Amazon.com

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

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.

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.

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.

Well, I saw this in Costco yesterday and picked it up as it is one of my favorite movies from my childhood. Me and my little brother used to rent this on VHS from our local rental place every year around the first of summer vacation. The movie itself is great for a made for TV movie, it is just as good if not better than the series animation. The show itself is five stars all the way, so why did I only give it two stars? . . .

The quality sucks. If you put it into a computer and check the size it is only 3.7 GB, not even an entire 8 GB DVD, so they went the cheap rout and used a single layered DVD. You can tell this when you play it because it is an interlaced DVD, google interlaced DVD for more info. Basically this is for playing on OLD TVs not the current HDTV ones. It also looks like they used an old VHS for the rip instead of using original sources or even a LaserDisc, those huge record sized DVD discs, they had a much higher quality than VHS and didn't degrade over time like VHS does. If they ripped from one of those it would look much better. They also didn't take much time on creating menus, when you go to watch trailers and switch languages it is a very boring plain blue menu with no sound. I could have done a better job with free software on the menus. Also, the discs were made in Mexico, they couldn't even splurge enough to have the made in the US.

I'm glad it is on DVD now but for something I have been waiting this long for I'm upset that it is such low quality. I can up the quality a little by ripping it and running a decomb filter to get rid of the interlace but why the heck couldn't they have just put out a higher quality product? I also know a few people with LaserDisc players, I might just buy the LaserDisc of this and have them rip it for me, burn it to DVD and put it in this case. The case is nice and looks good with my other DVDs and Blurays.

"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.
