TINY TOONS

“We’re tiny, we’re toony. We’re all a lil’ loony!”

Steven Spielberg presents Tiny Toon Adventures, an animated TV series it began production as a result of Warner Bros. reinstating its animation studio in 1989 after a decade of dormancy. During the 1980s, the new studio only worked on revivals of the classic characters; meaning that Tiny Toon Adventures was the first of many original animated series from the studio.

Tiny Toon Adventures was a cartoon set in the fictional town of Acme Acres, where most of the Tiny Toons and Looney Tunes characters live. The characters attended Acme Looniversity, a school whose faculty primarily consists of the mainstays of the classic Warner Bros. cartoons, such as Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Sylvester Wile E. Coyote and Elmer.

In the series, the university was founded to teach cartoon characters how to become funny. The school is not featured in every episode as not all of its storylines are centered around the school.

Like the Looney Tunes the series was derived from cartoon violence (anvils falling on someone, liberal use of explosives) and slapstick. The series parodied and referenced the current events of the early 1990s and Hollywood culture. Occasionally, episodes would delve into veiled ethical and morality stories of ecology, self-esteem and crime.

 

The two main characters are both rabbits: Buster Bunny (a blue male rabbit) and Babs Bunny (a pink female rabbit).

Other major characters in the cast are generally non-human as well, these include:

  • Plucky Duck (a green male duck)
  • Hampton J. Pig (a pink male pig)
  • Fifi La Fume (a purple-and-white female skunk)
  • Shirley the Loon (a white female loon)
  • Dizzy Devil (a purple Tasmanian devil)
  • Furrball (a blue cat)
  • Calamity Coyote (a bluish-gray coyote)
  • Gogo Dodo (a dodo)
