Merrie Melodies is a series of short segments found in The Looney Tunes Show. They also occasionally are shown on Boomerang as interstitial shorts since the network's 2015 rebrand, even when The Looney Tunes Show itself is not airing as part of the network's line-up.
These shorts are music videos that are two minutes long (with the exception of Daffy Duck the Wizard, which runs for twice as long) showcasing classic Looney Tunes characters singing brand new original songs. In The Looney Tunes Show, they appeared midway through most of the episodes in Season 1 and at the end of most episodes in Season 2 in place of the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote shorts.
According to the show's debuting press release, it states The series also features Merrie Melodies — animated music videos of original songs spotlighting everyone from Elmer Fudd to Pepe Le Pew.
All of the title cards of each song has been the same with the song name in white in the middle of a big green circle and other green circles bordering the big green circle in the middle, with the only exception being Daffy Duck the Wizard, which had a very special title card.
The first episode with a Merrie Melody, but not a CGI short was the first episode, Best Friends. The longest streak of Merrie Melodies lasted four episodes in a row, from Best Friends to The Fish and Visitors. The longest streak without having a Merrie Melody were three episodes from Devil Dog to Eligible Bachelors.
While Merrie Melodies have been in only seven episodes in season two, thus far, despite the removal of the Road Runner and Coyote CGI shorts, more episodes haven't had them than episode that had them. However, Gribbler's Quest featured two Merrie Melodies in one episode for the first time in season two.
