In 1975, DePatie-Freleng produced an animated Christmas special on NBC called The Tiny Tree.

This special was sponsored by the original AT&T. Despite corporate changes involving the company, AT&T continued to own the special up until its just-approved purchase of Time Warner in 2018.

Time Warner is the parent of Warner Bros., and because of this merger, WB Animation will inherit the rights to The Tiny Tree.

While this may seem trivial, this could allow the special to be seen in an official capacity for the first time in years, perhaps being uploaded to Boomerang and also released via the Warner Archive.
