Steven Spielberg Presents Tiny Toon Adventures Season 1, Volume 1
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 popularity of animated programming surged in the 1990's and Warner Brothers' answer to films like Disney's The Little Mermaid and the increasingly popular Nickelodeon was Tiny Toons, a series of afternoon cartoons aimed squarely at kids. While drawing inspiration from the Looney Tunes cartoons of the 1930's through 1960's, Tiny Toons featured a cast of all-new animated personalities in modern settings and situations. Buster Bunny and Babs Bunny (no relation) reside in Acme Acres, home of Acme Looniversity where Looney Tunes greats Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Yosemite Sam make the occasional appearance as professors. Buster and Babs, along with their many friends including Plucky Duck and Hamton Pig, are committed to foiling the ever-greedy plans of rich boy Montana Max, struggling to escape the overly-loving clutches of Elmyra Duff, and generally getting themselves into one crazy predicament after another. Silly humor; parodies of well-known movies, television shows, and fairytales; and sly social commentary abound in these 35 adventure tales. Kids ages 5 years and older will love this series and adults will thoroughly enjoy episodes like The Twilight Zone spoof "The Acme Acres Zone" and Star Wars spoof "A Quack in the Quarks" as well as the wacky appearances of Looney Tunes characters from their own childhoods. The bonus "From Looney Tunes to Tiny Toons: A Wacky Evolution" features interviews with executive producer Jean MacCurdy, several story editors, and a host of others involved in Tiny Toons and details the vision for Tiny Toons as well as some background on the original Looney Tunes cartoons and its creators. --Tami Horiuchi

The set contains thirty-five episodes and one bonus feature. In addition to the first episode, you can see such classic Tiny Toon Adventures episodes as "The Buster Bunny Bunch," "Prom-ise Her Anything," "Cinemaniacs," "You Asked for It Part 1," "Citizen Max," "Buster and the Wolverine," "You Asked for It Part 2," "Fields of Honey," and "A Ditch in Time."
The bonus feature is "From Looney Tunes to Tiny Toons - A Wacky Evolution!" This is a documentary that runs for around 20 minutes, and contains interviews with several members of the production crew, as well as Ruth Clampett (the daughter of legendary Warner Brothers animator Bob Clampett). The documentary talks about the origins of the original Looney Tunes shorts to how Tiny Toon Adventures came to be, and decisions that were made regarding the show. It was an interesting documentary, and really gave an insight into what went on behind the scenes for Tiny Toon Adventures.
If you enjoy Tiny Toon Adventures, then this set is worth picking up and adding to your DVD collection.
I wrote this review after watching a copy of this set that my husband and I purchased.
On a good note, the episodes are unedited! The picture quality is still bright and colorful. Though there is still some grainy-blurry spots on them.
Besides the packaging, I'm super happy that it's finally out on DVD. It's been so long since I had last seen Tiny Toons. I don't think I will buy Season 1 Volume 2. Again, the packaging is just awful. I think I'll wait for a complete season 1 boxset and hope for better treatment.
5 stars for the show, 2 stars for the packaging.
This set contains the remaining thirty episodes of the first season of Tiny Toons. This set includes such classic Tiny Toons episodes as "Career Oppor-Toon-ities," "Ask Mr. Popular," "Mr. Popular's Rules of Cool," "Fairy Tales for the '90s," "Tiny Toon Music Television," "Viewer Mail Day," and "You Asked For It Again."
Overall, this is a decent set for what you get. However, I do wish that some kind of bonus feature had been included in this set.

Now, this series is the last of any of Looney Tunes knock off that was decent. This set is a nostalgic no holds barred parody and really a salute to the original Looney Tunes.
A pop culture packed show, which runs for 20 odd minutes a time with cut scenes of modern culture and culture parodies.
The set isn't held with an iron fist by censors like today, which is crazy to believe that this series is around 20 year old.
You get characters which are at a university taught by veteran Looney Tunes characters, starring the talented Charlie Adler (Cow and Chicken, Ahhh real monsters) and we have Buster Bunny and Babs Bunny(no relation) in the starring roles, a parody of Bugs Bunny. Plucky Duck is a parody of Daffy Duck... You get the idea The show goes into university days of these characters.
The show is fun and surprisingly not dated. The jokes still hold water today, mainly because they're recycling the classic Looney Tunes ways, but the set is still so much fun to see these cartoons again.
The set contains 4 discs and 1 is double sided (I hate double sided discs) with a nice box styled box and easy to navigate menu's. With a Play All option and episode selection and language selection (ask if you want to know specifics for that)
This set is the start, from the pilot, to the first half and I'd say the better half of Tiny Toons. But don't let that put you off the second half of season 1. It has some brilliant episodes.
