1955 became the year where the opening themes of both Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were arranged by Milt Franklin. However, some cartoons still contained to use the older themes even after the first short with a new theme was created. Meaning that after Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes shorts from the first half were done being used mixing the older and newer Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theme songs, the 1946-1955 Looney Tunes opening and end theme, the 1945-1955 Merrie Melodies opening theme, and the 1941-1955 Merrie Melodies closing theme were all permanently replaced with the 1955-1964 Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies themes. The rings changed from red rings with blue background to green rings with red background, however, some cartoons from the 1955-1956 season continued to use the red rings and blue background at the end only.
