Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies filmography (1929–1939)
Bosko, the Talk-Ink Kid
is a live-action/animated short film starring a character named Bosko. The film was produced in May 1929, directed by Hugh Harman
and Rudolf Ising
, and shown by the two to various distributors. In the film, a cartoonist (portrayed in live action by Rudolf Ising) draws Bosko, who comes to life. Bosko speaks, sings, dances and plays the piano before the cartoonist sucks him into his ink pen and pours him back into the inkwell. Bosko pops out of the bottle and promises to return. The film is in the public domain.

are directed by Hugh Harman. The cartoons star Bosko
, and other characters. All the cartoons are scored by Frank Marsales
. All cartoons are in the public domain.
This year marks the beginning of production of color WB
cartoons. For this year, most would still be in black and white up until Rhythm in the Bow
. All cartoons are under copyright.
All Merrie Melodies
cartoons are in 2-strip Technicolor until the end of the year, when the series adopts 3-strip Technicolor
as its new color process, starting with Flowers for Madame
