This chapter discusses Warner Bros.' Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, which seemed almost invariably to stake out a very different territory from that of the Disney works. The Warner Bros. cartoons play far more freely at the fringes of the real and explore many of the potentials of a form wherein nearly everything in the animated world comes from the same stuff. The works of Chuck Jones, the most lauded director of the animation unit, show a repeated concern with narratizing space, with shifting the terms of interrogation from animation style to what is termed style-in-action.

Keywords:   Warner Bros., Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, animated world, Chuck Jones, narratizing space, style-in-action
