At this point, the show, previously known fully as "The Cat & Birdy Warneroonie Pinky Brainy Big Cartoonie Show", was promoted to being shown on weekday afternoons and, for whatever reason, was also retitled "The Cat & Bunny Warneroonie Super Looney Big Cartoonie Show", which I never understood because Sylvester and Bugs have clearly never been teamed up (unless you count the non-canonical Bugs Bunny newspaper comic strip). In this form, the show featured only segments from "Tiny Toon Adventures" and "Animaniacs", plus "Looney Tunes" shorts on weekdays, and was bookended by wrap-around "hosting" segments starring two kids named Karen & Kirby (that's them you see right at the start), voiced respectively by Cheryl Chase and Richard Horvitz. Worth noting is that the Kids' WB! press guide for this season claimed that the show was also featuring "Pinky and the Brain" segments (both with and without Elmyra), but aside from their cameo in this intro and the appearance of "Cheese Roll Call" in one episode that I recorded, I have no recollection of the mice actually appearing on the show in this season. The show was taken off the following year, and as a result, "Looney Tunes", "Tiny Toons", and "Animaniacs" disappeared from Kids' WB! altogether. Oh, and it should also be noted that this theme song is different from those used in the first season because this one has a few extra lyrics and is not being sung by the Warner siblings. And there's the obvious fact that some of the "Animaniacs" animation used in the first season's intro is replaced by some animation from "Tiny Toons" (i.e. it's now Plucky instead of the Goodfeathers who gets knocked away by the ball).
