Kartunes was a series of 12 theatrical shorts subjects from 1951 to 1953. The series was produced by Famous Studios for Paramount Pictures. It succeeded the Screen Songs series because Paramount Pictures lost the rights to the series' name and the term "Bouncing Ball" couldn't be used any more. Even though the series ended in 1953, Famous produced one more cartoon called Candy Cabaret, which was part of the Noveltoons series.
The opening theme of each cartoon was Sing a Song of Six Pence.
