Not 100% sure on that one. It sorta sounds like "Keep Cool, Fool", but it's probably something else

Does anyone know what the theme used in the openings to Salt Water Tabby (1947), and Kitty Foiled (1948) is called?

"Here's to the Girls" from MGM's Ziegfeld Follies (1945).

I couldn't find anywhere to listen to it, unfortunately. It seemed to be first used in a live action short from 1937 called "Little Pioneer" but other than that, it was pretty much used exclusively in Looney Tunes shorts.

Greetings,
I've been creating a database of the popular songs used in these shorts for reference.

Does anyone know the name of these tunes?:
Porky's Building (scene where camel mixes cement)
Robin Hood Makes Good (opening cue, scene where squirrels dress up little squirrel as villain)
Dog Gone Modern (opening scene)
A Day At The Zoo (monkey cage, pink elephants)
I'm A Big Shot Now (opening scene)
Acrobatty Bunny (scene with elephant)
Uncle Tom's Bungalow (chase scene)

I would greatly appreciate any leads.

Final batch of mystery tracks (for now at least):
-music during the badminton scene in "Bad Ol' Putty Tat" (found: "Freddy the Freshman")
-music that plays when Bugs and Gildersneeze are in a horse costume in "Hare Conditioned" (found: "The Old Gray Mare (Ain't What She Used to Be")
-slow music in "Kitty Kornered" when Sylvester (?) and the other cats dress up as martians and segues into scene with Porky in bed (found: "Angel in Disguise")
-cue in "The Fair-Haired Hare" when we see the finished house (found: "Home! Sweet Home!")
-slow dance music in "You Ought to Be in Pictures" when Porky stumbles on the set, also plays in "Hollywood Steps Out" before the Cary Grant scene (found: "Where Was I?")
-boogie-woogie music in "The Big Snooze" after Bugs sings "The Rabbits Are Coming"
-opening cue in "The Heckling Hare" when we first see the hunting dog

Wait- that was "A Hunting We Will Go"? Funny that I didn't recognize it there, usually I recognize that one right off the bat.

Two I've been wondering about:

-The piece that plays after the title card in "Satan's Waitin" (when Sylvester is chasing Tweety). It sounds like either a classical music piece or a silent film era piece (a la J.S. Zamecnik). It was heard in other WB cartoons too.

-The music that plays during the typewriter gag in "Lights Fantastic". It's also the title card for "Wise Quacks". It sounds like a beginner piano tune but I can't place its name.

More tunes I'm wondering about:
A Pest in the House: chase music when Elmer and Daffy run into the basement, tune that plays whenever the hotel patron is asleep

Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid: title card (I could be wrong, but I think this plays over the title card of "Dog Pounded" as well)

Frigid Hare: title card

Porky in Wackyland: brief march when the Dodo appears in his boat, classical (?) piece when the Dodo draws a door (both of these might be Stalling originals, but I'm not going to rule out the possibility that either one of them is a preexisting melody)

The Great Piggy Bank Robbery: music when Daffy is reading through the Dick Tracy comic

The Up-Standing Sitter: title card

You Were Never Duckier: track when Henery arrives at the poultry show and leaves with Daffy
"With all respect to the great mousetrap."- Popeye, "The Spinach Overture" (1935)

The chase song is "Make it Snappy" by Floyd J. St. Clair. The sleeping music is the Irish song "Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral".

Quote:

I've been wondering what the song for "Boid" is as well. But the "Dog Pounded" card is "Piano, Bass, and Drums" by Peter De Rose and Charles Tobias, also heard in the WB musical comedy "About Face".

Quote:
Frigid Hare: title card
"Winter" by Albert Gumble.

Quote:
Porky in Wackyland: brief march when the Dodo appears in his boat, classical (?) piece when the Dodo draws a door (both of these might be Stalling originals, but I'm not going to rule out the possibility that either one of them is a preexisting melody)
I think those are Stalling originals but I'm not 100% sure.

Quote:
The Great Piggy Bank Robbery: music when Daffy is reading through the Dick Tracy comic
"I Go For You" by M.K. Jerome. Also heard in "The Grey Hounded Hare" and "A Gruesome Twosome".

Quote:
The Up-Standing Sitter: title card
"Pretty Baby" by Egbert Van Alstyne.

Quote:
You Were Never Duckier: track when Henery arrives at the poultry show and leaves with Daffy
"When the Circus Comes to Town" by Henry Tobias.

BTW: Just a helpful tip: A lot of these have already been identified if you search for the individual cartoons on imdb (see the soundtrack section).
