Editorial Reviews

Acme Looniversity is about to let out for summer vacation, and Plucky, Hampton J. Pig, Babs, Buster, Fifi, and Elmyra can't wait. Each of the students has big summer plans, ranging from a cross-country trip to Happy World Land, to the biggest squirt-gun fight ever, getting a Hollywood star's autograph, and a trip to the nature park. Of course, summer vacations never seem to go quite as planned. Everything from annoying family car-ride traditions to escaped convicts, town-wide flooding, snooty stars, and unpredictable wild animals threaten to ruin the students' vacations. The gags, silly songs, parodies of Hollywood stars and pop culture, cartoon violence, and crazy fun never seem to stop in this 80-minute original film. Viewers will gain a whole new perspective on downriver trips, Hollywood talk shows, and the true meaning of "Independence" Day. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

School's out for summer, and it's vacation time for the Tiny Toons gang from Acme Looniversity! Babs and Buster Bunny's vacation starts with a good old fun-in-the-sun squirt-gun fight! Once the flood gates are opened (and all of Acme Acres is under water!), they are swept away on a summer adventure of a lifetime. Plucky joins Hampton J. Pig and family for a road trip to none other than Happy World Land - the greatest theme park this side of the globe! From the endless annoyances of Hampton's family to escaped convict hitchhikers, Plucky is in for one long and very hot summer! Elmyra is in wild animal bliss as she visits a drive-through nature park. Will the animals survive her unique brand of affection?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, Terrible TV Quality August 22, 2012
By Ry Guy
First off, I wanna say if I were just rating this movie alone it would be five stars. I grew up watching it as a kid and loved it. Especially Plucky's story line. It is pure classic 90's silver animation.

However, who else noticed how lazy they were with this DVD? It looks like a thirteen-year-old burnt it on his laptop. The menus are obviously templates and the themes have nothing to do with 'Tiny Toons' or Warner Bros. at all (except for the main menu). I expected the movie quality to be bad since it was converted from tape just like the episodes. But damn, it looks worse than it did on VHS. Hopefully no one who buys this will be watching it on a big screen. Your eyes may bleed.

Regardless, I'm glad it's out on DVD. I just wish they would have spent a little more time cleaning it up. 90's TV animation gets no respect in regards to video quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars About time! June 11, 2012
This was one of the best direct-to-video releases I can remember...however, that was 21 years ago. Lots of the jokes (Roseanne Barr singing the national anthem comes to mind) aren't going to register with new, younger viewers. Most of the movie should hold up well enough, though, that's it's worth purchasing. The DVD cover, however, is rather unfortunate. It's not an accurate portrayal of anything that happens in the film plus it would make the movie appear more juvenile than it actually is (there are several instances of more adult humor in this movie, although they should sail right over most younger kids' heads). But it's a very funny movie with very good animation made when a very good early 1990s animated franchise was doing some of its best work.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's GRAINY! August 25, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a 5 star movie, don't get me wrong! My kids (12, 1 and 1) LOVE IT! I used to watch this as a kid and I love it too. However, I got this in the mail today, put it on and it looks AWFUL! It is not even a bit remastered, the Tiny Toons series looks better than this! Very grainy and the colors are dull! I own A LOT of TV cartoons and this is by far the worst quality DVD I own! I watched this on a 63" LCD, 42" plasma and a 32" LCD TV - the movie was equally bad on all 3 screens. I am so disappointed!!! The copy on YouTube looks similar, and it's free. I should have waited for it to drop in price, I am really upset I spent $13 on this! Great movie, but not worth the price the way it looks. The DVD deserves one star, the movie 5... I gave it 3.


UPDATING to add that I have decided to return this. Only adults handle disks at our house (very carefully may I add) and somehow this disk has started to freeze. It froze about 24 minutes into the movie and I had to reset the player. Wanted to skip to where we left off and I realized there are no Chapter Selections on the main menu. In fact, I had to play the film and "fast forward" (yes, on a DVD!!!) to the part we left off on. I have no doubts this is a direct-from-VHS transfer!

I plan on purchasing this again, either when a) it is rereleased remastered OR b) the price drops below $5. No way is this worth more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! January 21, 2005
By Anita
Format:VHS Tape
I have been a rabid Tiny Toons fan ever since it aired on TV in the early 90s, I was about 7. Me and my older brother would watch it everyday. Then came the How I spent my Vacation(I could have sworn it was called How I spent my SUMMER vacation, oh well), me and my brother were rolling on the floor dying of laughter! We loved the entire movie and I think we even recorded it or had our mom rent it from like Blockbuster everytime she went there, cause I remember watching it millions of times! I just recently bought it online(unfortunately a VHS copy cause for some reason I don't know why this isn't on DVD yet and it should have been on DVD years ago!) and can't wait for it to come in so I can show my younger sisters, who missed out on this classic jem! If you haven't seen Tiny Toons before or this movie I HIGHLY recommend it! Classic scenes are: the entire scene of Plucky with Hamtons family going on a trip to Happy world land with a psycho(some parents said he was too scary for kids, nonsense! Yeah the guy was rather freaky but the scenes with him were too funny to be too scary! I was never scared of him and I was a little kid!) who hitch-hiked with them, Buster and Babs water fight and trip down the river with possums trying to eat them, and the ending! Do yourself a favor and just buy a copy even if you haven't seen it. You won't be disappointed! Just check out the ending song:

Buster: "We're sad, we're confessing, that school is back in session. *takes out his water pistol* I sure learned my lesson."

Babs shuts Buster in his locker.

Babs: "I actually had fun."

Plucky: "I'm filled with elation, I'm back from that vacation!"

Shirley: "For my next incarnation...I'm coming as a nun!

4.0 out of 5 stars A 90's Animated Classic, Finally on DVD! August 24, 2012
"Tiny Toon Adventures" is one of those series that EVERYONE watched growing up in the 1990's. Its characters and humor were based on the classic Warner Bros. Looney Tunes shorts from the 1930's-1960's, but it developed a style of humor all its own, and eventually paved the way for another landmark series, "Animaniacs".

Produced by legendary film director Steven Spielberg and helmed by some of the best animators, musicians and voice actors ever (both in the U.S. and overseas), "Tiny Toons" took the cliche of turning classic cartoon characters into younger versions of themselves and turned it on its ear. Rather than simply kiddie-fying the Looney Tunes, "Tiny Toons" featured a cast of wacky characters who were their own entities. They were admirers and students rather than younger versions or direct offspring of Bugs Bunny and friends.

Arguably, this movie was the Tiny Toons' finest hour, showcasing their adventures on summer vacation away from their Looney professors at Acme Looniversity. Plucky Duck and Hamton Pig endure a road-trip from Hell with Hamton's family. Animal-torturing Elmyra goes to a drive-through safari zoo in search of a "new kitty", skinning a leopard and torturing a lion, panther and jaguar in the process. Fifi the skunk gets a date with movie star "Johnny Pew" and finds out he's a jerk. Shirley the Loon decides to finally accept Fowlmouth the rooster's invitation to a date, and it's a hilarious disaster. Buster and Babs Bunny get into a squirt gun fight that ends in Babs opening a floodgate and sweeping them down a river into a world full of hillbilly possums and hungry alligators.

All of these subplots manage to intertwine, all backed by a full musical orchestra, fluid animation produced in both the U.S. and Japan.

Maybe WB is testing the waters with this release?
Just bought a copy. WB is not being very funny with the quality of DVD they released. They could've done MUCH better than this with a movie 30 years older! The picture is grainy, it looks worse than VHS. Hard to believe it took them this long to release this and it looks like they burned the copy... Read more
