DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, sometimes known as DFE, was an American production company, founded in 1963 and dissolved in 1981. It was best known for making cartoons such as The Pink Panther.

From 1964 to 1967, DFE produced cartoons for the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series after Warner Bros. had closed down its animation studio. Due to strict budgets and constrictions, the studio was only allowed to use certain characters such as Daffy Duck or Speedy Gonzales.

This era of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies is most known for the stylized opening and endings (reused from Chuck Jones' Now Hear This, without the sound effects) with a reinterpretation of the famous "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" provided by William Lava.
