He imitated Bud Abbott in one Warner short casting Abbott and Costello as alley cats Babbit and Catstello ("A Tale of Two Kitties") and two Warner shorts casting them as mice ("A Tale of Two Mice" and "The Mouse-Merized Cat"). Pierce also voiced Tom Dover in "The Dover Boys", the "tall, thin" character in "Wackiki Wabbit", and the French chef Louis in "French Rarebit". In addition, in a few shorts containing Jones' Hubie and Bertie characters, Pierce voiced Bertie, and Maltese played Hubie. Thereafter they were voiced by the principal voice actor, Mel Blanc, and Stan Freberg, who had also voiced secondary "Looney Tunes"/"Merrie Melodies" duos such as the Goofy Gophers and Spike the Bulldog and Chester the Terrier.
In 1941, Maltese was hired by Leon Schlesinger Productions, which three years later became Warner Bros. Cartoons, Inc. (Maltese had actually appeared on camera in the 1940 Porky Pig cartoon "You Ought to Be in Pictures" as a live-action guard at the Warner Bros. entrance gate, who winds up chasing the animated Porky around the Warners lot). The first cartoon he wrote for Warners was "The Haunted Mouse" (1941) by Tex Avery (credited as Fred Avery). He first worked mainly for Friz Freleng until 1948, but after that he worked mostly for Chuck Jones, contributing stories to other directors at times, including Robert McKimson. He and Jones collaborated on classic cartoons like the Academy Award-winning "For Scent-imental Reasons" (1949), featuring the character Pepé Le Pew, and the animated public health documentary, "So Much for So Little" (1949) which won that same year for "Best Documentary Short Subject." Maltese was also the voice of the Lou Costello-esque character in "Wackiki Wabbit" (1943).
