Merrie Melodies are one-two minute music videos that air in the middle of almost every The Looney Tunes Show episode in Season 1. In Season 2, they appear at the end to replace the CGI Shorts. The songs are available on iTunes for 99¢. Since You Like / I Like, however, new songs aren't being released the day after the episode with album artwork as a single. Instead, they will be released in a giant collection once the season ends with all the other songs in the season.
They are based off the original series 1931-1969 and 1988.
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 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.
