Recently, this title has been added to the database: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8014644/reference. Looney Tunes was not a tv show that started in 1930 and is still running. Obviously, someone wanted to create a general page for the different short cartoons that have been created from 1930 onwards. I have to say, I'm a bit puzzled as how this got past the staffers...

At least they haven't proceed with adding "individual episodes"... 

There are a lot of problems like that with certain Soviet franchises as there were such things as "kinozhurnal" ("a film journal"), which are basically film serials, but almost all of them were both shown theatrically and televised and many of them transcended to be mainly TV in the later years.

I can imagine it's very hard getting all that information on IMDb in the proper manner. I do know that for American film journals a start has been made some years ago: http://www.imdb.com/find?q=universal%20newsreel&s=tt&exact=true&ref_=fn_al_tt_ex

Not only that, but somebody added a supposed "Tom and Jerry" (1940) television series to the database: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8014590/. That appears to be the revival of a page I had successfully gotten deleted a few years ago (see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/tom_and_jerry_cartoon_is_missing_from_imdb).

Good catch Gromit. I'm sure a staffer will delete both Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry.
