In addition, Tahslin's name occasionally appeared in different permutations on the title-cards to his black-and-white LT's; like "Tish-Tash" and "Frank Tash", to name just two...

I'd rather answer the original question.

I suspect J.L. is correct. Saturday morning network cartoon shows featured the post-1948 Warners, meaning, of course, no Tashlin. The only place you'd see his cartoons is in the AAP packages, and they contained Blue Ribbons with no credits. And, as the '70s rolled around, stations didn't run black and whites, meaning some of Tashlin's cartoons didn't air.

Tashlin also didn't really have a long tenure at Warners to begin with.

CN plays a lot of pre-48 cartoons. I guess it's just another example of CN's bad habbit of ignoring good cartoons that don't star Bugs Bunny.

J Lee wrote:If you mean his name, Tashlin had a lot of his color cartoons BRed, while his later ones that avoided that fate never carried his name to begin with, because they were released after he left Warner's for the final time (over half of his first directorial term at WB also were in the B&W Looney Tunes, which over the years tended to be less frequently shown than their color counterparts. And even after computer colorization, the pre-1938 LTs still look "weird" to people executing the normal Warners stylings and characters from the studio's heyday, so many of Frank's shorts from that period were in light rotation, if they were played at all).


Add to that the Tashlin cartoons that are wartime-related or otherwise un-PC (i.e. The Major Lied Till Dawn).

Tex Avery and Bob Clampett directed enough color cartoons to not really be affected by that, or some of the other points J Lee mentioned.

OK, LB. I wasn't sure when you watched these as a kid. I saw them in the '60s so there was no "Cartoon Network" (and I'm in Canada, anyway). If you didn't see them in the era before cable TV, J.L. has a pretty good answer.
