Babbit and CatstelloMerrie Melodies[1]Babbit and Catstello are Looney Tunes based on the comedic duo Abbott and Costello.

In their first three cartoons, the "Babbit" character was voiced by Tedd Pierce, and Mel Blanc performed "Catstello". Later, Babbit is voiced by Billy West, and Joe Alaskey performs Catstello.
