Warner Bros.-Seven Arts was formed in 1967, when Seven Arts Productions acquired Jack Warner's controlling interest in Warner Bros. for $32 million and merged with it. The deal also included Warner Bros. Records, Reprise Records and the B&W Looney Tunes library (plus the B&W non-Harman and Ising Merrie Melodies). Later that same year, Warner Bros.-Seven Arts purchased Atlantic Records. It became defunct in 1970.
