboy85 on: July 05, 2013, 02:09:13 am.

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!

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.
Reply by tonyboy85 on: July 22, 2013, 11:02:58 am.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, Warner Bros. TV shows including "Pinky & The Brain", "Wonder Woman", "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)".


There is one major thing that three cartoons including Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck.


has in common.


[Perplexing Debuts of the Main Stars]
Walt Disney: The Walt Disney Studios has made a statement that "Steamboat Willie" was


the official 1st debut cartoon of Mickey Mouse, but Mickey Mouse's real 1st debut was in


"Plane Crazy", because it was the 1st Mickey Mouse cartoon ever produced.
WB: The ancestors of Bugs Bunny have been making their debuts for 3 years:


"Porky's Hare Hunt" 4/30/1938


"Prest-o Change-o" 3/25/1939


"Hare-um Scare-um" 8/12/1939


"Elmer's Candid Camera" 3/2/1940.


But the 1st debut of the real Bugs Bunny was in "A Wild Hare (7/27/1940)"



& here are the words that the WB rabbits & ducks are saying...



"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...


Robert Crumb compares the Disney cartoons with the WB & Max Fleischer cartoons.
Robert Crumb:


"The short Disney cartoons are not as creative as either Warner Brothers or Max Fleischer, in my opinion.


Max Fleischer of the early ’30s is my favorite of all the short animated cartoons – Betty Boop, Popeye, and


all the other early stuff they did. Disney’s studio was the first to consciously contrive to be clean and wholesome.


Disney himself was very conservative. And in that process, the cartoons became bland and cute and not that interesting.


There still was some good Donald Duck and all that, but they’re not as sharp as the Warner Brothers or Max Fleischer cartoons,


as far as I’m concerned."


In: "Hey, what's up Doc! ha ha ha ha!"


Out: "Try to remember who we work for."


Melendez at Warners.“Leaving Disney (after the 1941 strike) for Warner Brothers was like a breath of fresh air.


At Disney, we were like a bunch of bankers. It was way too serious.


Old Big Brother was always watching you,” said animator and director Bill Melendez in a 1995 interview.


“At Warners, the whole attitude was different. The people were so full of life and as a group,


we were a feisty funny bunch of guys. We received more money to boot.”


Melendez left Warners in 1948 because after years of perfect attendance, Warners refused to pay him


for the day he took off to attend his father-in-law’s funeral.



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



Cartoon Research: Animation Anecdotes #187


By Jim Korkis


Disney Vs. Warners.In 1990 with the release of “Tiny Toons” television series, producer and filmmaker Steven Spielberg told a reporter:


“As a kid, I remember my dad and I would go see the Disney cartoons which were wonderful.


But we only really fell out of our chairs when we were watching Bugs and Elmer Fudd, or Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.


You could hear the audience laughing hysterically. My father and I laughed shoulder to shoulder. We would die laughing.


Disney made you feel good, but Warner toons cracked you up.”

The famous Dean of Animation, Eddie Selzer, gave newspaper readers in 1952 an idea of how his staff put together a Warner Bros. cartoon.

OK, Eddie was not a dean, or even an artist. He was a company functionary handed the job of overseeing the cartoon studio after the Warners bought it from Leon Schlesinger in 1944. But he provides a pretty good description in this syndicated feature found in the Nashville Tennessean of February 24, 1952.

For good measure, the unidentified writer chatted with someone over at Disney to be able to point out the differences between the two operations.

Several comments by Selzer are interesting. One involves the “skunk” dialogue by Bugs Bunny. The closest I can think of this being said is in the 1953 short Duck! Rabbit! Duck! where Bugs calls Daffy “a dirty skunk.” The dialogue change he refers to later in the story is from the 1949 Bugs cartoon Rebel Rabbit, directed by Bob McKimson. I admit I am stumped about Foghorn Leghorn and the Brooklyn Bridge. And the comments about everyone keeping Bugs’ character were echoed elsewhere in interviews (this is off the top of my head) by both McKimson and Friz Freleng, as Chuck Jones tended to go off on flights of fancy.

These poorly photocopied publicity photos accompanied the story.

Stars That Make You Giggle and Roar Work Long, Tedious Hours Without Receiving a Cent HOLLYWOOD—Some of the most popular stars hero are never paid a red cent. They are, of course, the cartoon characters who have become so famous over the years. These pencil personalities—Snow White, Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Cinderella and Donald Duck—have made movie audiences weep, giggle and roar as genuinely as do the flesh-and-blood stars of stage and screen. Since they are mythical, Hollywood citizens never get to see them except on the screen, but a tour of Warner Bros. cartoon studio brought them to life as surely as if they breathed 16 lungfuls of California air every 60 seconds. There are two representative companies here who produce cartoon movies. They are the Warner company in Hollywood and Walt Disney Productions in Burbank. Each has its own special family of characters and types of productions. Warner Bros. studio makes 30 animated cartoons of seven-minute length each year, and the Disney company, in addition to producing several short comedies, makes full-length features. Both companies use the same basic method of production, and it requires only five words to describe the method: Hard work and good taste. Cartoon production is the exact reverse of actual movie production—the cartoons are fitted to the sound effects. The tour of Warner Bros. cartoon studio, with Edward Selzer, president, acting as guide explained how this is done. Uses Jam Session “I believe in jam sessions,” Selzer said. “If any man in this outfit gets a hot story idea, we let him draw up his idea and show it to us. We all pitch into it and decide where it can be improved and whether, as a whole, it has possibilities.” It is on this story, or "premise" session, that the cartoon depends. The creator introduces his story with simple sketches in continuity. These, with caption text, are arranged on large boards, approximately five by eight feet, called the “story boards.” After the story board has been approved, changed, improved and given the go-ahead, it is turned over to a director who guides each phase of the production. Then the musicians, layout men, background artists and animators are called in to integrate their various assignments. In both the Disney and Warner studios, music and dialogue are recorded first. The animation directors study and analyze and break down the sound elements into the number of film frames that will be required pictorially.

For example, says Selzer, it takes about 48 drawings for Bugs Bunny to say: “You are a skunk.” In this particular statement, now under production in the studio, the artists let Bugs' body remain still, and provided animation in the 48 drawings for his mouth and jaws only. This saves a lot of work. Music and dialogue and sound effects are run over and over on a small sound projector for timing and accent so that the picture and the music and the dialogue come out exactly synchronized. The animator has complete control of his drawings—his actors, as they are in the cartoon medium—at all times, frame by frame. The control is maintained by the cutting department, which prepares the work sheet or chart which shows in terms of film the length of words, the intervals between words, the vowel and consonant sounds, accents, inhalations and out-breathing. These work sheets look something like this: Y—3 frames O—3 frames U—3 frames (Pause here—3 frames) A—7 frames R—6 frames E—4 flames (Pause here—3 frames) A—4 frames (Pause here—3 frames) S—3 frames K—1 frame U—1 frame N—1 frame K—3 frames The many frames for “You Are” are required because Bugs is forming with words with precision and to make the statement sound nastier. The word “skunk” requires less frames because there is little mouth movement in it. Same Pattern Applies The same pattern applies to general sound effects, as, for instance, a clap of thunder or the song of the bird of the fall of a tree. Key animators have assistants who work under and with them in completing any series of drawings. The animators draw the highspots of the action or character gestures. The assistants follow through along the course indicated by the top animators, and then the remaining drawings required for smooth progression are done by men and women called "in-betweeners" because they supply the drawings in between the key action drawings.


The animators work on an illuminated drawing board. This is done so that after one drawing has been completed, a second piece of transparent paper can be placed on top of it and the new drawing varied just enough to make the movement smooth and natural looking. When the drawings have been tested for animation, they are sent to the inking and painting department, where trained girls transfer the drawings to sheets of transparent celluloid and outline the characters with pen and ink in such a skillful manner that they lose none of the charm of the original drawings. Other girls apply the chosen colors of paint to the reverse side of the celluloids so that the inked outlines will show. After the celluloids are finished they are sent to the camera department, where each is placed over the correct background and photographed.

The backgrounds are another phase which requires much painstaking labor and thought. By way of simple exclamation, if Farmer Brown is supposed to chase Foghorn Leghorn across Brooklyn bridge, then the background man simply draws Brooklyn bridge, and slides it under brown and the rooster while the photographer takes animated pictures of them. From here on out it is the same as movie production. The film is previewed and sometimes undergoes further editing. At present the Disney studio, with its hundreds of artists and technicians, is concentrating its creative labors on the elaborate forthcoming production “Peter Pan.” This full-length feature needs no flowery description, since movie fans throughout the country have already recognized Disney’s excellent technique through other features—"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Cinderella," and "Alice in Wonderland." "Peter Pan," adapted from Sir James M. Barrie’s famous fantasy of the boy who never grew up, and his astonishing adventures with the Darling family, moves swiftly in its various excitements and wonders. It will reach the screen in at least 200,000 separate drawings especially painted for the technicolor cameras. This is the amazing factor of animated cartoons. Often the number of drawings a key animator does in a week's time will zip through the theater projector in 10 to 15 seconds. "Peter Pan," when it is released in 1953, will have been in production three years. Selzer likes to discuss his cartoon personalities, and speaks of Bugs Bunny as a veteran of the screen whose character is so well established that it requires many sessions of the story men and directors to see that this character does not go astray. He recalls with a chuckle one cartoon in which Bugs visited Washington to see why the government offered many dollars in bounty for wolves, coyotes and foxes, but only a few cents for rabbits. Bugs was insulted. “Bugs is a guy who is cheerful and resourceful and a menace to the "wittle hunter who hunts wabbits,” he declares, “but you’ll notice he only plays his dirty tricks in self-defense. In this particular story he was originally supposed to kick a Washington cop, and tell him to make a note that Bugs Bunny had been there. He was also to slap the secretary of the interior a couple of times, and throw ink in his face. We changed the cop to a chauffeur, and we toned it down so that he only flipped ink from a pen in the secretary's face.” But there is one trick of Bugs that has become his stock in trade. It occurs when the cop grabs him by the leg, or the hunter pokes a gun in his face, or the bear raises a club over his head, and Bugs, needing time to think, looks up angelically and asks— “What's up, Doc?”
