The Big Cartoonie Show was a compilation of shorts of many Warner Bros. animated programs aired on The WB as part of its Kids' WB programming block, including Looney Tunes, Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, and The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries. Originally, for the first four episodes, the show was called The Cat&Birdy Warneroonie PinkyBrainy Big Cartoonie Show, and it was an hour and a half in length and featured shorts from all the aforementioned shows.

After the first four episodes, the show was cut down to a half hour, and it only showed Animanaics and Pinky, Elmyra, and the Brain episodes. However, the remaining episodes of Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain were shown through The Big Cartoonie Show, as the show had been canceled after only six episodes.

In its second season, it was renamed to The Cat&Bunny Warneroonie SuperLooney Big Cartoonie Show and featured shorts from Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs. Around November, it was moved to weekday afternoons, bringing back the Looney Tunes shorts.

The show ended on August 31, 2000, and marked the end of the Kids' WB! run of the aforementioned shows.
