How come the effects animators and film editor (y'know, Harry Love, Ace Gamer, Treg Brown) were only credited sporadically in Warner Bros. cartoons? Just noticed that not all WB cartoons have them credited for some reason.

The "film editor" credit didn't appear until 1956's Tugboat Granny.

How come Warner cartoons did not have a sound system credit? All the other studios showed the RCA or Western Electric sound recording credit.

I do know that Warners used RCA for their live-action films during the time (plus on The Bugs Bunny Show).

I think they used the "effects animation" credit when the film had moving objects with 3d effects that need to look more "natural" (as opposed to cartoony).
