Warner Bros. Animation is a recent incarnation of the animation studio that produced the classic Looney Tunes. Founded in 1980, it creates cartoons mainly for television, and their work not only includes new shows for the Looney Tunes characters (Duck Dodgers, The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries) but also animation featuring the DC Comics characters and Hanna-Barbera properties (since the latter company was bought by Warner's).
Prior to the establishment of Warner Bros. Animation, animated shows by Warner Bros. were distributed instead by WB's own television distribution company Warner Bros. Television.
For years the logo for the company was a modern-design Bugs Bunny in a suit and tie, munching on a carrot and leaning on the Warner Bros. shield with one hand, with a sky background. This logo was also used for live-action films coming from Warner Bros. Family Entertainment.
In November 2008, Warner's created a new logo to debut with Batman: The Brave and the Bold. The new logo features a much more early-1940s style Bugs, again eating a carrot but this time without the suit and tie, leaning on the shield with his back, with a red background. This logo was retired in 2015.
In 2015, a new logo was introduced, using a red WB shield as seen in Looney Tunes classic cartoons with the "Animation" text at the bottom of the shield.
Its new theatrical counterpart is Warner Animation Group.
