Potential Explanations

The most common explanation for this Mandela Effect is that the show was named Looney Tunes as a direct parody of another Disney show, Silly Symphonies and Merry Melodies. [1] Furthermore, the term "toon" used to describe a cartoon was not popularized until the 1980's, years after Looney Tunes was released. [2]
