Steven Spielberg Presents Tiny Toon Adventures: Season 1, Volume 2
A new generation of toonsters searches for fun, adventure and mischief in the "anything can happen because it's animation" land of Acme Acres.
The Emmy Award-winning Tiny Toon Adventures is cartoon fun that's perfect for the entire family. Acme Looniversity students Buster and Babs Bunny (no relation), Plucky Duck, Hamton Pig, and all their crazy friends are hard at work learning the ins and outs of animation, how to perform the perfect wild take (think bugging-out eyes), and all-around general cartoon clowning under the tutelage of Looney Tunes greats like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Foghorn Leghorn in this second volume of first season Tiny Toon Adventures. The compilation begins with Plucky in big trouble when his animation final rolls around and he hasn't attended a single class. The magic pen provides a primer on how animation works (or how it worked in the 1990s) and then Elmyra, Hamton, Dizzy Devil, Montana Max, Plucky, and others present their own quirky animated films. Other episodes find the Tiny Toon gang looking for part-time jobs, searching for the perfect date, cheating on exams, moving pianos, saving whales from the cosmetic industry, and tackling pollution problems. No matter what the business of the day, the Tiny Toon gang can be counted upon for fun, laughter, and plenty of silliness. The "Fairy Tales for the '90s" offers a whole new spin on some classic fairy tales with stories like "Bunnochio" and "Bear Necessities," and adults will especially appreciate parodies like "Robin Hare" and the Shakespearian "To Babs or Not to Babs," the Twilight Zone-inspired "The Return to the Acme Acres Zone," superhero "Duck Dodgers Jr." (of the 24th and a half century), and the western spoof "High Toon."
