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:

What do you mean, "All Fresh Prince, All the Time"? It's 50 percent "Fresh Prince", 50 percent "Rosanne". ;)

Anyway, thanks for posting from a time when Nick was a little more adventurous.

I immediately knew which opening you meant, despite not having seen it in 15 years or so! Every weeknight at 730 EST, as I remember. They only had the cartoons that no one else wanted--those awful 60s ones like "Merlin the Magic Mouse" and "Bunny and Claude." But also the other ones no one wanted--the crazy B&W 1930s ones. When CN finally canceled "Black & White At Night," I knew that it was time for me to cancel cable.

OMG! It took me an hour to find that intro, and it was running through my head before I went to sleep! I adored that intro from Nick @ Nite's Lonney Tunes! Kudos!
