Cartoon Production Information:


The woman or women who actually did the voice for Sniffles is a matter of much debate, and no one seems to be able to firmly fix who did the voice. Marjorie Tarlton and Leone Ledoux are the most probable actresses to do the voice, and probably both did Sniffles. Other women occasionally cited as the voice of Sniffles include Gaye Seabrook, Sylvia Picker and Margaret Talbot. Two women often credited with Sniffles voice- Bernice Hansen and Sara Berner- did not ever do the voice, though Bernice did a similar voice for Little Tommy Cat in The Night Watchman.

In September of 1943, beginning with A Feud There Was, Warner Bros. began re-releasing select color cartoons in their Blue Ribbon program. Typically the Blue Ribbon reissues received new opening sequences with Blue Ribbon title cards and standardized music. Cartoon production credits were also removed. Between ten and fifteen cartoons were released in any given year, with cartoons coming from as far back as 1935. The reissues continued until the close of the studio in the 1960's.

All Blue Ribbon cartoons were released as "Merrie Melodie" cartoons regardless of the original series. The first "Looney Tunes" short to be included in the Blue Ribbon series was The Hep Cat, which was added in 1949. The only current prints of many of these cartoons are the Blue Ribbon releases, although restoration of these cartoons with original elements and titles is always ongoing.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
