Background

The WB was Warner Bros. and Tribune Broadcasting's attempt at a major network. Like UPN, it was formed from six independent stations owned by Tribune Broadcasting. The WB ceased operations in 2006 along with Viacom's network, UPN (later owned by CBS Corporation), and both networks merged to form The CW.

1st ID (January 11, 1995-1998)

Logo: In a night sky, we see a stage with a variety of light bulbs and the sign which has the letters "WB" from the movie logo's shield with "THE" in blue, Michigan J. Frog, who wears a black top hat and cane, rises up as he sings "The WB!", which causes the letters to light up to the top.

FX/SFX: A hybrid of 2D and live-action. Michigan J. Frog in this ID was animated by Chuck Jones.

Music/Sounds: At the beginning of the ID, we hear the sound of an orchestra warming up accompanied by the conductor clicks his baton four times and a ding; with the people chatting and crickets chirping. Michigan J. Frog (voiced by Jeff McCarthy) singing "The WB!" in a long, baritone manner as the letters light up. After Michigan's song, we also hear the sound of the people cheering.

Availability: Rare. Seen on their first broadcasts.
