Good for kids and cartoon lovers.
15 March 2001 | by (Pleasant Prairie, WI) – See all my reviews

C'mon, people, this show wasn't THAT bad. I know it got a little preachy, had a lightweight premise and Kennedy cartoons (established by shuffling feet, cigar chewing mouths, and excessive stretching/bouncing), but past all that, "Tiny Toon Adventures" is a good cartoon. I watched it from it's premiere in 1990 until they stopped it in 1992. "Tiny Toons" was an attempt to return to making more respectable cartoons for young 'uns, and I congratulate Steven Spielberg and Warner Brothers on that.

About the characters: The guys in this cartoon fare nicely. Buster Bunny is neutral; not great, but not aggravating, either. There's nothing wrong with him. Plucky Duck is the funny man, and his straight man Hamton is always his friend/target (as in Batduck, where Hammy became Decoy, the Pig Hostage). Montana Max was definitely one of the better characters/stronger villains. Plus, Dizzy Devil probably got Taz some more recognition, too.

As for the females, well...most of them need a little work. Babs Bunny kinda sorta got annoying. She doesn't seem to have much personality (more than Lola Bunny of Space Jam, I'll give her that), just a whirlwind of impressions and voices. Sweetie Bird is no Tweety, actually, she's quite loud and tough! Shirley the Loon is a character with a valley girl voice and attitude, but she doesn't really seem to have a Looney Tune counterpart. Is she Foghorn Leghorn's, or maybe Miss Prissy's? Political correctness, I tell 'ya. Elmyra? *shudder* ...Let's just say that SOME Elmyra is okay, too much Elmyra is bad. That leaves me to believe Fifi La Fume is probably the best leading female character (still, she's no Pepe Le Pew, my ultimate fave Looney Tune). Take her away from the 'Pepe chase' scenario (trust me, they show Pepe just can't be duplicated) and put her in a 'Babs, Shirley 'n me' episode and she's getting my vote as 'Best Female Tiny Toon'. (good example: The Amazing Three)

Overall, I say give it a shot. You might just like it. After all these years, "Tiny Toons" still has a large fanbase. And hey, this cartoon more than likely needed to get the success it's had, otherwise we'd probably never have gotten other shows like "Animaniacs" and the like.

In-joke: (also listed as a gag credit) On the "Tiny Toons Music Television" tape they picture on this page, they have Elmyra lead in the 'Name Game' and all the Tiny Toons' names get rhymed except Plucky. (Don't ask why!)
