The opening credits begins with a image depicting of Fishing Boy laying down behind the tree, fishing at the lake, while sleeping and dreaming, with the title stating "Dora Wilson Presents" and "Dreamtoons" appearing on the screen, before fades to another card depicting whatever character is featuring in the cartoon. Then it fades to a list of people who worked on the cartoon and then the title of the cartoon before the short starts. At the ending, fades to "The End A Dora Wilson Production" logo, alongside with "A Republic Picture Release" on the bottom.
While most of the Dreamtoons main characters are animals, Goldy Locks, Billy Bill, Crazy Clown, Red Riding Hood, Little Amanda, April, May and June, the cast from the Saint Augustins series, Baxter Pryce, the Droidlings and Bluehilda are the main human/humanoid characters in the series.

While the 1930s cartoons featuring Bosko and Foxy are owned by WarnerMedia through Warner Bros., the 1950s-present Bosko and Foxy cartoons are owned by Comcast through DreamWorks Studios.
Harman and Ising preferred the new cartoons by DreamWorks over the old ones they've made back in the 1930s.
Warner Bros. also had DreamWorks' permission to use its versions of Bosko and Foxy for Tiny Toon Adventures (but redesigning them in a style similar to their 1930s cartoons) for the show's episodes Fields of Honey and Two-Tone Town.
