Ho-hum, I'm tired!
Before Nick at Nite became "All Fresh Prince, All the Time", they actually had a really great line-up of classic TV shows including, for a brief period, Looney Tunes. Looney Tunes On Nick at Nite aired for a couple years in the early 1990s, usually as part of the late night "Nick at Nite Overnite" block. The show began with a sleepy cartoonist (footage from "A Cartoonist's Nightmare") dozing off, followed by a montage of Looney Tunes characters at nighttime. The Nick at Nite LT airings didn't last very long, but Looney Tunes had a very impressive run on the normal Nickelodeon schedule (lasting 11 years!). Here's the Looney Tunes On Nick at Nite opening, preceded by an old school Nick at Nite station ID:
